We are a bussed school, therefore, we do not have an official drop-off loop.
The children’s safety is a concern to all of us. The expectation is that drivers will respond to traffic signs and they will be cautious when approaching the school area. As parents, it is reasonable to expect a safe “drop-off” zone for the children. Hence, the question: “Where can I stop in order to off load my child(ren)?” As we are a totally bussed school, we ask parents to please use the bus as we have no official kiss and ride section or loop. The only drop off area we have is located on the east side of the school. When dropping off children in this area, please be considerate of other vehicles by moving along quickly. If you plan to watch your JK/SK child, please park in the east parking lot and walk to the kindergarten area.
Busses need additional space to turn safely without clipping the front or back end of a stopped/parked car. U-turns are prohibited and would create a danger in any school area. As a gentle reminder, please ensure the safety of children by having them wear seatbelts correctly, at all times.
If you are willing to volunteer 20 minutes a day on a rotating base, please send in your name and phone number along with your child’s name and teacher to the office. Please include the days that work best for you. Thanks for your time and assisting us to make Good Shepherd CES an even safer school.
