Drop Off & Pick Up
ARRIVAL ON CAMPUS
We look forward to the arrival of our students on campus each morning. Safety is our number one priority. There is NO supervision prior 8:30 AM. With the exception of the breakfast program, which starts at 8:15, PLEASE DO NOT HAVE YOUR CHILD ON CAMPUS PRIOR TO THAT TIME. Students will have a designated spot where they will line up by classroom prior to entering the building at 8:40 AM.
BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL DROP-OFF/PICKUP
Student safety is our highest priority. We have policies and procedures on how to drop students off at the school, and how to pick students up after school. Please make arrangements to drop-off or pick-up your student at the paved area in front of the Desert Sky Elementary's main entrance. This area has been created to provide a safety zone and to keep students from having to be in an area with car traffic.
If you choose to use the drop-off and pick-up area in front of the school, please pull to the curb to allow your child to exit and enter your car from the passenger side directly onto the curb. We will not allow children to walk into the driving lane to enter or exit cars on the driver’s side of the car. Thank you for helping us keep all children safe, and teaching your child this procedure. You must stay in your car if you pull up to the curb, as this is a fire lane. As cars exit this lane, please pull forward to allow more cars to access the curb.
If you need to come into the school, or wish to meet your child on campus, please park in the center parking lot designated for visitors. If your child is late to school, or if you are picking them up early, parents need to come into the office to either sign them in or sign them out. When walking your child to your car, please use the walkway provided. This is a safety issue.
The parking lot and entrance on the east side of the building is for staff and students who ride the bus. You will NOT be allowed to pick-up or drop-off your child in this area, it is used as a bus loop ONLY.
