Drop Off:Vehicles enter our driveway on the west end of our parking lot. Our driveway has two lanes. The right lane is the DROP OFF and PICK UP lane. The left lane is for through traffic. Drivers should pull as far forward as possible or up to the bike racks before dropping off students if traffic flow allows. Students may be dropped off at any point along the sidewalk however, pulling forward as far as possible gets more cars off Bany Road. Once dropped off, students are expected to walk on the white safety line on sidewalk to the front doors of the school. Drivers must remain at the wheel. 14 When dropping students, drivers should put the car in park until the student is on the sidewalk. This ensures the students are safely away from the vehicle and prevents the risk of injury if backpack straps are stuck in the closed door. Remember that the Beaverton School District is a tobacco-free environment. No person shall use tobacco in any form on district property. If your vehicle is on district property, cigarettes should be extinguished.
Pick Up: When students are picked up by car or daycare vans, they wait with staff in front of the school in the white safety zone. Children are expected to wait in grade level lines until they see their pick up vehicle. They then will let the monitor know they are going and walk to the vehicle. Students should get into the vehicle on the side closest to the sidewalk. If for some reason they need to enter on the driver's side, we expect an adult to get out of the car to open the door. Adults are easier to see than children and this will alert other drivers to use extra caution.
Crossing Guards: Students are protected by a crossing guard at the intersection of Granada and 179th. There are also crossing guards in front of Errol Hassell School on Bany Road from 7:30 to 8:00 a.m. and 2:35-3:00 p.m. Students should cross Bany Road only in front of the school. Children must be cautioned to use the crossings guarded by these people, walk their bike while in the street, and to cross only in the designated areas.
