Kiss and Go Procedures 2022-2023

  • Vehicles enter “Kiss & Go” from Renton Road ONLY (NOT Route 302).
  • IMPORTANT: In order to line-up in the “Kiss & Go” lane, ALL students MUST be able to exit from the RIGHT side of the vehicle INDEPENDENTLY. Adults CAN NOT get out of the car to assist their child if they are lined-up in the “Kiss & Go” lane. This SIGNIFICANTLY stalls the arrival process.
  • If your child requires time and assistance to exit or enter the car, park your car in the lot and escort your child to the sidewalk median using the
    crosswalk. Staff will supervise children as they walk down the sidewalk to
    their designated entrance.
  • Staff members will direct several cars to pull all the way up to the beginning
    of the sidewalk/median (facing Route 302). We can safely unload
    approximately 10-15 cars at a time if everyone follows these directions.
  • WAIT for the staff member to give a SIGNAL for your child to exit on the
    RIGHT side of the vehicle. A staff member will open the door for your child if
  • After the first line of 10-15 cars leave, vehicles will be directed to pull all the
    way up to where the median begins, and repeat the same procedure.
  • Due to the high volume of traffic, please EXIT the parking lot SAFELY as soon
    as possible.
  • At 9:05, “Kiss & Go” staff supervision officially ENDS and school officially
    BEGINS. If you arrive after 9:05, you MUST park your car and escort your child
    to the main entrance. There, you will sign him/her in at the greeter’s window,
    and your child will receive a pass to go to class.
