ick-up is from 3:15-3:45 P.M.  Monday through Thursday, and 1:30-2:00 P.M. on Friday.  After this window of time, parents must come into the building and sign out their child at the front office.  To increase efficiency and allow teachers to focus all of their attention on monitoring students and providing end of the day support, parents who walk in to the building to pick up their child will go to the multi-purpose room, provide their car line number to the dismissal staff member, and wait for their child to be brought out.

If you choose to use the car line system, you must follow these procedures:

  • No left turn off of westbound St. Elmo Street into student drop-off/pick-up lane in the driveway east of the building.
  • Stay in your car at all times.
  • Make sure your children are ready to get out of the car quickly.  Students should have their backpacks ready and should exit the car on the right-hand side.
  • No left turn onto Wahsatch Avenue when exiting the drop-off/pick-up lane from the driveway east of the building.
