After School Front Lot "Kiss and Go" Pick Up

The front lot "Kiss and Go" car pick up is ideal for all students.  I would like to share some suggestions for "Kiss and Go" after school car pick up in our front parking lot.  

  • Approach the pick up lanes heading eastbound on Lone Cactus and make a right turn into the front parking lot. 
  • Prior to 3:10 the right lane is reserved for kindergarten only car pick up. The left lane is reserved for Grades K-6 pick up waiting until it is filled up. The left lane is also the entrance to our parking lot. Please do not block the entrance into the parking lot.
  • Kindergarten only car pick up begins between 3:00 and 3:10 in the right lane.  Please have your kindergartner prepared to load on the passenger side of your car.  
  • After kinder pickup is complete Grades 1-6 pickup, waiting in the left lane, will shift over to the right lane. 
  • This begins right lane only kiss and go pick up for all grades.
  • A reminder that the all grades pick up line begins to move after dismissal at 3:15 p.m.
We appreciate your patience and kindness when dropping off and picking up your children.

INSIDER TIP:  Arrive at Fireside right AFTER 3:25.  You will find very limited wait times, if any.
