Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

We appreciate the smiles and waves we receive each day as we take on the challenge of safely entering & exiting 800 students from our campus.  There are 15-20 staff members on duty and we do our best to direct traffic, monitor the bus lane & playground and teach children the rules that will keep them safe.  We need you to help by driving with caution in the parking lots and school zones, observing school zone speed limits of 15 mph, and using ALL crosswalks. Children and Parents walk bikes across the crosswalk. In the morning we ask walkers to wait for a crossing guard to arrive before crossing.  Your patience and support are truly appreciated.                                                   

-Falcon Drive Parking Lot- Express Lane (east side of school) is the Drop-off & Pick-up area for 1st-5th grade students.
-Turney Ave. (Front of school) is for PreK-1st grade parents to park and walk students to/from campus. 
To keep students safe when dropping off in the morning, please pull forward, as far as possible when dropping off students, as this prevents traffic congestion on Falcon Drive.  Students will enter campus using the fire lane gate.  The staff parking lot (Falcon lot) will be closed to parents.  
If you wish to park and walk up to the school, please park in the Turney lot (front lot).  Students may not exit unparked cars from the Turney lot.  Turn RIGHT when leaving the Turney lot since this helps keep the traffic flow moving.  **Please use the crosswalk in front of the office** 

Students will be lined up along the curb at 2:25 (Falcon lot).  We will call students to the numbered pick-up spaces.  Parents should display a sign in the front window of their vehicle identifying the student(s) and grade(s) that are being picked up. 

We ask that parents pull all the way forward and stay in their car along the curb and pick up at the curb only, as directed by the teachers on duty (not from the passing lane or by calling children over to another area of the parking lot).  Please thank our teachers on duty for keeping our students safe, especially in the heat.  Note: The Falcon Lot is for Staff Parking only.

Please review this information with your child.

Important Info:
  • Campus opens at 7:10am and breakfast is served in the cafeteria. 
  • During Rainy Days & Heat Advisory Days, students can go their classrooms at 7:15.
  • The first bell rings and students go to class at 7:35 (fire lane gates close).  The tardy bell rings at 7:40am (front gate closes)-students are expected to be in their seats ready to learn at 7:40.
  • Thank-you for your patience and cooperation during our morning drop off. Our biggest rush is from 7:25-7:40 so we recommend arriving by 7:20 to avoid traffic congestion.   
**The Bus Lane is for buses only per DPS regulations.  This is not a student drop off or parent parking area **
**Parking in the Fire Lane along the red curbing is a violation of Goodyear Fire Dept. rules and could result in a ticket.**
