Student Drop Off/Pick Up Procedures

Operation Cooperation

  Student Safety is our First Priority

 

 Please know that school parking lots are not designed to handle the number of vehicles that come to campus at the beginning and end of each school day. Your patience, understanding, and support of “Operation Cooperation” is appreciated. The Oak Grove staff does everything they can to encourage parents to follow the parking lot rules and maximize the flow of traffic. The staff knows that your time is precious, but the safety of every student is their first priority.

 

Please follow the law; do not park illegally (red curbs, handicapped parking without a placard, etc).  You will be cited by the OC Sheriff's Depatrment.

 

Student Drop Off in the Mornings:

  • Students can be dropped off beginning at 7:20 a.m. when teachers begin morning duty. 
  • Parents are to enter the parking lot by way of the BUS LANE if driving UP Sanborn street (the main parking lot entrance from this direction is for staff only). 
  • Parents that are driving DOWN Sanborn Street are to enter the parking lot by turning left into the main parking lot entrance.
  • Say your goodbyes before your turn to unload – this will help keep cars moving in line.
  • Please follow the directions of staff members on duty.
  • Pull as far forward along the curb as possible before stopping your vehicle.  There should be very little room between your car and the car in front of you.
  • Students are to exit their vehicle only on the passenger side and they must be able to get themselves out of the car without any help from their parent.
  • Parents are to remain inside their cars – do not leave car unattended.
  • Do not pull into staff parking spots to drop off/pick up your child. Children are not to walk across/through the staff parking lot. Children are to always walk on the sidewalks.
  • After your child exits the car, parents are to angle their car to the left and drive into the PASS THROUGH lane and make room for the cars behind them to access the unloading area along the curb.
  • Students will wait in the "On Deck" area between the trash building and the Hall of Fame along the front of the school until the teacher on duty releases the students to walk directly to their classrooms (Mondays-Thursdays).  On Fridays, students will be released to the blacktop area and will wait at their assigned class line location - the Friday Flag Assembly will begin at 7:45 a.m.
  • School starts at 7:45.  A student will be tardy if they are not in their classroom lines by 7:45.

 

Student Pick Up in the Afternoons:

*** The Staff Parking Lot is closed until 2:05 p.m. 

  • Have a sign on your car dashboard with the name of your child and grade level.
  • Pull as far forward along the curb as possible before stopping your vehicle.  There should be very little room between your car and the car in front of you.
  • Parent cars are to wait on Sanborn Street in a legal parking spot until the dismissal bell rings at 2:05 p.m. 
  • Parents can be ticketed by the Sheriff's department if they are blocking the flow of traffic heading down Sanborn street while waiting for the parking lot to open at 2:05 p.m. – please do not queue up in this direction because it will block traffic.
  • Parents are to remain in their vehicles - do not leave vehicles unattended in the parking lot.
  • Do not pull into staff parking spots to drop off/pick up your child. Children are not to walk across/through the staff parking lot. Children are to always walk on the sidewalks.
  • If you park on the street and walk onto campus, please wait for your child in the front of the school between the trash building and the car line grass area.
  • If you arrive before 2:05, please do not go directly to any of the classrooms, nor the playground area - the campus is closed until 2:05 p.m.
  • Please follow the directions of staff members on duty.
  • Car line students will wait on the grass for their parent’s car.  Students are to walk to their car as soon as they see it pull up along the loading area curb &/or when their name is called by a staff member.
  • Backpacks must go inside the passenger area of the car, not in the trunk.  If you need to use your trunk space, then you will be directed to a designated loading area away from the car line.

Rainy Day

  • On rainy days, students will wait in the Hall of Fame when they arrive and the car line students will dismiss from the Hall of the Fame.

 

 

Kindergarten:

Pick Up

  • Parents are to line up along the kindergarten wall with their student signs.
  • Please do not park illegally (in red zones, handicapped parking spaces, etc.) while on campus. You will be cited by the OC Sheriff’s Department.
  • Students will be called one by one and they will meet their parent outside the blue gate.

Rainy Day

  • Arrival:  early bird students are to wait inside the Hall of Fame in the designated kinder area until a kinder teacher comes to get them.  She will walk the students to their classroom.  Late owls will wait in the library and will line up at their designated class line location.
  • Dismissal will be conducted from the office.  Parents will line up with their student signs and dismissal will proceed as normal.  We do ask that parents wait quietly while in the office since school business will continue to be conducted during this process.
