DROP OFF & PICK UP PROCEDURES
For the safety of our children, please follow the procedures and rules below when dropping off and picking up your child(ren) from school.
- Students are expected to be in their classrooms and ready to learn by the time school starts at 8:00am. Parents should plan to have their children at school no later than 7:55am.
- Morning supervision begins at 7:45am in the cafeteria and students can be dropped off starting at that time.
How it works:
Kindergarten: Kindergarteners will be dropped off at the kindergarten gate(or the cafeteria if arriving before 8:40am) each day by a parent/guardian/designated adult. Kindergarten teachers will open their doors at 8:25. Parents must wait with the kindergarteners until the gate opens.
Grades 1-6: Parents drop off students or walk their child(ren) to the front school double doors.
Camellia’s traffic rules for drop off and pick up are included in the school Parent/Student Handbook, which will be coming home with the First Day Packet. For an e-copy of the handbook, click here. Information on traffic safety is found on page 6. These rules are to provide safety for our students and families and were created and revised over time as Camellia’s enrollment has increased.
It is extremely important to follow our traffic safety rules and to inform those adults who drop off and pick up your child of these rules.
The rules are: Use the crosswalk at all times; when dropping off and picking up in front of the school, pull all the way forward in the loading zone even if there is not a car behind you at that moment; make legal u-turns down the street from the school if able to do so; stay out of the crosswalk when dropping off and picking up; drop off and pick up at the curb and not next to another vehicle; and parking on the corner at Cougar Drive and 50th Ave blocks traffic flow and has become dangerous for those crossing the street in the crosswalk.
These safety traffic rules need to be followed at all times for your safety and the safety of your child. Please make sure you tell those who drop off and pick up your child of the traffic rules at your child’s school. They won’t know unless you inform them.
Thank you for your partnership to create a safe environment for all students.
