Before School Drop Off/After School Pick Up Procedures

The following procedures have been put in place to make the beginning and end of the day safe and smooth. We ask that all parents assist us in assuring that every child at Lyon is safe by following these rules. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

All parents are asked to remain in their vehicle and pull up alongside the canopy at the front of the building to unload/load their children on the curbside. The line for cars starts at the student loading area and continues around the outer perimeter of the bus lanes. Parents are not allowed to park and walk their children through the parking area to/from a vehicle. If a child is having difficulty and requires adult assistance, please pull your car into one of the 15 minute spaces.

All traffic should go around the bus lanes and remain in the car lane for drop-off/pick-up. Only a single lane of traffic will be allowed in the inner circle of the driveway along the front of the school. Anyone needing to enter the school for a a before/after school meeting or activity is asked to park in the outer lot and utilize the crosswalk near the building to cross. The only exceptions to this are vehicles with designated handicapped parking permits and the student services transportation vehicles.

Parents will not be allowed to park and wait in the school hallway or under the front canopy of the school for their child, but must remain in their vehicle before and after school. If your child is assigned a bus please use this service whenever possible.

If you will be picking children up at the end of the day, please write a note indicating your child will be a car rider or a walker. Your signature, along with the correct day/date, will help in making the correct changes. If on the rare occasion your transportation arrangements require a change for your child during the school day, please call the office before 3:00 p.m. This will allow the office staff ample time to notify your child’s teacher of the change.

Students are not allowed to ride any bus other than the one assigned. Thus, a child may not ride home on another bus for a play date or go to another child’s home if it requires a change from their assigned bus. Parents will need to make their own transportation arrangements for this purpose.

Finally, please observe and follow all directions of the Lyon staff. They are present to assist in a safe and efficient pick up for your children. Thank you again for your cooperation with these procedures.
