McDonogh 26 Elementary Policies & Procedures

  • Car Rider Rules & Procedures

    We need all parents to comply with the drop-off and pick-up procedures so that all students can arrive and depart in a safe and orderly manner.

    SAFE DROP OFF

    Car riders MUST be dropped off in the car rider line on Virgil Street. Car riders CANNOT be let out on Jefferson Street. All students need to wait in their cars until 8:35AM. No student should exit their vehicle until they enter 1 of the 3 designated safe drop-off spots. Car riders CANNOT be left out to wait on the corner with the Crossing Guard. She is there to only cross those children who walk to and from school. If you arrive after 9:00, you will be REQUIRED to find a legal parking spot on Jefferson Street and walk your child(ren) into the office where they must be signed in.

    SAFE PICK-UP

    No child will be released to a vehicle without the official school issued number clearly displayed. (Car numbers must hang from the passenger visor.) If you do not have the official school issued number, you will be REQUIRED to find a legal parking spot on Jefferson Street and go into the school office to sign your child(ren) out. Students will be called to the car gate; they must wait until their vehicle stops in 1 of the 3 designated safe loading spots before they will be allowed to enter their vehicle. No child will be allowed to depart from the car rider gate unless they are entering a vehicle (with the official school issued number displayed) that is waiting in the Virgil Street car rider line. If you arrive after 4:00, you will be REQUIRED to find a legal parking spot on Jefferson Street and walk into the office and sign your child(ren) out.
