Arrival and Dismissal
Drop off/Pick Up
Before your child comes to school, please make sure they know how they will be getting home. This will ensure your child is safe at dismissal and you will know where they are.
Please follow the designated traffic flow patterns as you enter and exit our campus.
Please do not park in student drop-off and pick up areas, day care bus areas, and other no parking areas. If you park and pick up your child, please come and meet them in the parent pick-up area and walk them back to the car using designated crosswalks.
The safety of all our children is our foremost concern and we ask for your patient cooperation before and after school to keep everyone safe during student pick up and drop off.
Cars parked in fire lanes and other no parking zones will be reported to the authorities. This is for the safety of our students.
Students may arrive no earlier than 8:30 AM unless they are purchasing breakfast or attending a scheduled activity. Students are not permitted to wait in the office. Breakfast starts at 8:30 AM in the MPR. Staff supervision on campus begins at 8:30 AM. Do not drop your children off before 8:30, as there will be no supervision.
All students are required to leave the school campus immediately after dismissal, unless they are involved in after-school campus activities.
Bicycles, Skateboards, and non-motorized Scooters
Students are permitted to ride bicycles, skateboards, and non-motorized scooters to school. For safety reasons, it is recommended that only third through eighth grade students ride to school. It is also suggested that all students who ride to school wear a helmet for their protection. Students must lock their property in the bike rack area. Those who ride to school assume all responsibilities and risks involved. Riding on campus is not allowed.
Mini-bikes, motorcycles, motor-bikes, motorized scooters, heelies (tennis shoes with wheels), and roller blades are not allowed on campus at any time.
School crosswalks and crossing guards are provided by the City of Phoenix and the Deer Valley Unified School District for your child's protection. Please encourage your child to use these crosswalks and not to cross school driveways or busy streets at any other points. We care about the safety of our children and know you will expect them to take advantage of the precautions established for their protection. Parents, please model safe and cooperative behavior for your child and all of our students.
While students are riding the school bus or waiting at a designated bus stop, they are expected to conduct themselves in a respectful and orderly manner. Riding a school bus is a privilege provided for students within our attendance area who live within those areas in which transportation services are provided (.5 miles for Kindergarten, 1.0 miles for 1-6, 1.5 miles for 7-8 grades).
The DVUSD Transportation Department will provide copies of the School Bus Rules and Regulations to every student. Please review them with your children. Do not pick up students in the bus-loading zone at any time.
Please observe speed limits when driving near or around our campus!
