  1. Procedures for drop-off and pick-up:
    1. While we are often fortunate to have assistance from the RPPD, all parents are responsible for knowing and following the correct procedures for everyday usage.  The area outside of the gate and marked in yellow is for drop off and pick up ONLY.  This means your child is getting out of the car and you are pulling away.  You should pull into the line, and pull all the way up to the front.  You may not remain at the curb once your child has exited the car.  This helps maintain the safety and efficiency of our arrivals and departures.
