Can I pass the line after my child has been picked up?
- You may pass the line when it is safe to do so if you picked up your child on Hawkin’s Crescent.
- If you picked up your child in the school parking lot, please do not pass unless a traffic monitor has indicated that you may do so.
Vehicle Identification Number
- If your child is picked up regularly, you may wish to request a vehicle identification number.
- The vehicle identification number should be hung on your rear-view mirror for after school pick-up.
- Having the number allows monitors to call out the number to the students and direct them to your vehicle sooner. Therefore, please make sure your child knows your vehicle number.
- If you do not have a vehicle identification number and wish to get one, please complete this form.
