Pick Up/Drop off guidelines
- Parents should enter the lot using the driveway nearest the church and exit using the driveway farthest from the church.
- Parents and students should wait for the yard supervisor to signal when it is okay to cross in the crosswalk.
- Do not stop in driving lanes or the crosswalk to allow your child(ren) to exit the car.
A) To drop your child(ren) without exiting your car:
- Proceed to the designated parking slots nearest the playground and pull into a slot.
- Once your child(ren) have exited the car, continue to drive forward and exit via the driveway farthest from the church. (This eliminates the need for cars to back-up in the area where children are walking.)
- Students should wait for the yard supervisor to signal when it is okay to cross in the crosswalk.
B) To walk your child(ren) into school:
- Please park in the second row of parking slots or on the side so as not to disrupt the flow of cars moving through the first row as defined above
- Parents who wish to pick up their child(ren) from the Cottage Way lot must park the car and walk to the crosswalk or beyond to escort their child(ren) to the car.
- No parking is permitted in the row of spots closest to the fenced area. This eliminates the need for cars to back up into the crosswalk area.
- Parents who wish to pick up their child(ren) without exiting the car should use the Walnut Avenue lot. (Please see other side.)
- The gates will be locked by the faculty supervisor at 3 P.M. Anyone who must exit after 3:00 will need to proceed to the front of the school.
OLA Parking Requirements
In an effort to enhance the safety in our parking lots we would like parents to be very aware of our drop-off and pick-up procedure.
- Students and parents must always use the crosswalk when walking to or from a car in the parking lot.
- Children may not be left unattended in a car. This includes parents conducting business in the office and dropping off or picking up siblings.
- Do not leave your car idling unattended.
- Cell phone use is prohibited in the school parking lots.
Kindergarten Drop-off & Pick-up
- Kindergartners should be dropped off and picked up from the Cottage Way lot during school hours. This minimizes the disruption to our other classes.
- Parents may wait quietly for dismissal in our Kindergarten Corner or at the bottom of the steps near the playground.
Walnut Avenue Parking Lot Drop-off & Pick-up

- Do not park in the loading/unloading lane before, during or after school on school days.
