Drop Off and Dismissal Information

*Click for the Drop Off and Dismissal Map for 2013-2014 NORMAL MORNING DROP-OFF PROCEDURE

During morning arrival, all cars drive through the front lane only or students/parents walk in and enter through designated morning arrival doors at the front or rear of the main hallway. Doors open daily at 7:15am beginning the second day of school.


For dismissal at 2:45pm, parents are asked to wait outside for students. Parents driving through the front or rear dismissal lanes should not exit their vehicles and should use name placards in vehicle windows (please advise other family members who may be picking up your child of this as well).

In addition, school property is considered part of the school zone. This is a hands-free mobile zone for anyone operating a motor vehicle. Per AISD policy and for the safety of our students, no pets are allowed on campus unless they are designated service animals.


Clayton students will remain in their classrooms.

Parents will be permitted to go straight to the hallways and classroom doors for pick up starting at the 2:45 bell.

Children involved in afterschool programs, those who ride AISD busses, or those who have special transportation (SPED) will be escorted by Clayton staff to the bus lane area at the side of the campus at 2:40.

At 2:45. the building will be open (front, rear, and side doors) for parent pick up without any required check in at the office at 2:45.

If a parent is picking up multiple children located in various areas in the building, they can request that the office call students down over the intercom to meet parents in the front office (starting at 2:45).

Parents can park in the front lane (sidewalk side only), in front of the school on the street, at the community center, and on side streets such as Sky Rock. Often some spaces in the front lane will open up after the first wave of cars has cleared out before 2:50. Sorry, no double parking or idling in the second lane. If no parking is available in front, then you will be required to drive through and find a different place to park. Hang in there.

We encourage you to work out carpools and possibly share neighbor pick up (especially if you have infants or toddlers), and because parking will be very limited to the front and side streets as well as the community center. This means that a neighbor can drive through the front and circle around or find a parking place while another person can go and retrieve children.

During this extreme rainy day dismissal, the back lane of the campus will be closed to all but emergency vehicle traffic, as we cannot have parents park and leave cars there. Please have your umbrellas and galoshes available for yourselves and your kiddos if needed. We appreciate your patience and support as we attempt to keep our Cardinals safe during arrival and dismissal each day.
