Arrival & Dismissal Procedures
Parents may drop off students beginning at 8:10 - 8:30 a.m. each day at either the north or south entrance of the school. Parents may park on Washington Ave. or at Steele High School and walk their child to either entrance. Parents choosing to use the drop off zone in the North parking lot need to follow the directions of the aides on duty. Students need to be able to exit the car on the passenger side only under their own power. We ask that parents do not get out of their car during drop off for safety reasons. We ask that you please refrain from using cell phones during these times. During mid-day arrival, parents may park on Washington Ave., Steele High School, or in any available parking spot in the North parking lot. The drop off zone will be available to use from 12:35 - 12:45 p.m. if you choose to remain in your vehicle.  The south entrance to the school is reserved for buses only throughout the day.  
Bus Transportation Information For Bus & Car Riders

If you choose to transport your child by car and give up your seat on the bus you need to complete a "Transportation Change Form" available at the school or the Transportation Office prior to the start of school. Please call the school office at 988-8670 or the Transportation Office at 988-2633 with any questions. Bus schedules will appear in the Amherst News Times one week prior to the start of school.
