Student Drop-Off and Pickup

  • Student Drop-off/Pickup Areas

    Student drop-off and pickup is located along the front parking lot off of 7th Avenue.  We also have a more limited "pull-in" along Greenway Road.  We specifically ask people to be aware of traffic backing up along Greenway Road.  Due to the number of vehicles and limited parking, cars may need to continue past the school, turn around at a safe location, and return to the school. 

    Areas to watch out for are:

    •  The pull-in zone along Greenway Road.  Please do not allow your vehicle to be in traffic while waiting to pull in.  If you find yourself backed out onto Greenway and cannot safely pull in, please proceed east on Greenway to turn around and come back.  Once you are back, you will likely find the area clear. 

    •  Turning left into Mountain Sky on 7th Avenue.  There is a left-hand turn lane into our parking lot near LeMarche Street, but during heavy traffic, cars often get backed up.  Please be careful not to pull too far forward as buses are exiting the bus bay.  Please do not try to enter the parking lot queue until there is space to completely fit into the line. We want to avoid blocking oncoming traffic.         

    Dismissal tends to be very backed up and we ask that families please pull cars forward as close to the flagpole as possible before letting students into their vehicles to allow more cars into the lot.  Drivers are asked to stay in their vehicles so they are able to pull forward.   

    Please do not use the bus bay prior to school or immediately after school while buses are present.  Our concern is for your student's safety, your safety, and your vehicle. 

    It is common for our families to wait in the neighboring communities during dismissal.  We remind families that the communities to the west and south of Mountain Sky are private communities, and they do not allow parents to park on their streets during pick-up.  

    Early Student Pickup

    If you are picking up a student early, please come into the attendance office located on the north side of the main office building, near the flagpole. Make sure you have a valid form of identification and that you are an approved contact in our system.  If you are missing either of these, you will not be allowed to have contact with the student. 

    Late Students

    Students arriving after the 9:00 a.m. bell need to sign in at the attendance office by a parent or guardian.
