Pickup and Drop-Off Procedure

We want to ensure everyone comes and goes from school safely. Here are a few reminders for families who drive their children to school.

  1. Drive slowly near the school.
  2. If you are dropping off or picking up your child at the curbside area (green on the map), use the designated lane.
  3. Staff will help your child with their backpack, please do not get out of your car.
  4. If you park in the temporary parking area (purple on the map), always cross with the help of the crossing guard.
  5. Respect the instructions of the crossing guards.
  6. Look left-right-left before crossing any street not controlled by a crossing guard.
  7. School parking lots are reserved for Centennial staff. Please do not park or idle in the school parking lot.
  8. Be patient.

Try a "Park and Walk" option!

To avoid the congestion and have a few more moments with your child, try parking a couple of blocks away from Centennial (blue on the map) and walking together the rest of the way. A little bit of exercise and fresh air can help students have a positive day and prepare their brains for the classroom or homework.
