FSES Car Rider Procedures



Morning Arrival to FSES

  • Car riders may only be dropped off and picked up within the designated car rider zone.
  • Morning student drop-off begins at 7:00 AM. Afternoon dismissal of car riders begins at 2:10 PM.
  • As the car approaches the drop-off location, students should unbuckle themselves, have their bookbag on, and place any materials being carried, in their hands.
  • Please move forward until directed to stop. Once stopped, please remember to unlock doors. In the morning, we typically unload three to four cars at a time.
  • Students MUST wait until FSES School Staff opens the car door in order to proceed from vehicles. Students should not get out of the car by themselves. This is for the safety of all students.
  • If possible, all students should be loaded and unloaded through passenger side doors- Curb Side.
  • Do not drive around or pass cars that are still unloading. Vehicles will wait until all children have exited their vehicle before proceeding to the exit. Like school bus loading and unloading zones, violators will have license plates turned over to the DCSS Police Department.
  • Vehicles NOT in line when the clock turns 7:40 AM will be directed to sign the child in through the front office.
  • Students coming in through the front office must be escorted into the building by a parent or guardian.

Afternoon Dismissal from FSES

  • The afternoon car rider line begins at 1:45 PM.
  • Afternoon dismissal of car riders begins at 2:10 PM.
  • Please do not use cell phones once the car pick-up line begins to move.
  • The school-issued car rider tag is required for pick-up. (Even if we know who you are. You must have a car rider tag to pick up a child.) If you do not have a tag, you will be directed to the front office to get one. Additional tags are $2.
  • A staff member is responsible for radioing your child's car rider number. Please wait until they have done so before moving on in the line.
  • Move all the way forward until directed to stop.
  • Vehicles should be placed in park.
  • Normally, three students are loaded into cars at a time.
  • Children will enter the car on the right-hand side.
  • Parents or Guardians should remain in the vehicle at all times.
  • Once the child is loaded, you may proceed to the exit.
  • If a child needs assistance with getting buckled in, your vehicle should move forward towards the exit. Do not assist while in the line.
  • Vehicles need to be in line by 2:30 PM. After 2:35 PM you will need to pick your child up from the front office. 
  • Students waiting after the car rider line ends will be placed in the After School Program and a fee will be assessed.

If you or the person who is picking up your child in the afternoon does not have the FSES 2023-2024 Car Rider Identification hangtag, they will have to pick up the child from the front office and have their ID available for our front office staff to check. This is for the safety of your child. Thank you for your understanding.

We thank you in advance for adhering to our rules as they all help keep your students safe around moving vehicles.
