Drop-Off/Pick-up Procedures

Welcome to a New School Year at Susan B. Anthony!

PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF PROCEDURES

THERE IS A LOT HERE, BUT PLEASE, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

At Susan B. Anthony, safety is a top priority. We have students ages 4 and up being dropped off in the morning and several dismissal times, including a new dismissal time for kindergarten. For the safety of your child, and all of our children, and to remain as efficient as possible, please follow the procedures below.

GENERAL PROCEDURES FOR ALL OF SBA:

  • Both lots (upper and lower) are drive-thru only. There is NO parking for drop-off and pick-up.
  • Pull all the way forward along the yellow curb (upper lot) or along small fence toward playground (lower lot) before dropping off or picking up your student.
  • Drive slowly and please refrain from cell phone use while in school parking lots (to be extra safe for our students).
  • Do not drop-off or pick-up your student in your car out in the street - use the designated areas only.
  • You may only enter the upper lot (Gilbert) by making a right hand turn into the lot. You may only exit

    by making a left-hand turn.

  • You may only enter the lower lot (Santana) by making a left hand turn into the lot. You may only exit the lot by making a right-hand turn.Please ensure your child is ready to quickly exit the car upon stopping in the designated area(s)

  • Please respect our neighbors' driveways, their coming and going, as well as non-school traffic.
  • Police will ticket and have ticketed for turning in the wrong direction, speeding, jaywalking, dropping off, or picking up along curbs in the street.

 

PARENT WAITING AREAS:

Parents do not come to the gates or on campus unless you have business in the office or with your teacher, so if you walk your child to school to drop them off and/or to pick them up, you may do so as follows:

Upper Lot: Parent drop-off or pick-up is out on the sidewalk under our red school marquee or on the sidewalk at the exit of the parking lot near the stop sign. If it can be helped, do not cross in front of the entrance/exit of the parking lot. Make sure your student knows where you will be waiting before you drop them off. We understand that sometimes students cannot see you in the waiting area, so if that happens you may walk closer to wave them down.

Lower Lot: Drop-off and pick-up waiting area is the grassy area of the park outside of the school's pedestrian gate. Again, make sure your child knows where you will be before dropping them off.

A waiting area allows us to monitor our students visually, keeps congestion down, and assists us in trying to maintain a closed campus during a busy, hectic time.

TK, Kindergarten, and ist: It is very helpful if you post your child's name in the front window or dashboard for pick-up, especially this first trimester.


SPECIFIC PARKING LOT ASSIGNMENTS:

TK
AM Drop-off: Upper lot drive-thru: Students will exit at the yellow curb along the front office/6th grade building, walk the short distance, and enter the kindergarten gate and then will go to the kindergarten playground. A teacher is at the gate, as well on the playground. Older siblings will enter the middle gate onto the main campus.

PM Pick-up: Upper lot drive-thru: Teacher will have the students in the area in front of the office. Pull the car all the way up, so student can hop in along the yellow curb.

 

KINDERGARTEN

AM Drop-off: Upper lot drive-thru: Students will exit at the yellow curb along the front office/6th grade building, walk the short distance, and enter the kindergarten gate and then will go to the kindergarten playground. A teacher is at the gate, as well on the playground. Older siblings will enter the middle gate onto the main campus.

PM Pick-up: Lower lot drive-thru in OUTER PORTION OF LOT (different from AM due to dismissal time of 2:42/Wed. @1:42): Students will be waiting in a coned-off section of the parking lot with their teacher. As you turn left into the lot, follow the signs, and pull forward along the inner curb. Teacher will walk student over to hop into your car.

Kindergarteners with older siblings PM Pick-up: 1st-6th grade dismisses at 2:57/[email protected] :57. Therefore, there will be a teacher on duty at 2:57 at the lower lot that will have all kindergarteners who have an older sibling. They will also have any kinders without siblings not picked up on time during kindergarten dismissal. In these scenarios, you will still use the lower lot, but not the outer portion. You will still turn into the lower lot with a left-hand turn, but not into the outer lot. You will proceed forward, through the gate into our lower lot Ist - 6th grade drive-thru system.

 

1st THROUGH 6TH GRADE AM DROP-OFF AND PM PICK-UP

  • Students with the last name A through L use the upper lot (Gilbert).
  • Students with the last name M through Z use the lower lot (Santana).

    o    THE ONLY EXCEPTIONS TO THIS ARE OLDER SIBLINGS OF TK AND KINDER STUDENTS FOR AM DROP-OFF AND OLDER SIBLINGS OF KINDERGARTEN FOR PM PICK-UP.

  • DO NOT LINE UP EARLY FOR 1ST THROUGH 6TH IN THE LOWER LOT. KINDERGARTEN DISMISSAL BEGINS AT 2:42/[email protected] :42. 1ST THROUGH 6TH GRADE GATE FOR PICK-UP WILL NOT

OPEN TILL 2:55 in the lower lot.

 

STUDENTS ON DAYCARE BUSES

Day care buses drop-off and pick-up in the bus zone near the lower lot on Santana Avenue. Please ensure your daycare provider is informed.

We know this is a lot of information, but with over 800 students and a brand-new kinder dismissal time, we all need to be aware of, and follow the procedures, as well practice patience. On behalf of the staff, we have always appreciated our parents' cooperation and willingness to protect our students' learning and their well-being, which includes their safety.
