In order for the Catoctin staff to ensure a safe environment for all children, the following drop-off and pick-up procedures be followed by all familes. These procedures will be strictly adhered to each day. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our children safe!
All students who go through the car-line at dismissal must have a Car-Line Form on file in the school office. Families who complete the form will be issued 2 Car-Line Passes. Passes must be displayed on the dashboard of your vehicle in order for students to be released through the car line. If a Car-Line Pass is not displayed, families will be required to park and complete the sign-out log in the main office.
Drivers are expected to follow the signs located in the pick-up areas and to remain in vehicles in the car-line during dismissal.
7:30 a.m. – 7:48 a.m. Parents drop-off students at the designated Kiss-&-Ride area.
After 7:48 a.m. Parents arriving after 7:48 a.m. must park and escort students to the main office. After 7:50 a.m. students must be signed in by a parent.
2:35 p.m. – 2:40 p.m. Car-riders are dismissed to Pod 3. Parents display Car-Line Pass on the dashboard and remain in vehicles in the designated car-line.
Please follow the signs, making a single-file line. The car-line will typically finish in 5-7 minutes or less.
