Bus Loop: Before 7:30 AM and after 3:00 PM

  • Parents are now free to utilize the East Lot / Bus Loop before buses arrive 
  • Plan to take advantage of this by arriving before 7:30 AM
  • After school pickup may resume after 3:00 PM
  • Planning an early arrival will allow for a quick transition into the school day

Main Loop Drop-Off/Pick-Up 6:30 AM through 4:00 PM 

  • Drivers should plan to pull forward to door 3N of the Arts Center
  • Staff will be present during both phases of transition in support of student safety 
  • Please ensure crosswalks are not blocked and directives from staff are followed
  • The optimal time for end of day pick up is after 3:00 PM. 

Red Lot (West Student/Staff Lot) 

  • Following drop-off, drivers may continue to the exit point on Delton Ave.
  • Pick-up from this location is encouraged after 3:00 PM 

West Entrance (Tonka Center doors): after 3:10 PM

  • Primarily utilized for after-school activities pickup 
  • Drivers may be asked to yield to buses related to activities
  • Please avoid using the West Entrance for pick-up from 2:30-3:10 PM as traffic in the West lot is exiting immediately after school.
