Doors to the school open at 8:25am and close at 8:40am. Students should be in their lines by 8:40am. Line-up spots can be found here. A few things to note:
Please follow these simple rules to make sure Lafayette’s drop-off lane runs smoothly and safely. There is NO PARKING OR STANDING on Northampton, even past the drop off lane. Please do not get out of your car at any point on Northampton Street. The line closes at 8:40 am. After that please park in a legal spot and walk your children in.
Pull as far forward as possible before stopping;
Put the car in park;
Unlock all doors;
DO NOT get out of the car. If you want to get out of the car, please park LEGALLY (NOT ON NORTHAMPTON OR BROAD BRANCH) and walk;
Make sure your child or children are sitting on the right side of the car (side where door opens by the curb) if possible;
Backpacks should be within reach of the child or volunteer helper when the car door opens;
Once the car stops in the lane, the parent should ask the child to begin to unbuckle their seatbelt and get ready to get out of the car;
Children who sit in the third row should do the same as the above instructions but parents need to let the volunteer helper know to open the hatchback door. Parents should not get out of the car;
Once you have dropped off your child, wait until the car in front of you drives away;
DO NOT PULL AROUND THE CAR IN FRONT OF YOU INTO THE LANE GOING THE OTHER DIRECTION.
