Parking, Drop-Off & Pick-Up

For the safety of our students, please follow the directions on the Parking, Drop-Off & Pick-Up Map. Please drive carefully and slowly in the school and church driveways as children are walking, loading and unloading. For safety reasons, please do not drop off your child(ren) on 22nd Avenue or 56th Street.

PK2 & PK3 Classes at Coral Ridge Drop-Off/Pick-Up

Please drop off and pick up your child in front of prekindergarten classrooms at Coral Ridge (Federal Highway entrance). Teachers and assistants will be ready to help your child from the car in the morning and will be ready in the afternoon to place your child in the car. Please observe the specific instructions from the lower school office in identifying your car so that the teachers and assistants can assist you smoothly. If you desire at any time to park, please note the places designated on the map. Please refrain from having a parent-teacher conference from the car.

PK4–Grade 5

Please enter from 22nd Avenue only from the north; the gate opens at 7:45 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Morning drop-off, please proceed through the single car line to the furthermost point that cars are stopped. Cars should always remain to the outside of the orange cone line. Please pull up to the furthermost point that cars are stopped. An administrator, teacher, or assistant will greet you curbside, assist your child with the car door, and escort him/her safely. For PK4 and kindergarten drop off, please drop off and pick up your child(ren) in the circle drive in front of the gymnasium. Please clearly display your child's numbered car sign so teachers and assistants can identify your car quickly and assist you as smoothly as possible. Your child will be waiting with his/her teacher for curbside pick-up. Please refrain from having a parent-teacher conference from the car.

If you desire at any time to short-term park, please park across 56th Street at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. For the safety of our children, please do not park in the drive-through area of the school.

Grades 6–12

Drop-Off/Pick-Up in the designated area behind Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church.

Student Vehicles

Students with a valid driver’s license may drive to and from school and park in the designated student spaces, which are shown on the Parking, Drop-Off & Pick-Up Map. All student vehicles must have a WA parking permit sticker fixed to the lower left corner of the rear window. To obtain a parking permit, students must sign a written agreement—endorsed by parents—to drive and park according to the established regulations.

Please download the Student Vehicle Registration Form.

Student drivers are required to properly operate the automobile in a safe, mature and responsible manner and to comply with the school and public traffic regulations, including but not limited to speed, noise and courtesy. While the school will take precautions to safeguard vehicles, there is no assumption of liability by the school for any loss or damage which may occur while a vehicle is parked on campus.

Parents with Multiple-Aged Children

Parents of grades 6–12 students should drop off through the WA driveway if there is a grade 5 or younger student in the vehicle.

Special Notice: Afternoon LATE pick-up

All students pre-kindergarten through grade 5 who are not picked up by 3:15 p.m. will be enrolled in CASA until parents arrive. At 3:15 p.m., CASA charges will apply. (The circular drive in front of the gym is NOT a designated drop-off or pick-up area before 3:45 p.m. for any student.)

Severe Weather Procedures

Please be reminded of the following procedure, which will be implemented in the event there is an extreme weather condition (severe lightning, strong winds, massive rain down pour):

  1. For upper school parents, please go to the regular pick-up location at the church. Please remain in the parking area until 3:20 p.m., so the lower school line can clear. Upper school students will be dismissed for pick-up in front of the gym at 3:20 p.m. The gym will be the holding area for all upper school students during pick-up time.
  2. Enter pick-up line through the open gate at 22nd Avenue—the regular procedure for lower school parents. If you have lower and upper school children, please pick up all children at the same time.

Upper school students who are not picked up in front of the gym will be permitted to leave only when the weather permits. This includes student drivers. Parking in front of the gym will not be allowed in order to ease egress. We will release students to you as you arrive.

PK2 and PK3 students remain at the same designated areas regardless of weather.

PK4 through grade 5 parents will proceed through the regular car line all the way to the circular drive in front of the gymnasium. The children will be waiting in the gymnasium and will be escorted to your car. Please have your car number displayed as this will help expedite this process. Your patience is requested and appreciated as your child's safety is our utmost concern.
