Carpool Procedures

Morning & Afternoon Carpool

  • Cars transporting students to school should enter the carpool lane from Olde Weatherstone Way nearest Castalia.
  • Please remain in a single file along the curb while waiting to deliver students (Do not leave students unattended before the bell rings).
  • Please have all children exit your car on the right side of your car.
  • All children should learn to unbuckle themselves and exit the car by themselves (this quickens carpool and promotes independence)
  • Please do not park or leave your car unattended in the carpool lane ever.
  • Do not exit your car – it is not safe. Please have children enter the car on the right side. Do not get out of your car to speak with carpool attendants.
  • In the afternoon: Please display your child’s nametag in the car window on the right side.
  • Please turn right when exiting the carpool driveway.
