Please abide by the following guidelines for the parking lot. Doing so will help keep everyone's children safe, and keep the lot running smoothly.

  • During arrival and dismissal times, do not park in the drop-off loop in front of the preschool and leave your vehicle, even "just for a minute."
  • If you use the drop-off lane for arrival, students must be old enough to open the passenger side door and exit the vehicle without your assistance. If they can't manage this independently, park and walk them up to the front door. 
  • If you drop off in the morning after 9:05am, you must walk your child inside and sign them in. Do not leave your child unaccompanied and ask them to buzz themselves in. This is a serious safety issue for our young students.
  • At recreation pick-up times, please do not double-park in the bus loop under any circumstances, as this is a fire lane and emergency vehicles need open access at all times.
  • Do not park in handicapped spots if you do not have a handicapped permit. This is illegal for good reason.
  • At arrival or dismissal, do not make up your own parking places in areas that are not designated for parking (i.e. if you have to drive up and over a curb or park on the grass, you are not in a designated parking spot). 

Thank you for your support in keeping our parking lot a smooth-running and safe place for families and kids!
