  • New Pick-up and Drop-off procedures


    To ensure the safety for all of our students and to prevent parking lot accidents Desert Mountain has implemented some new student drop-off and pick-up procedures. 

    Morning Drop-off procedures:

    •          Please drop your student off north to the cross walk. This process ensures that the flow of traffic runs smoothly and does not create traffic backup. This process also ensures that we do not have any accidents with vehicles passing on the left side of the flow of traffic. 


    Afternoon Pick-up procedures:

    •          Students will use student waiting area. Students will now be waiting at the colored seating area inside of the school gates located under the shade trees. Students will exit the gate north of the crosswalk to access their rides. Students will only be permitted to use the cross walk gate if their parent/guardians are waiting in the parking lot.
