Traffic Pattern Guidelines

For families who drive or walk their children to school, there are certain traffic pattern guidelines that the school asks you follow.  We take your child's safety seriously and want to make sure that drop off and pickup time goes as smoothly as possible.  If you have any questions about the following guidelines, please call the school. 

Before School - Daily

Please enter our drive off of N. 11th Avenue E., let kids off and exit out the West Grace Church driveway.  There is room for 3 vehicles to line up, so pull forward.  Do not pass another car on their right side as children may be exiting the vehicle.  If your child needs extra time to say good-bye, pull your car into a parking space in front of the school.  Please be considerate of morning schedules and traffic flow.  Never drive on the playground area with your vehicle, even in inclement weather.  

Afternoon Dismissal - Daily

The bell rings at 3:05 p.m. and students line up in the gym to be dismissed.  You should be available to pick them up between 3:05-3:15 p.m.

Walkers and bikers:  Students who walk home from school or who ride their bikes will be escorted across the street.  Special permission is given for others crossing on a case by case basis.

Car line:  Park on E. 17th Street N. facing North and wait until the walkers and bikers have been escorted across the street.  As soon as all of the students have lined up, the first two cars in the line may pull into the school's driveway.  Two cars can fit into our drive at a time, so if you are the first one to pull in, please pull far enough ahead so another car can pull in behind you.  Students will enter the cars from the passenger side.  After you have picked up your child, you will be able to proceed out of the West Grace Church driveway. 

Park and walk:  Those who wish to meet their children should park in the First Assembly of God Chuch parking lot and gather on the grassy area near the NCS parking lot and wait for the child to be released by the teacher.  The child must ask permission to cross over to you.  Do not pull your own child from the line and teachers are not allowed to dismiss children to people waiting in the Grace church parking area. 

Your cooperation helps keep our students safe.
