Pick Up/Drop Off and Parking

Parking Lot Safety

Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures

 

There are two lanes entering the parking lot.  The right lane is for curbside drop-off and pick up onlyThe left lane is used to enter the small parking lot near the entrance, or to continue through to the larger parking lots.  There are three exceptions when a parent may enter the left lane and end at the right lane, curbside.  These exceptions are made for the following circumstances:

 

  1.  Curbside Drop Off for 4th and 5th grade students -  Parents may enter the left lane initially, then cross over to the curb side lane after the cross walk at the office (the 3rd cross walk).  Never block the crosswalk or drive through lane when doing this.  We have Parents on Patrol volunteers to assist with this crossover.  – (Class starts earlier for these two grades.)
  2. Curbside Pick Up for 3rd grade (2:20 to 2:35 Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri) – Parents may enter the left lane initially, then cross over to the curb side lane after the crosswalk at the office (the 3rd cross walk).  Never block the crosswalk when doing this.  Teachers are supervising to assist with this crossover.  If you are entering the parking lot after 2:35, enter in the right lane and remain in the right lane until you reach the upper grade pick up area. (The reason for this exception is because the 3rd grade dismissal is the same time as 1st and 2nd grades, but the pickup location is at the upper grade lunch area.)
  3. Curbside Pick Up for 3rd grade (12:25 to 12:45 Wednesday) and 4th & 5th grade (12:35 to 12:45 Wednesday) - Parents may enter the left lane initially, then you may cross over to the curb side lane after the crosswalk at the office (the 3rd cross walk).  Never block the crosswalk when doing this.  Teachers are supervising to assist with this crossover.  If you are entering the parking lot after 12:45, enter in the right lane and remain in the right lane until you reach the upper grade pick up area.

 

Curbside Drop Off for Kinder, 1st, 2nd & 3rd grade students - Enter the parking lot in the right lane and remain in that lane.  Drop off is allowed between the 2nd and 3rd crosswalk.  Never drop off before the concrete sidewalk at the 2nd crosswalk.  Be sure your student is ready to exit the car on the right hand side when you stop.  Do not park, and do not exit the vehicle.

 

Curbside Drop off for 4th and 5th grade students is explained in the exceptions above. Drop off may occur between the 3rd and 4th crosswalk.  Be sure your student is ready to exit the car on the right hand side when you stop.  Do not park, and do not exit the vehicle.

 

Curbside Pick Up for Kinder, 1st and 2nd grade students – Enter the parking lot in the right lane and remain in that lane.  Pick up occurs between the 2nd and 3rd crosswalks until 2:35.  After 2:35 the students are escorted to the upper grade pick up area to join the older students being dismissed.  Teachers and/or Aides are supervising and assisting the students during this time.

 

Curbside Pick Up for 4th and 5th grade – If you are arriving before 2:40, you must enter the left lane and remain in the left lane and park in a parking space (to avoid blocking departing 3rd grade pick up.  If you enter on or after 2:40 you must enter the right lane and remain in the right lane until arriving at the upper grade pick up area.

 

For safety’s sake, please follow the guidance of the parent volunteers (or teachers) that are helping to keep our students safe and assisting with the flow of traffic.  This is not an easy job, and your cooperation is necessary and greatly appreciated.  Please remember:

 

  • NEVER USE YOUR CELL PHONE WHEN DRIVING IN THE BROOK KNOLL PARKING LOT!

 

  • Always use one of the four (4) crosswalks when crossing the drop off and drive through lanes.

 

  • Students exit the vehicle on the right hand side only.

 

  • Pull as far forward as is reasonably safe behind the car in front of you to help maximize the number.

 

  • Drivers never exit the vehicle when dropping off or picking up curbside.

 

  • Never drive over the concrete parking space curbs, nor park the wrong direction. 

 

  • Always exit and enter the parking on the correct side.

 

  • DO NOT go into the opposite lane on Brook Knoll Drive/Treetop to go around stopped traffic in order to enter the parking lot.  Wait in the line on the street and enter when it is your turn at the driveway/entrance.

 

  • At peak/heavy traffic times, when you exit, please turn right onto Brook Knoll Drive to assist with the flow of traffic allowing more cars to exit quickly.

Vehicles are subject to public traffic regulations and control under 21107.8(a) vehicle code.
