Transportation Information

If your student will not ride a school bus to school, please adhere to this student drop off/pick up plan:

The DCE drop off plan is the same as in years past.  Please plan to stay in the pick up line and drop your child off as you get to the front of the building.  Due to health mitigations, we will not be opening car doors this year; however, there will be staff members in front of the building.  Parents also have the option to park in a parking spot and have his or her child walk across the crosswalk in front of the building.  Drop off begins at 7:00 a.m. and ends at 7:34 a.m.   Class starts at 7:35 a.m.  If you are dropping your child off after 7:35 a.m., you will need to come to the front desk with your mask on, have your temperature taken, and provide your ID to sign your child in.  Please refer to the diagram below to review the drop off pattern.

Afternoon pickup will be in a drive thru fashion. Parents and caretakers will not be entering the building for pickup. Your child will be assigned a number and you will receive a card for your front window. Please place your card in the front window upon arrival in the pick up line. When you are nearing the cafeteria doors (on the left hand side of the building), staff will locate your child inside and bring him/her out to you. Please make sure to drive slowly and be patient through this process. If your child is not a permanent parent pickup, the office or their teacher must be notified no later than 1:30 p.m. in order to prepare them for pick up. Parent pickup will begin at 1:50 p.m. When buses are dismissed, the parent pick up line will halted to allow buses to depart.
