Parent Pick Up / Drop Off
Parking is provided in the front of the building. Visitor and handicapped parking are closest to the front entrance. We ask that all visitors enter through the front doors and check in at the office except during dismissal. Please do not park in the bus slots.
There is NO PARKING in the bus slots during dismissal. It is a danger to our students to have cars pulling in/out of the visitor spaces during dismissal.
No Parking during the following times:
- Full day - 3:45 - 4:15 PM
- Wednesday Release - 2:45 - 3:15 PM
- Early Release - 12:45 - 1:20 PM
NOTE: For the safety and security of all Harvest Ridge students, all changes in a student’s dismissal must be made by 2:00 pm the day of the change.
If a parent wishes for their child to walk, we must have a written permission form completed each year and on file in the office. Permission forms can be obtained by contacting the office. We will provide a staff member to check in students in the lobby at dismissal and staff will escort them to the crosswalk. Parents can meet their students at the crosswalk or students will be responsible for walking the remainder of the way home.
Bus route information will be sent out at the beginning of the year as well as being available in your parent portal account.
Students are to ride the bus to which they have been assigned. It is against District policy for a student to ride a bus that is not their assigned bus except in case of an emergency. Any requests for an exception must go through the office. Boy Scout and Girl Scout meetings, children going over to a friend’s house after school, and practices for sports are NOT considered emergencies.
If parents have a concern regarding an incident on a bus they should call the bus garage at (636) 851-6220 or the school office (636) 851-5100. They should not board the bus to talk with the driver. It is a class A misdemeanor to board a school bus without permission.
It is important that all children ride the bus to school on the first day of school. Students should make note of their bus slot and parking location to avoid confusion in loading for their return home.
Please see the District Student Code of Conduct for the guidelines on riding the school bus. Please read through the bus rules with your child. Remember that students who cannot obey these rules forfeit the privilege of transportation. Visit the District Transportation webpage for more information and to view bus guidelines.
