Not Taking the Bus? Drop Off and Pick Up 101

Drop Off

  • You may begin dropping your children off at 7:40am.  They will wait by the pencils until the bell rings at 7:45am.  A child is tardy if they arrive after the 7:55am bell and will need to stop in the office to sign in and get a pass.

  • Please pull all the way to the end.  This is especially important when it is raining or cold because more people tend to drop off their children on these days.  This prevents a long backup on Owensville Rd and makes the drop off line run smoothly.

  • If you need to get out for any reason with your child, please park in the parking lot and walk your child across to the sidewalk.

**Around 7:50 the buses will leave.  Please stop and let all the buses leave before continuing on your way.  The bus drivers need to start their middle/high school pick up routes so letting them exit quickly is important.

  • Please be careful leaving Meriwether especially when there is a backup on Owensville Road.  While most cars do turn into Meriwether, several cars are “through” cars and do not stop for exiting traffic.


Pick Up

Pick up is at 2:30pm.  There are two options for pickup.  With both options, a child must have a note to be picked up unless a permanent note is on file.  If pickup is a last minute change or after a performance of some kind, please sign your child out in the office.  The earlier notice the better because this keeps the buses running on time.

  • Option 1: Park in the parking lot and walk to the entrance.  A teacher will dismiss your child when she sees you.
  • Option 2: Pull around the circle and wait in your car.  A teacher will send your child to you when she sees you.  Please do not leave your car if you are on the circle because this causes congestion.

** The buses will exit around 2:40pm.  Please let all the buses exit before continuing on your way.  The bus drivers need to get to the middle school/high school.  Thank you!
