Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

The safety of all our students is our highest priority at Sage Canyon.  Because of the high traffic that comes in and out of our school twice daily, we have designated procedures to accommodate and promote the smooth flow of traffic. We need all families to help and support the safety of all students and assist our school in being a good neighbor in our residential community. 

General Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures 
  • Drivers may not use a hand-held cell phone at any time while driving in the school parking lot. 
  • Drivers should remain in the car. If drivers plan to get out, cars must be parked in a marked stall or on the street. Do not park along the red curb in front of the school. 
  • Remain in one lane, single-file at the curb when unloading in the drop-off areas in front of the school. Please be respectful and follow the instructions of the staff assisting so that the traffic flows. 
  • Pull cars all the way forward so the flow of traffic can continue.
  • Children should be dropped off curbside only, not in the parking.
  • Parking in the neighborhood and walking with your child onto campus is an option.
  • When on foot, masks must be worn at all times during drop-off and pick up. 
  • Dogs of any size are not allowed on campus. 

Before School Drop-off:  7:45 a.m- 8:00 a.m. 
  • Students will enter through designated gates and go directly to their classroom. 
  • Parents/Guardians are not yet allowed to enter campus and will say goodbye to their children at school entrances.
  • For in the car drop off, have your child’s backpack next to them so that they can exit the car quickly. Do not place materials in the trunk. 
  • Masks must be worn by adults and students upon arrival and dismissal. 

Afternoon Pick-up 
  • Parents may not enter campus at the end of the day. 
  • Students may be picked up after school in the drive-through loop or at the school’s front gates. 
  • Masks must be worn by adults and students upon arrival and dismissal. 
  • As many of our students and families walk to and from home, please be mindful of your speed and drive safely in and around our neighborhood. 

Bicycle, Scooters, Skateboards, and Zucas 
  • Independent bicycle & scooter riding is allowed only for 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. Younger students should ride with their parents to and from school. 
  • Riders are required by state law to wear safety helmets. 
  • Bicycles, scooters, and skateboards must be walked when on school grounds. 
  • Bicycles can be locked to the bike racks.
