Hug and Go (2014 Drop-Off Procedure)

McKinley Elementary School would like your support in addressing the safety problems and traffic congestion around the school. To increase the safety of our students please follow these guidelines when dropping off or picking up students:
  • The cut out areas along 89th street and 90th street are a “Hug & Go” zone.   They are for ACTIVE loading and unloading ONLY. 
    • Using the “Hug and Go”- 
      • Parents must remain in their vehicle at all times.
      • Assistants (in orange vests) will be available to help students out of cars on 89th street cut out only.  If your child requires additional assistance getting out of car (seat belt, heavy instrument, etc), please use this cut out.
  • Drive clockwise around the school during drop-off (8-8:20am) and pick-up times (3-3:30pm except Wednesday 2-2:30pm). 
  • Please avoid parking on streets adjacent to school.  See map for “preferred” parking locations.  
  • Always yield to children and adults in the crosswalk. 
  • Please do not walk your child across the street into oncoming traffic. WE ASK THAT YOU USE THE DESIGNATED CROSSWALKS! 
  • Please, No cell phone use or texting in school zones!
  • Be Kind and Respectful to other students, other drivers and our neighbors.
