RIVERSIDE ELEMENTARY 8/23/22 Parents, Morning carpool message: For the safety of yourself, your student, and your vehicle, all vehicles should drive all the way to the back turn around while dropping off your child. Please do not cut across traffic in the front of the school unless directed to do so. Also, please refrain from cutting across traffic to use a parking space to drop off a student or turn-around short cut to come back to the front. Please allow the available staff to help your student out of the car at the covered areas. At 7:30 cones will be moved, so all tardy students will enter through the front. Afternoon carpool message: Please follow the same traffic pattern as the morning time unless directed otherwise. Please be aware of the time you arrive to carpool. Only Kindergarten and Pre-K students have an earlier release time of 2:30 and will need space to enter the parking lot. Even they are asked to loop around the back. Please have your car tag visible by placing it on the rear view mirror. It is difficult to see it if it is lying on the dashboard. If you have lost or broken your first carpool tag, you may purchase another one from the office. You may do so by sending a message and $1 to your child’s teacher. Pick-up Times Pre-K/Kindergarten 2:30 1st-5th 2:50 Walkers/Flagpole:2:50 Walker/Flagpole parents: Please wait for duty staff to bring your student to you. Please do not cross the carpool/bus traffic. A staff member will be available with a stop sign to help your students cross safely. The Flagpole/ Walker Zones have been set up so you have a place to wait for your student. Please do not come under the cover, our staff will monitor your students until we release them to you. To prevent parents mixing with students during release times, this request is imperative for the safety of all students.
This week, as we prepare for even more buses to be on the road, we urge you to be more aware of school bus and pedestrian safety during your morning and afternoon travels. Let’s work together for a great start to the 2022-2023 school year! #WeAreCaddo
Please see attached for REVISED carpool instructions. Contact your child's teacher or the office if you have any questions. Thank you
