School Day Info » Carpool


Please use the upmost caution when participating in drop off/pick up. Pay attention and follow these rules:
  • ABSOLUTELY NO cell phones, tablets, or electronic devices of any kind, including Bluetooth or other hands-free devices, may be used by drivers in the student loading and unloading zone(s).
  • To ensure the safety of all, a vehicle may not exceed 10 mph on school property at any time for any reason.
  • Each family will be issued a carpool tag with their family number.
  • Do not block crosswalks, driveways, cross streets, or fire lanes at any time.
  • No parking is allowed in staging areas 30 minutes before pick-up time.
  • Line up single file in student loading zones.
  • Respectfully follow directions of staff members or volunteers assisting with dropoff/pick-up.
  • Pull your car as far forward as possible. Do not stop in front of the main entrance if there is more room in front of your car.
  • Do not attempt to pass the car in front of you at any time during drop-off/pick-up.
  • Follow the car in front of you at all times.
  • Prepare your child(ren) for exiting the vehicle. When you stop in the drop-off zone, students should be able to immediately exit the vehicle.
  • Students should only exit/enter your vehicle on the right side. Never allow them to exit on the left. Never allow them to walk between vehicles.
  • Do not get out of your vehicle to assist children. AVA expects students to exit vehicles unassisted, unless there are extenuating circumstances (a student on crutches, for example). Attendants will be available to help students who need assistance.
  • Release your child(ren) after you have safely stopped wherever you are in the drop-off zone. Do not wait to be in front of the main entrance.
  • Please be patient and Respectful!
