If you arrive before the gate opens, please pull into the parking lot and park. Do not block the turn lane on 16th street or the entrance to DVA. We have many schools in the area, and safety for all is our primary concern. If you choose to arrive early and park, you must get out of your car and walk in at dismissal to retrieve your child/children. There is no entrance to the Car Rider Pro queue from the parking lot.

If you use the queue to pick up your child, please have your Car Rider Pro tag visible so the digital card reader can scan it.

We appreciate it when parents demonstrate good character during drop off, pick up, and while on campus.
