Independence Elementary Dropping Off & Picking Up Procedures

  • Dropping Off (7:25 a.m. - 7:35 a.m.)
    Our doors open at 7:25 a.m., as this is the time that we have supervision for students available.  Arrangements with Kids Club, our before and after school child care program, should be made if parents need to drop off students before 7:25 a.m. 

    • If dropping off curbside, we ask that you pull ahead as far as possible to prevent traffic congestion. If you need to exit your vehicle during drop off, please park in the parking lot. The front of the building is a fire lane; vehicles should never be left unattended.  

    Picking Up (2:20 p.m.)
    Students need to be picked up after school promptly at 2:20 p.m. Arrangements with Kids Club should be made if parents are unable to pick up students within 15 minutes of school being released.

    If your student will be picked up at the end of the school day, there are two options:

    Option 1: Park your vehicle in our parking lot and come into the building to wiat for your child. Please note that we utilize a video surveillance system, which is activated during regular school hours. You will need to push the call button on the system in order to be buzzed-in.

    Option 2:  Allow your child to walk to your car on his/her own for a curbside pick up. Students using this form of pick up should be able to recognize and get to your vehicle independently. Again, please do not leave unattended vehicles in the pick up area. Student dismissal is at 2:20 p.m.
