Pick up and Drop off Guidelines

Updated Parking Protocols

Shull School Parking Protocols

In order to keep children safe, and keep drop-off and pick-up as efficient as possible, Shull School has adopted these protocols.  We ask that all caregivers review and follow the protocols in order to contribute to our safe school culture and demonstrate consideration and respect for all.  At the end of the day, the children are watching.  Please remember you are modeling for them the necessity of following school rules and showing respect for all.  

  • The staff parking lot is for staff only.  Please refrain from parking in the staff lot AT ALL TIMES.   Beginning Monday, October 23rd, there will be a gate up along the exit in the AM and entrance in the PM to encourage this.  

  • Drop off and pick-up should occur only in the valet line along the green or kinder curb.  Dropping off and picking up in the staff parking lot is strictly prohibited as it is a major safety concern.  

  • Drivers must remain in their vehicles while parked in the valet line during prime pick-up and drop-off times.  The valet line (denoted by the green curb along the front of the school) is to be used for drop-off and pick-up from:  

    • 7:30-8:15 am

    • 12:45-1:15 pm

    • 1:45-2:15 pm

    • 2:30-3:00 pm

The staff will help all children to their cars during these times. At all other times parking along the green curb should be limited to a maximum of 15 minutes.

  • While in the valet line, please pull all the way to the front until traffic is stopped.  A staff member will escort your child to/from your car.  Children should have their things gathered and be ready to unload as soon as the car is against the curb.

  • Whenever traffic along green curb is completely backed up to behind the first crosswalk (by kinder) those against the curb (lane 1) should load/unload there.  Those in the far line (lane 2) will be prioritized and directed to a space along the green curb (in lane 1 past 1st crosswalk) as soon as one is available.  When those on the green curb are loading/unloading those that have already loaded and or unloaded from the kinder curb (lane 1) will be directed through to the far lane (lane 2) to exit.  See map..  

Thank you for helping to keep all of our children safe, and to alleviate traffic as much as possible!
