  • Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures

    Arrival Process

    *Unsupervised students should not be on campus before 8:15 a.m.

    Club M is available from 7:00 to 8:15 a.m. and students signed up for this program need to be signed in at Club M located in the MP Room.

    The drop off loop for K through 3rd grade students is on Kermit Lane at the front entrance of the school.  A staff member will be in the loop 8:15-8:30 to welcome and assist the students arriving.  

    The drop off loop for 4th through 8th grade students is through the parking lot entrance on Kermit Lane.  A staff member will be by the stairs 8:15-8:30 to welcome the students arriving. 

    Please note the entrances are one way.

    Students arriving after 8:30 (8:15 for Middle School) must go to the office for a tardy pass.  

    Please do not double park or leave your car unattended in the loop.  The front loop is a fire lane.


    The parking lot is intended for staff only.  Please park on the street if you need to leave your vehicle.


    Dismissal Process

    To facilitate the dismissal process and for your convenience, we ask parents to use the car loop.  Once a teacher sees a parent at the car loop, the child will be called to go to the car.  The dismissal schedule is as follows:


    Front Loop Kindergarten 2:00 p.m.

    Front Loop 6-9 Classes 3:00 p.m.

    Parking Lot Loop 9-12 Classes 3:00 p.m.

    Back Gate (catwalk located on Linda Sue Ln and Link Dr) 3:00 p.m.

    The back gate will be closed at 3:15 p.m.  Any students not picked up by 3:15 will go to the office.


    Parents should stay in their vehicles when using the car loops.  Simply drive up the loop and your child will be called to the car.  Please remember to keep the carline flowing.  If you need to exit your vehicle, please park on the street and walk in.  Please do not double park.

    Our 3:00 pm loop tends to be our most congested time.  With this in mind, it is preferred that drivers picking up their child at this time enter the front loop by turning right.

     All visitors/parents may park at the street.  The parking lot is reserved for the staff.  Please remember that our school is located in a residential area - drive safely, be respectful of our neighbors and obey the speed limit.

  • A Message from the Dean of Students

    I love our campus. CMP American River has the charming buildings, the wonderful flora and fauna and wide open spaces. It’s easy to see why so many people love to hang out in its park-like atmosphere; however, it’s this openness that creates so many safety issues.

     The reality is, our relaxed school community creates a dangerous feeling of entitlement that is easy to miss if we  are not careful. In order to facilitate a safe environment for everyone on campus and avoid undue feelings of privilege, we established some procedures that parents should abide.

     First and foremost, in order to keep everyone safe, during and after school, we ask parents who are visiting the campus to sign-in in the office and get a visitor’s badge. If you are here for Running Club. Sign-in. Maybe you want to watch violin practice. Sign-in. If  you see someone whom doesn’t have a badge, ask them if they’ve signed in a the office. If not, please encourage them to sign-in and  get a badge. Together we can make the campus safer.

     Additionally, it is a requirement that you be live scanned in order to be in contact with children when you are on campus. Please be conscious that this is part of our Safety Operations Plan which we are bound, by law, to uphold.

     Let’s keep our close community feeling alive by working together to keep everyone safe.

  • Drop-off/Pick-up Loop

    Parents, please be mindful of etiquette in our loop. Please be kind, respectful and helpful. Assume best intentions. Children are watching our behavior. Being gracious and courteous, even if it appears that someone else isn’t, is always what we hope adults will model for our children. The loop is at its busiest between 2:55 and 3:10. Waiting until 3:10 to come to loop will help with congestion.
