STEM Resources

Morning Drop-off:

  • For the safety of our students during morning drop-off time, please remember the following:
  • Pull your vehicle all of the way forward to the curve (by the playground gate) to unload your student(s).
  • After your student(s) has exited your vehicle, please pull forward, out of the way, so that the next car may unload.  
  • Students may only be dropped at the curb by the playground.  Students may not  be dropped off in the outer lane of the parking lot, on the street, or in the front of the building.
  • Parking is NOT allowed curbside!  Please park in the parking lot if you need to stay longer or get out of your car with your child.  This will help keep traffic moving!

Afternoon Pick Up

  • For the safety of our students during afternoon pick-up time, please remember the following:
  • Transitional Kindergarten (TK) and Kindergarten students will be picked up at the West doors on VanRaalte Avenue. Door #13
  • Siblings of TK and Kindergarten students will also picked up at door #13.
  • 1st-5th graders will be picked up in the parking lot.  There is a “drive” lane and a “pick-up” lane.  Students may only be picked up at the curb, not in the “drive” lane.  
  • PLEASE, PLEASE, no parking in the pick up or drive lanes.  We are trying to keep traffic moving quickly and safely for everyone.
  • All of the siblings will be picked up at the youngest child’s waiting place. This will allow parents to only have to make one stop.
  • Please do not motion students across the traffic lanes to the parking lot, or motion students into the traffic lanes to get into your vehicle.  We want to keep our students safe!

We are Here For You and your student.
