Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Car Riders:
The car rider line is located in the back of our building to allow more cars to park on our driveway.


There will be one line that separates into two lines in the back of our building.  We will unload six cars, three cars per lane.  A staff member will assist your child out of your vehicle and safely into school.  Another staff member will come to your vehicle with an iPad so you can sign your child in.


The first six cars will be loaded first. As soon as those cars are loaded, we will pull up the next six cars and load those. During loading time, staff will assist the child to the car. It will be the responsibility of the parent to secure the child in their car seat.  When the child is secured, staff will indicate it is safe for you to pull away.

It is important that your yellow car rider card be displayed in the passenger door window every day. If you need additional or replacement cards, we are happy to get those for you.

Bus Riders:

Students who ride a school bus to and from school will be required to have a parent/guardian/adult at the bus stop.  This person must have a bus card and show it to the driver.  If the person at the bus stop does not have the bus card, the child will be returned to Hanthorn. It will then be the responsibility of the parent to pick the child up at Hanthorn in a timely manner.
