Pick-up and Drop-off procedures

Students Who Arrive or Depart by Parent Car

  • Students arriving/departing by parent car will arrive on Fourth Street behind the school.

  • Students should arrive between 8:10 AM and 8:20 AM. There is no supervision available at school before 8:10 AM.

  • Students may exit parent cars at any point along the sidewalk. It helps the line move quickly if cars pull as far forward as possible. 

  • Pick up for elementary students begins at 3:10 PM. Please do not start lining up in the car line until 3:05 PM. Elementary students are not dismissed from class until 3:10 PM, so it will be a few minutes before they come outside.

  • Pick up for secondary students begins at 3:16 PM. Parkings picking up secondary students (grades 6-12) should not enter the car line before 3:16 PM because waiting for dismissal holds up the car line for everyone.

  • All students must be picked up by 3:25 PM as there is no supervision at the school building after this time.

  • Please drive to the back of the building and enter Fourth Street from River Street, not Pearl Street. PLEASE DO NOT LINE UP ALONG PEARL STREET as this is where LPS school buses park.

  • Once your child(ren) are in your car, you may exit the car line. Be cautious as you pass cars still loading.

  • Do not exit your car. A LPS staff member will escort your student to your car and open the door. Car seats and boosters should be installed on the passenger side to facilitate a quick and safe handoff.

  • For everyone's safety, drive slowly and do not talk on your cell phone in the car line.


Students Arriving by Foot

  • Students who walk to and from school may enter through the doors on Grand Avenue or Fourth Street. 

  • Walking students should cross with the crossing guards at Pearl Street and Grand Avenue or Pearl Street and Fourth Avenue. 

  • Walking students should not arrive before 8:10 AM and should exit the school building by 3:25 PM.


Student Who Drive to School

  • Students who drive to school will park in the PAC parking lot or the north end of Grand Avenue. Students who drive to school are required to submit a parking permit application in order to receive a parking sticker.


Late Arrival or Early Departure

  • Students who arrive after 8:30 AM should use the front entrance on Grand Avenue and will require a pass to enter the building.
