Part 5.0 Student Supervision

Section 5.4 Carpool Supervision

Policy Statement:

Carpool supervision

All Staff will have an assignment during afternoon carpool hours.  Many staff members will have an assignment during morning carpool hours also. Please plan your day accordingly.  It is imperative that staff be outside before 3:30 to begin carpool duty.

There are six stations for carpool pickup, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple.  Each station must be manned by at least one staff member.  One staff member will "clear the field", encouraging students to get to their appropriate station and refrain from lingering or playing on the field.  One staff member will facilitate traffic flow.  One staff member will stand at the end of the sidewalk (where the barricade is placed) to ensure students remain in the carpool area until a parent picks them up.  One staff member will monitor the inside hallway.  One staff member will monitor the east door to ensure students don't leave via that exit unless accompanied by a parent.

At 3:50, two carpool attendants will remain out at the carpool line with the remaining students.  At 4:00 p.m., any remaining students will be brought into the building to wait for their parents and a late pickup form will be filled out.  The school secretaries will supervise waiting children.  Parents are required to come in and check out their students after 4:00 p.m.

Student Behavior at carpool:  Carpool attendants MUST enforce carpool behavior rules.

  • Students are to walk directly to their vehicle.
  • No students are allowed to play on the playground during carpool pickup.
  • No pushing, shoving, or horseplay of any kind.
  • Hands, feet and belongings must be kept to self.
  • No swinging of backpacks, lunchboxes, or any other items.
  • No yelling, screaming, or speaking in loud voices.
  • Students are expected to have all belongings when they go out to carpool.  They are generally not allowed back in the school.

Students who refuse to comply with these rules after teaching and warning will be sent in to the secretary and placed on carpool suspension for one week.  Administrator's will fill out the suspension form, and require the students parents to come inside to sign form and pick up their child.   The Jr. High Secretary or Assistant Director will notify parents of Jr. High students placed on carpool suspension.  Parents will be required to pick up students
