Carpool

St. Joseph has a well-defined carpool policy, designed for optimal safety and efficiency. 

 

MORNING DROP-OFF: 

To facilitate morning carpool, the 5th Grade Safety Patrol helps students exit their vehicles, collect their belongings and enter the building. 

There is just one morning drop-off location: the School Garden Entrance/ (Spring Valley parking lot under the school wing awning).

This year, you may drop off your child at 7:15 am for a small fee of $10 per month (unlimited early drop-off) ($5.00/month for each additional child) billed through FACTS. 

Regular drop-off is from 7:30am until 8:00am.

After 8:00 am, you MUST park and walk your child(ren) into the office. Please use the Spring Valley parking lot, and enter the building at our main school entrance (between the school building and the church building).

Please see the map below that illustrates our morning drop off procedure.

AFTERNOON PICK-UP:

There is one pick up location in the Spring Valley large school parking lot.
