SJCS Carline Drop-Off/Pick-up Information

Aug 29, 2017
Middle School (MS) Drop-off/Pick-up:

Carpools (parents) that are dropping off a middle school student 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.

The Front Admin Lot is NOT to be used for AM drop off of or PM pickup during the carline timeframe. The added traffic and illegally parked vehicles block the Fire Lane and impede access to the building in case of emergency. Please obey these rules for the safety of all the students and staff and to help keep carline flowing smoothly. You will be asked to vacate the admin lot if you are illegally parked which may result in moving to the end of 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 they get to 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. The reason we don’t do this is because 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 in the parking lot. 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 allowing 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 visible on your car window in the front drivers side window. Beginning August 30 you will receive a parking violation if your pass is not properly displayed in your car 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 information and turn it into Dr. Jones’ office. If you do not follow the rules set out for you, the consequences are as follows:

  • 1st offense – written warning documented in Renweb
  • 2nd  offense – After-School Detention
  • 3rd  offense – Loss of driving privileges for 2 weeks
  • 4th  offense – Loss of driving privileges for rest of the semester
Late Stay Pick-up:

Students must be picked up in the MS lot. Call Mrs. Quinones when you arrive and she will send your child out.
