Re: Parking Lot Procedures
Student safety is always foremost in our minds as we continue to strive to implement procedures that
keep our students safe and improve efficiency. We have an 8 second rule and need everyone’s help
in ensuring that students exit and enter the vehicle within that time. Please stay in your vehicle. If you
require longer than 8 seconds, please park in a stall. We would like to thank you in advance for your
Morning Procedures:
1. There are 2 lanes and 2 drop-off areas
2. Upon entering the parking lot for Grades 1-6, remain closest to the curb and continue toward
the cafeteria
3. Students may exit curb side in the “drop off zone” in yellow. An adult or Junior Police Officers
(JPOs) will assist if needed
4. Parents dropping off Kindergarten students will stay on the left hand side and proceed around
the parking lot to the Kindergarten building. An adult or JPO will be there to assist your child
with getting his/her belongings out of the car
Afternoon Procedures:
1. There will be only 1 lane upon entering the parking lot closest to the curb. An adult or JPO will
be along the sidewalk to assist if needed
2. Kindergarten students will be picked up at the Kindergarten building. Please display your
child’s placard so we can quickly identify your child and assist them into the car.
3. Older siblings have permission to meet their Kindergarten sibling and wait to be picked up on
the Kindergarten side
Please be reminded that:
1. Students should exit the car on the curb side for their safety
2. Drivers will be asked to drive around if their child is not waiting in the pick-up area
3. Please use the marked crosswalks located in the entrance/exit of the parking lot and next to
the cattle gate in the rear
Morning care is available (Kalihi YMCA) for parents that need to drop-off children before 7:15am.
Students should not be on campus before 7:15am
Please help us keep your child safe by picking him/her up immediately after school. If students are
unable to be picked up by 2:30pm (M,T,Th,F) and 1:40pm (Wed), the A+ Afterschool program
provides supervision. Please see the office for registration information.
Thank you for your patience during this time!
