SAFETY VALET

Our morning drop-off safety valet begins this week. Please support us by following the following procedures.


  • Grade 1-5 students may be dropped off at the grade level’s designated safety valet lane. The Las Palmas A safety valet is for grade 3-5 students. The June Street B safety valet is for grade 1 and 2 students. There is no safety valet for PAL, UTK CC, UTK, and K students.

  • Whenever possible, students should exit the car curbside.

  • Do not enter the driveway if you intend to park and walk your child into school.

  • Please follow the directions of the drop-off volunteers in the school drive-through lanes. Please be sure to continually pull forward and drop off passengers in the designated drop off area. Courtesy towards volunteers is expected at all times. Please treat them with respect and provide a good example for your child.

  • Safety valet staff and volunteers are limited to opening doors. Should a child need help to get out of their car seat, the child’s parent will need to provide that assistance.

  • Whenever possible, please have all your child's belongings in the car, not the trunk. DO NOT use this time to give your child lunch money, fix hair, put on coats...etc. Please have all of this done before entering the car lane each morning.

  • Put your car in park when your child is exiting.

  • After exiting their vehicle, the student should proceed to enter campus through their designated entrance.

  • Obey all traffic laws and use extreme caution while using the drop-off lanes, especially when exiting and merging.

  • Families who are not using our safety valet should not park their car in our drop-off lanes. Please refer to the traffic map in our handbook or website.

We rely on our parents to help with morning drop-off. Two classrooms will be assigned to safety valet duty for two consecutive weeks. The safety valet duty schedule as well as a link to sign up and safety valet duties guidelines can be found below or online at https://www.thirdstreetschool.com/traffic. Volunteers may also support our safety valet on weeks other than their assigned week.
