Due to Covid-19 Screening, social distancing, and other safety measures, Drop-off and Pick-up procedures will take longer. Thank you for your patience. 


    Arrival - Drop Off

    The car rider area is located in the front of the building.  Drivers are asked to turn off of Queens Creek Road and drive straight toward the high school.  Go around the circle at the high school and then enter onto QCE campus. There are signs to guide you to the drop off circle.

    An adult is on duty from 8:00 a.m. -8:25 a.m. to assist with the unloading of students.  All students will be screened with three questions and have their temperature taken prior to exiting the vehicle. The questions are below:

    1. Have you been in close contact in the last 14 days with someone who has been diagnosed with Covid-19?
    2. Do you have any of the following symptoms: fever, chills, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, new cough, or a new loss of taste or smell?
    3. Have you been diagnosed with Covid-19 within the last 10 days?


    Please stay in your car and allow your child to enter the building under the supervision of the adults on duty.  If you have items to deliver to the classroom, please park in the parking lot and take the items to the office.  We will be happy to deliver them for you.  If you feel you need to take them to your child's class, all visitors must obtain a visitor's pass from the office, before being permitted to visit any classroom for safety purposes.

    Any student arriving after 8:25 a.m. will need to be escorted to the office by the adult who brought them to school. The student will be counted as tardy for that day.



    Dismissal - Pick Up

    At the end of the day, students are dismissed from the car rider area.  Parents will follow the same driving patterns as followed for morning drop off.   Dismissal for car rider students begins at 3:10 p.m. in the circle area. Students are required to remain in the designated area until their ride arrives.  Staff members will be on duty to assist students who are being picked up and will supervise each child to his/her car.  Adults who are picking up a student should remain in their vehicles at all times.  If your child has a physical condition that my require additional assistance, please park in one of the handicap parking spaces and a staff member will assist you.  All students are required be picked up by 3:45 p.m. each day.  If a student remains after this time they will be taken to the office.

    The procedures in place are for the safety of your child as well as other children and teachers.
