Kindergarten parents are asked to park either in the Multi parking lot or on an adjacent street and walk students to and from class.
For grades 1-5, Gold Ridge offers two drop off / pickup options.
Drop Off and Pickup Options
1. Walk your child to and from school
Parents wishing to walk their children safely to and from school should park in either the Multi parking lot or on an adjacent street.
2. Use the Multi Loading/Unloading Zone
A drop off lane is available at the back of the Multi parking lot. Signs direct parents to pull forward before loading or unloading students. During morning drop off, we ask your assistance to have students ready with backpacks and gear so they can exit the car quickly. In the afternoon, we ask that parents keep the flow of traffic going. Please circle around the lot if your child is not present. The parking lot is very busy; please drive slowly and check for students walking to and from cars. Also, please observe the NO LEFT HAND TURN signs. Only right hand turns are allowed when entering and exiting the Multi parking lot.
The parking lot adjacent to Kindergarten (G Building) is for Staff Parking only. The curb in that parking area is a red zone. There is NO stopping, parking, dropping off, or picking up allowed.
The yellow zone in front of the school office is reserved for buses and daycare vans at all times. Drop off and pickup is not allowed.
Morning Supervision is available from 8:10 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. and from 9:00 a.m. to 9:10 a.m. (late birds.)
All children need to meet in the Amphitheater each morning. On cold and rainy days, students will be directed into the Multipurpose Room. Students will not be allowed in the classroom or play areas. Children will be dismissed from the Amphitheater (or Multipurpose Room) by yard supervisors when it is time to go to class. Parents are welcome to stay with students until the bell sounds. Children may not be dropped off earlier than 8:10 a.m. or 9:00 a.m. (late birds.)
Parents are asked to wait for students in the Amphitheater until the bell sounds at 2:37 p.m., at which time, they may proceed to classrooms. Students will be excused from class to walk to the Amphitheater to meet parents or to wait in the Multi parking lot loading zone for pickup. Staff will be available to help students in both locations until 3:00 p.m. Students not picked up by 3:00 p.m. will be directed to office to call their parents.
