* Please read our revised carline plans from our interim Principal: carline-letter *
Drop Off and Pick Up:
The school building does not open until 7:30am, (except for Kids’ Adventures, which opens at 6:30am). Students are not allowed to wait in the building until staff is available for supervision at 7:30am. If you drop off before 7:30 students will be waiting outside unsupervised. Please make sure they are dressed for the weather or better yet, check them into Kids’ Adventures.
Highline Academy takes the safety of our entire community very seriously. Moving 500+ students in and out of our building each morning and afternoon in the safest, most efficient manner possible, is through car line. Therefore we strongly recommend the use of car line.
Car line is SAFE; we have lots of staff to ensure everyone gets in and out of the right car in a timely manner.
Car line is EASY; You don’t have to park or get out of your car. The “kiss and go” in the morning let’s you go through in your pj’s if you so desire. No judgement here, we’re all a little jealous.
Car line is FAST; when you come early in the morning. Drop off begins at 7:30am. Allow yourself plenty of time for your student to get to class on time! If you come at 7:45, yes, you will have to wait a few minutes and most likely your student will be late to class, so plan for traffic, it’s there every day!
If you don’t want the hassle of finding a parking spot, or dealing with traffic in the afternoon, don’t come until 3:45. By then the first couple of batches have gone through and pick up is a breeze.
*Students not picked up within 20 minutes of dismissal will be escorted to Kids’ Adventures. If you are running more than 20 minutes late, you should pick up from the south east door of the gym in Kids’ Adventures.
At the end of the day the fence to carline will be opened at 3:20pm. Please plan accordingly.
