• DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP PROCEDURES

    To help facilitate a safe, efficient drop off/pick up experience, Sage Canyon has a cadre of adults that assist with the drop off/pick up procedures. Cars are greeted every morning by cheerful staff members who will assist children in exiting the car swiftly and safely to help get you on your way and allow the flow of traffic to progress. In the afternoon, staff members help load students into cars.

    Sage Canyon School and its families need to be good neighbors and respect the residents who live near the school. Please do not “cut through” neighborhood streets to reach the upper and lower loops, rather follow the designated routes outlined above. Additionally, please do not speed, block driveways, make U-turns or 3-point turns on the residential streets around the school.

     

    During afternoon pick-up, families are reminded that it is violation of Traffic Code 22400(a) for cars to stop in the roadway and impede the flow of traffic.  Following are some suggestions we can embrace as a community to limit unsafe conditions caused by school traffic, and also avoid parents receiving violations:

    • Park your vehicle in a designated parking space and walk up to school to pick up your children
    • Pull over and park your vehicle on Harvest Run Drive until dismissal begins and traffic begins to move in the lower bus loop
    • Encourage your children to be ready and waiting together, as a group, for you in the lower pick-up loop so that staff can load vehicles more efficiently
    • If you arrive before 2:30 PM and are able to secure a spot in the lower bus loop, please pull all the way forward so as many vehicles as possible can fit in the loop

     

    SAFETY PATROL

    Our student Safety Patrol provides a safe pedestrian crossing for students and families on Harvest Run Drive before and after school.  Please be respectful and follow their instruction.
