LPE Car Rider Procedures 
Cars for morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up will enter on Broadway Street just off of 41( south of the school on the left, if you are traveling south), then turn left on Collins Street to access the loading/unloading zone on the side of school (parallel to the old gym). 
  • Morning: From 7:30 until 8:00 AM, use the drive closest to the building and under the shelter for unloading. Students cannot exit the vehicle until the car is at the unloading zone and an adult is present on duty. Please have your child open their own door and exit the car. We are encouraging students who walk or ride in a car to arrive by 7:45 AM so they can begin morning work and complete computer activities. Students will be supervised by staff members as they make their way to the lunchroom or classroom. All students must arrive before 8:00 AM. The gate to the unloading zone is closed by a police officer at 8:00 AM. After that time, all cars must come to the front of the school, walk your child in, and get a tardy slip. All visitors must report to the front office (main driveway) for a visitor's badge before entering the school building. 
  • Afternoon: Starting at 2:30 PM, you may begin to arrive at the Broadway Street and Collins driveway entrance. We continue to require all parents to remain in their cars at all times to make the afternoon pick-up process faster. For safety reasons, the car pick-up line cannot begin to form prior to 2:30 PM. If you pick up your child in a car on a daily basis, you will be provided a school-issued sign with a number for your car window. You must have the school-issued sign (not a home-made one) placed hanging from your mirror so that the number is visible to the school official during pick-up. Again, car riders will be dismissed beginning at 2:45 PM at the car rider location on the side of the campus. All students must be off campus by 3:00 PM. At no time can a car be parked or left unattended on the side campus. All visitors must report to the office for a visitor's badge before entering the school building. 
Changes in Transportation: 
We regret that we cannot accept changes in a child's transportation over the telephone. Due to the enormous volume of calls we receive daily, and concern for the safety of our students, any changes in transportation will have to be submitted in writing to your child's teacher to authorize us to send your child home a different way than he/she travels daily. Changes cannot be made via e-mail because the teacher might not check e-mail and in case of subs, they would not receive the message. We regret any inconvenience, but this is done to protect the safety of our students. 

IMPORTANT ITEMS:
  • EARLY CHECK-OUTS MUST BE MADE BEFORE 2:30 OR YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL CAR RIDER IS OVER AT 3:05. 
  • FOR SAFETY PURPOSES, NO CELL PHONE USAGE IN CAR RIDER LINE. 
  • Walkers should be students that live in an area where buses do not run, (i.e.: 1 mile radius of school). Walkers are children that walk HOME, not to a car.  Please do not park at the church across the street to pick up your child.
