Drop-off and Pick-up

If you choose to provide transportation:

Drop-off and pick-up times can be hectic. But if we all work together, it can be a quick and efficient experience. If you would like to speak with one of the teachers, please pull into a parking space, stop into the office, and wait until after dismissal. Also, please remember to:

  • Drive slowly and be aware — precious children are everywhere.
  • Drop children off between 7:15 a.m. - 7:45 a.m.
  • Enter from the Onondaga Creek Blvd. entrance only.
  • Be patient with fellow drivers.
  • Stay off your cell phone.
