Crossing Guard Duty

Parents are required to help with crossing guard duty in the mornings and afternoons during drop-off and pick-up times. To facilitate the shared responsibility of this duty, the volunteer coordinator will contact parents for carpool duty. All families are expected to volunteer for this important duty at least four times during school year per student enrolled. Parents are required to demonstrate understanding of the crosswalk expectations by taking an on-line crosswalk safety course. Prior to the first day of crosswalk duty, each parent is required to take and pass the course quiz. Please see the front office if you need to take this course.

 Carpool Number

Each family is assigned a carpool number which is used for more than just carpooling. It serves as a family identification number for a variety of school administrative items. All students should know their carpool number.


  • Afternoon dismissal begins promptly at 3:15 p.m.
  • Students will be called from their classroom by carpool numbers between 3:15 and 3:30 p.m.
  • Afternoon carpool ends at 3:30 p.m. or when the carpool lane is clear, whichever comes later.
  • Students who have not been picked up by this time will be taken to Aftercare and parents will be charged according to the Aftercare Policy. No exceptions will be made. No students will be left unattended on the school grounds.

Helpful Reminders

  • Please be careful and sensitive to our neighbors on Lark Sparrow Street as well as off of Colorado at Garnet Lane.
  • DO NOT park in front of any driveways. Be extremely careful making u-turns.
  • Please stay OFF of cell phones during car line, especially when it is moving.
  • During pick up, keep your yellow carpool tag up and visible until you leave the lot. We want to ensure the staff delivers children to the correct vehicle.
  • Load students only at the red curb, not down the car line. It is MUCH safer loading at the red curb.
