Carpool Pro Tip:

 

Navigating carpool might feel a little confusing and hurried at first. Don't worry! The St. Luke staff will be out in force to welcome you in and help guide you through the process. Remember to build a little extra time into your morning routine for a stress-free commute!

Morning Drop Off and Afternoon Pick up Protocols

Morning Procedures - Grades K-8

K-8 students will arrive between 8:00-8:20 am. The tardy bell rings at 8:30 am. K-8 drivers should enter the carpool lanes and advance forward as directed by staff. Carpool attendants will assist students with exiting the vehicle for a safe arrival on campus.

 

Morning Procedures - P3 & P4

Preschool students will arrive between 8:15-8:30 am. Preschool drivers should park in the church parking lot and walk students to the classroom through the Bowman Plaza.

  • P4 students assigned to the Parish Center classroom will have designated signage and parking spaces next to the gym.
     

After-School Procedures
  • Please turn off your engine while in the holding zone.

  • Parents should remain in their cars at all times.

K-8 students will be dismissed in 2 staggered times according to their grade bands; K-2 and 3-8. Students will assemble (in their designated area) with their homeroom class and will be escorted to the cars by staff. 

 

Preschool Dismissal 

Drivers may park in the church parking lot in order to sign out their child per state regulations. For those families who have older children, the preschooler will be picked up first. Staff members will notify siblings' teachers who will release the student to meet their families behind the preschool portables.

  • P4 students assigned to the Parish Center classroom will have designated signage and parking spaces next to the gym.
