SJCS Carline Drop-Off/Pick-up Information
Middle School (MS) Drop-off/Pick-up:
Carpools (parents) that are dropping off a middle schooler are to use the MS carline that is located in the back of the school off of Ridge Rd. (next to the football stadium). **If your carpool includes a MS AND HS student, please use the MS drop-off. This will help alleviate the HS carline.
High School (HS) Drop-off:
Carpools (parents) that are dropping off only HS students are to use the front entrance and drop-off at the sidewalk by the gym and the HS entrance. Please drive around the student parking lot and pull down the last row past the buses and around to the HS entrance. We ask that parents continue to fill in on the LEFT side UNTIL the little white “NO PARKING” sign. Once space is filled to the small white sign, please line up on the RIGHT SIDE STARTING at the SPEED BUMP. We do understand that it would be much less confusing if we simply followed the laws of traffic and took the first right into the student lot, picked our student up then exited towards the back of the lot by the buses all while staying on the right side of the road. Unfortunately, law enforcement has requested that we have as many cars as possible in our driveway and not on St. Joseph’s Drive, due to the large trucks entering and exiting Carmax and regular traffic trying to get through. Our current car line procedure allows for the greatest number of cars. We will have a staff member at the top of the hill (at the speed bump) directing traffic, allowing for people to make the left turn to exit, and allow for drivers to transition over to the left side. Please see the HS Dismissal Map for details.
HS Student Drivers (Juniors & Seniors):
Please make sure that you have your parking permit visibly on your car window. Beginning tomorrow, Aug. 30 you will receive a parking violation if your pass is not displayed in your car the window. These permits are static rather than a traditional sticker, so if you have another car that you might possibly drive one day, please transfer the sticker to that car and fill out another form with the car info and turn it into Mrs. Bell’s office.
