Please read a letter to our school families explaining the traffic control around STEM along with the traffic violations and fines from Douglas County Department of Public Works Engineering. We hope this will be of help to encourage drivers and students to follow the traffic control and provide a safer environment for all.
THERE IS NO DROP-OFF DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE MIDDLE SCHOOL.
Elementary Drop Off Locations/Process
Elementary AM Drive Line:
K-5th grade students will be dropped off and report to the designated area for each grade level, identified by the light blue boxes on the diagram. Students arriving prior to 8:10 should report to the BASE program. Staff will be available to supervise that area beginning at 8:05am and will walk students into the building at 8:10am. Classes begin at 8:20am.
Students dropped off with middle/high school siblings, prior to 8:10 will be provided a tag and should enter the elementary entrance and will be supervised by the Academy staff. The sibling tag provides supervision without additional cost.
Parents of single students will drop off their students after 8:05am will not be charged any additional fees.
Students that do not have siblings and arrive prior to 8:10 will be charged a $5.00 fee for this supervision. We encourage families to register for the BASE program. See the information on the Academy website.
Elementary PM Drive Line:
Students with siblings should wait in the grade level area until their older sibling picks them up and escorts them to their vehicle.
All elementary students must be picked up by 3:30.
If parents are unable to pick the students up by that time should utilize the BASE Program.
