  • Non-Transportation students who choose to walk to school must not arrive before 8:35 AM. 

  • Non-Transportation students who choose to walk must use the designated crosswalks that are supervised by staff once they enter the school driveway.

Parent Pick-Up

Parents choosing to pick up their children may do so at the gym entrance in the front of the school. Doors will open at 3:15 daily and 1:30 during early dismissal days. Please remember to send in a note informing the office that your child will be picked up. If you forget to send in a note, please call the school NO LATER than 3:00.


  • Parents of non-transportation students who wish to pick up their child must sign their child out in the gym if they want to park in the school parking lot.

  • Students will not be permitted to walk through the parking lot to look for their parents due to the volume of cars and buses at that time.


Non-Transportation Student Pick-Up

Parents of non-transportation students may pick up their child after school in the “designated area” only.  Those parents who do not wish to use the “designated area” must follow the “Parent Pick-Up” procedures above. 


“Designated Area Procedures”

  • Arrival: Park (in parking spaces) and Walk OR Drop and Go

  • Dismissal Pick up: Park in parking spaces OR temporarily park a curb opposite buses

  • Please DO NOT park on curb directly in front of school (gymnasium)

  • Non-Transportation students will be dismissed with their homerooms and proceed to the “designated area” to meet their parents.  Students must remain on the sidewalk until their parents arrive and will not be able to walk through the parking lot.

Non-Transportation Students Who Choose to Walk

Students will be dismissed from school with their homerooms and escorted by staff to the sidewalk along the bus loop.  Students will then be met by support staff at the end of the bus loop and crossed onto the sidewalk along the Absegami High School sports fields. Students are expected to act appropriately and follow school rules on the way to and from school.
