Lone Peak Elementary School student drop-off and pick-up is a very busy time. As a result, we are outlining the procedures for you to ensure the safety of our students.
Students need to be dropped off/picked up on time.
First Bell (school begins): 8:55 a.m.
Drop-off is between 8:35 – 8:55 a.m. Students should wait outside behind the school. Students arriving after 8:55 should enter through the front doors. (Breakfast drop-off is between 8:30 – 8:50 and only those students may enter through the front doors.)
Tardy Bell: 9:00 a.m.
Dismissal Bell (M-TH): 3:30 p.m.
Pick-up is between 3:30 – 3:40. Students will be brought to the office after 3:40 and parents must park and come in.
Dismissal Bell (Fridays): 1:50 p.m.
Pick-up is between 1:50 – 2:00. Students will be brought to the office after 2:00 and parents must park and come in.
Drop-Off / Pick-Up in Front of School
To ensure student safety and bus access, the parking lot is closed to all entry with the exception of staff, substitutes, and volunteers between 8:35 and 8:55 or as soon as the last bus arrives. It also closes between 3:30 and 3:40 Monday through Thursday and 1:50 and 2:00 on Fridays. As soon as the last bus leaves, the lot will open up to parents. There is no parking in the bus lane during school hours.
If you are dropping off a student in front of the school (2220 E), please make sure that you pull all the way forward, against the curb, quickly let your child out and then move carefully on.
Please remember not to park your car along the west side of 2220 E or the north side of High Mesa Drive. The street is very narrow and this will help us to create a natural traffic flow. In addition, when you pull to the curb, please make sure you have pulled over as far as you can. Please do not pull up to the stop sign to let students out. This compromises their safety. Finally, please do not u-turn in the intersection. This is very unsafe for our students and crossing guards.
Drop-Off / Pick-Up in Back of School
In the back of the school there is also a drop-off/ pick-up zone. Students may be dropped off by pulling over to the curb in any place from the corner to the zone. Again, remember not to park either on the street or in the drop-off zone. If you are in the drop-off zone, the inside lane is the only lane for drop-off. The outside lane is for movement in and out of the zone. Letting children out in the outside lane places student safety in jeopardy.
Safe Walking Routes Map
Walking students and students whose parents have assumed responsibility by dropping them elsewhere should always cross streets at the crosswalk and immediately enter school grounds. Safe Walking Routes
We know that student drop-off and pick-up can be very stressful. We ask that you be patient with each other as well as with the teachers and staff who are helping to monitor for student safety. Aggressive behavior directed towards each other or teachers sets a negative example for our students. Remaining calm ensures that we can move you through this busy time safely and efficiently.
Please make sure you are dropping off and picking up on time. Once the tardy bell rings at 9:00, students who are not in their classrooms are tardy and need to get a slip from the office. After the first 15 minutes of school, parents need to come in or call the office at the time of arrival to check in their students. If parents are checking their students out during the school day, they can call the office when they are no more than 5-10 minutes away and we will call the student to the office. Parents must come to the office to sign their student out and will be required to show photo ID if office staff do not recognize them. Students not picked up within 15 minutes of dismissal will be brought inside and parents/guardians must park and come to the office to pick up their students.
Thank you for your support.
