Drop off and Pick up
Parking Lot Safety
Please cooperate with our hard-working safety patrol. They go on duty at 8:30 a.m. and leave duty at 8:45 a.m. They are also on duty from 3:20 to 3:35 p.m. They help students safely cross the streets.
Please use designated cross walks and do not cross NE Cedar Park Crescent in the area where there is no cross walk.For vehicles, please stop well before the crosswalk and stay stopped until the crosswalk is no longer occupied.If Safety Patrol is present, please do not enter the crosswalk until they have given the go ahead.
You may not turn left or right through an occupied crosswalk. Do not overtake or pass a car that is stopped in front of a crosswalk, even if it is signaling that it is turning right. When you're turning, don't wait inside the crosswalk.
At the Drop off in front of school stay in right lane. Left lane is for use of parking spot or exiting the parking lot. Students must let out on the right side of the cars when unloading and loading to avoid on-coming traffic. All cars must have a driver present in the loading area. This year we have added another drop off and pick up area on NE 94th Way. Please make sure to pull all the way forward before unloading and loading.
Exiting the Parking Lot
When exiting the main parking lot, you will find a right turn only sign. This sign helps assure a smooth flow of traffic out of the parking lot. Too often our drivers either turn left or go straight. This creates confusion, slows down the loading process, and may ultimately cause an accident. PLEASE turn right as directed by the traffic sign.
Park and Ride area
We strongly suggest that students are either dropped off in the designated main parking lot or walk to school. We have seen many drivers who choose to drop off their children in the Park and Ride. As it is not on school property, we do not supervise how cars are loaded and unloaded.
Bus Zone (south of the school)
Do not park in the bus zone at the south end of the school between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Too often people park in this area marked with yellow curbs. Buses have been blocked from being able to pass. Please park in the designated parking areas only.
If your child will be absent from school, a parent/guardian needs to call the school attendance recorder (425-936-2651) before 8:40 a.m. The line is open 24 hours a day. You can also e-mail RPattendance@lwsd.org.
Students should come to school no earlier than 8:10 am as there is no supervision until this time. Students go directly to their outside classroom line and enter the classroom at the first bell (8:25 a.m.). If a child arrives after 8:30 a.m., the child is considered tardy. Between 8:25-8:35, students should report directly to class and teacher will take attendance. If a student arrives after 8:35, parents need to bring the student to the school office to fill out an Admit Slip for admittance to class. Students are marked tardy if they arrive after 8:30 a.m. Students are to remain on the school grounds during the school day.
It is important that students be on time. It can be disruptive to the educational process to have students arrive late. There are, however, instances when students will be excused upon arriving late to school (i.e. a doctors or dentist appointment). If your child is going to be late to school, a parent or guardian needs to call the attendance recorder (425-936-2651) before 8:40 a.m.
School ends at 3:10 p.m. Students not picked up by 3:15 p.m. will come to the office to wait for their parent to pick them up as there is no outside supervision at this time. PLEASE NOTE: The office closes at 3:50 p.m.
