DROP-OFF & PICKUP
Our old Capitol Hill neighborhood can present a parent with complex traffic flow logistics. These answers will point you in the right direction!
What time and where do I drop my child off in the morning?
The first bell is 7:50 and school begins at 7:55 am. this year. Kindergartners should line up outside rooms 105 and 106 their respective classroom doors. All other classes line up according to room number under the covered play area.
Can I drop my child off early?
There is playground supervision beginning at 7:40 a.m. Please check to make sure there is a supervisor on the playground before leaving your child.
Where do I pick up my child?
Pick-up for all kindergarten classes will take place outside the kindergarten doors (closest to Galer St.). Pick-up for all other grades is outside one of two sets of doors facing the covered play area.
Where should I park when I am dropping off or picking up my child?
There is limited parking on 18th Ave. E. and 19th Ave. E.. Please do not park in the school bus zones on 18th Ave E. or Galer nor block any of the curb cuts at 18th Ave E and Galer. The Stevens parking lot is closed during drop-off and pick-up times: do not park or turn around in the lot. There are also two drop-off zones, where you can let your child out: 18th Ave E. in front of the school for northbound traffic (not in the bus zone), and 19th Ave E. at the base of the ramp for southbound traffic. Do not U-turn on 19th Ave. or head South on 18th Ave during drop-off/pick-up times. Please pull over to the curb for drop-offs in the noted directions within these zones.
My child takes the bus to Stevens: What are the procedures for getting to/from their classroom?
Kindergarten students taking the bus will be met by a staff member and helped to find their correct Room # to line up. At the end of the day, students will be escorted to the bus line-up on Galer St. There is always a staff member on bus duty at the beginning and end of the school day.
What if we are late arriving to school?
If you arrive after school starts, you need to bring your child to the office to sign in. If you are picking your child up early, you need to sign them out from the main office.
