Student Safety

Here you will find information about drop-off and pick-up, including Driveline and walking to school, and general visitor information.

How Driveline Works

Driveline is an app that helps keep students safe at dismissal. It allows for students to be released from class at the end of the day in a very organized manner. Here’s how it works:

  • Students will gather their materials at the end of the day and return to their seats.
  • Teachers will display the Driveline screen on the board at the front of the classroom.
  • As cars pull in the pick up line, a number will be entered into the app.
  • Once a number has been entered into the app, the associated student’s (or students’) name will pop up in the classroom. This is the teacher’s cue to release that student from class.
  • Teachers will be stationed around the school to assist students in safely loading cars.

Drop Off

Students are to arrive no earlier than 8:00 a.m. (15 minutes prior to the start of classes). If your student will be eating breakfast at school. please note that service will begin at 7:30 a.m. and students are to remain in the cafeteria until the main doors open at 8:00 a.m. Students are not to be on the playground before school.

Students must be dropped off only in the designated loading zone. Follow the entrance and exit route on the map. Be sure to pull all the way up to the car in front of you as this will help move traffic along and keep waiting cars off the main road. An attendant will be on site each morning to assist students with crossing the loading zone. They will also help direct traffic.

Our number one concern is student safety. Please be patient and kind.

Dismissal

Students are to be picked up no more than 30 minutes after school ends (4:00 p.m.). Students may only remain in the building longer if they are participating in a supervised activity approved by the administration. Please do no check your child out of school “early” after 3:15 p.m. The office staff’s primary duty at this time of day is preparing for a safe dismissal.

Student's Role

Your teacher will indicate when it is time to clean up and gather your things. Once you have packed up your backpack and put on your jacket, you can sit down to wait. When your ride arrives, your name will pop up on the big screen in your classroom. This is your cue to head out to the loading zone. Don’t dawdle! Your ride is driving around the building, and your job is to get to the loading zone at the same time they do. If you need to cross the loading zone, be sure to wait for the crossing guard.

Parent's Role

Each family has been assigned a Driveline number. You will be issued a tag to hang from the rear-view mirror of your car. Be sure to follow the driving route outlined on the map. When you enter the driveway, an attendant will type your family number into a system. This will trigger your child’s release from class. By the time you drive around the building, your child will meet you at the loading zone. Please pull all the way up to the car in front of you. This will help keep the loading line moving along.

Carpools

Carpools make the dismissal process go more quickly. Once you have decided on your carpools, simply exchange Driveline numbers. We’ll be sure to type them all in when you arrive.

Walking to School

SNAP stands for Student Neighborhood Access Program. The city, the school, and UDOT all work together to identify the safest routes for students to walk and bike to school. Please talk with the front office if you have questions about the safest walking or biking route for your child.

Visiting the School

All visitors must check in at the front office. The front vestibule doors will remain locked, and visitors will need to be “buzzed in” to the reception area. At the front office, visitors need to sign in using the Raptor system. A driver’s license or other state-issued ID is scanned, and the Raptor System prints a badge featuring the visitor’s name, photo, date and time, and destination. Visitor badges must be worn at all times. If a potential threat is identified, the Raptor System sends instant alerts to designated officials, including administrators and law enforcement, via email and/or text messaging.

Volunteers Needed

We need adults to assist with safe student arrival and dismissal on a daily basis. Specifically, we need help escorting students across crosswalks safely, helping students get into their cars safely, encouraging parents to pull forward when waiting in line, and reminding parents to exhibit safe driving behavior.
