The school’s carline procedure is implemented daily to ensure the safety and security of our students. ALL PARENTS MUST USE THE CARLINE. The safety of our students depends on all drivers following these procedures. Please note that:
- The new traffic pattern will be the same for morning arrival, afternoon dismissal, rainy day and hot day carlines.
- All cars (regardless of direction of travel) will stop at the intersection of Mayerling and Shoshone to turn onto Mayerling and enter the school grounds.
- All cars will exit out the Shoshone gates and will proceed south onto Shoshone.
- Cars may only turn right onto Shoshone, as they exit the school yard.
- No students or parents will be allowed to walk out the Mayerling/Shoshone gates.
- Pedestrian traffic will continue to use the Mayerling entrance to the school.
North Flowing Traffic
Traffic flowing north on Shoshone will STOP at the intersection of Mayerling and Shoshone, at the 4-way STOP sign. Cars will turn left onto Mayerling, taking turns at the intersection, following the expected procedures of a 4-way STOP intersection. Cars will then proceed ½ block (on Mayerling) to the school’s Mayerling Gate entrance and turn right into the school. Drivers will then proceed in a single line of traffic (forward in the coned/marked lanes) to create a single line of waiting cars. Cars will then exit onto Shoshone through the south gate (near the Church), making a right turn only.
South Flowing Traffic
Traffic flowing south on Shoshone will STOP at the intersection of Mayerling and Shoshone, at the 4-way STOP sign.

Drop-off and Pick-up Policies
Morning Carline (Drop-off)
Students will exit their cars, with the assistance of the carline parents. The students will then walk directly to their classroom line-up area.
Afternoon Carline (Pick-up)
The carline gates will be opened at 2:35 p.m. daily. This will allow cars to proceed into the yard early so that waiting cars on the street can be minimized. The dismissal bell is rung at 2:40 p.m. Cars entering the yard will be expected to stay within the lane lines that are marked by the traffic cones. School staff and carline volunteers will use the school’s 2-way radios to alert students that a car is waiting. Those students will then be sent to the student waiting area for assistance into the waiting car.
At no time will students be allowed to cross over in front of/behind waiting cars. This policy will mean that all students will enter/exit from the driver side. If a student is seated on the passenger side, a carline parent will stop the flow of traffic to allow the student to cross the line of traffic safely. Students may only cross the line of traffic if they are accompanied by an adult. All drivers must pull forward as indicated by school staff/carline volunteers. Cars will exit the school grounds using the Shoshone gate, making a right turn only.
