Pick Up & Drop Off

  • Controlling School Trafiic is Essential for Safety

    Students should be picked up and dropped off at the car loops only. Parents wishing to park should walk their children to the front gate. Parents are not allowed to walk their children to their classrooms.



    Broward County provides bus transportation for students living more than two (2) miles from the school. It is the responsibility of each teacher to see that students are dismissed at the appropriate time to catch their bus. Staff members are not allowed to hold students past dismissal time as buses leave promptly with or without the students.

    Detailed information such as schedules, transportation forms, etc. will be provided at the beginning of each school year.
