Drop-Up & Pick-Up Procedures

ATTENTION SOUTH POPLAR FAMILIES:
Please join us in working towards making our school a safer place by reading & following these important drop-off & pick-up procedures.

WELCOME BACK ONTO THE SCHOOL GROUNDS
With the change in COVID protocols & safety measures, one of the most exciting things that we get to do is re-open our school grounds to parents/guardians. We love the opportunity to connect with you outside of our classroom doors at drop-off & pick-up times.

Any parents that are parking must head down to Gladwin Road.
*See LOWER LOT parking info below.

If you are expecting your child to meet you at the pick-up zone, please be sure to let the classroom teacher know (eg. a planner note, an email, etc.). *See UPPER LOT drop-off/pick-up info below.

**Special note to Grade 1 parents: Your pick-up procedure has changed.**
At the dismissal bell, all Grade 1 students will now wait just outside of the Grade 1 exterior door to be picked up by their parents. If you prefer not to park, and instead to continue using the drop-off/pick-up zone, please let the classroom teacher know so that they can send your child to meet the pick-up zone supervisor(s).

THE DROP-OFF/PICK-UP ZONE (UP TOP)
The upper parking lot is only for quick drop-offs & pick-ups. Parents/guardians that choose to use the upper parking lot must not get out of their vehicles. Please patiently wait for your turn to enter one of the 3 spots in the drop-off/pick-up zone.

*Students must enter/exit their vehicles in the drop-off/pick-up zone area. Please do not encourage them to jump out in the parking lot, or to run to your vehicle that is waiting in the parking lot area.
*Up top, the only parking permitted is in the 4 “Visitor” parking spots along Huntingdon.

PARKING (LOWER PARKING AREAS)
Anyone wanting to exit their vehicle must head to Gladwin Road. You are welcome to park in our lower-level parking lot, or in the parking spots along the fence.
*Note: Parents/guardians that send a runner to drop-off/pick-up their child (eg. an older sibling, a grandparent, an auntie. etc.) must use these parking areas.
