Circle Drive PM Procedures

What are we changing?

Clarke staff will no longer be crossing students to cars parked across the street. This will include all cars parked across the grassy section and cars on the north side of the street in front of the stairs.  It has become too dangerous with vehicles pulling through. Families wishing to park and walk up to get their students may continue to do so as long as parking does not block traffic flow.

What is the best way to pick up your child at circle drive?

Clarke staff will continue to assist with students getting into vehicles (2 at a time) as they pull up to the loading zone in circle drive.

Is there another option for picking up students?

On the west side of the school, students can be picked up after the bus traffic leaves by pulling along the sidewalk. There are no teachers helping students get into vehicles on this side.

We thank all of you for remaining outside while you are waiting so that the front entry is clear for traffic flow.

Home Sporting Event Expectations



We encourage our elementary students to attend and support our extra-curricular events. It's important that they begin to understand all the different opportunities there are as they get older.

We host many home events during the winter season and want to ensure the safety of everyone.  The school district encourages all children to stay in the bleachers during the event.  These events are intended for the opportunity to support our Clarke Indians. 

To keep all spectators safe, we want to make sure that students are walking to and from areas within the buildings. When students are running around, their safety and others are in jeopardy.

Let's go to games and cheer on our teams!!!

Information about Weather Impacting School

Please sign up for the texting/email service found within our school website to get information about school closings, late starts, or early outs.

When you sign up for this FREE service, you will find out as soon as the decision has been made.  Calling the school does not speed up the informational process and actually slows it down. 

Thanks for being Proactive and Thinking with the End in Mind!!

Student Drop Off Zones

We need students to be dropped off either on the west or north side of the school in the mornings.  The south side is where our buses drop off students.  This is for the safety of everyone.

After school we use both the south and west sides to pick up students with our buses.  The north circle drive area is to be used to pick up students.  After the buses leave on the west side, parents can use that side to pick up children.  Please do not park on the south side and wait for the buses to leave. 

Thanks for being Proactive and
Thinking with the End in Mind!!
