Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures

posted Sep 5, 2017, 4:17 PM by Kelli Knowles

For safety and efficiency, parents are asked to observe the following drop off/pick up locations at Kootenai Elementary:


BEFORE SCHOOL~ STUDENT DROP OFF: Vehicles should pull through the loop on SPRAGUE STREET and drop off students at the main entrance to the school. Please use the parking lot located on 2ND STREET, north of the front entrance, should you need to accompany your child inside. The front parking spaces will be blocked off during morning drop off for the safety of our students.  To avoid driving over sprinkler heads, please DO NOT PARK on the grass strip in the front of the school at any time.



AFTER SCHOOL~ STUDENT PICK UP:  ** No students will be picked up by cars or parents at the front entrance of the building on Sprague Street***


  • KINDERGARTEN AND 1ST GRADE STUDENTS (+older siblings): Use HUMBIRD STREET, turn right onto 2ND STREET, and use the North parking lot to park. Then walk to the North Exit of the school to retrieve your students from the teachers.


  • 2ND-6TH GRADE STUDENTS: Please utilize the pick-up located on Hope Street. Do not exit your vehicle- please drive up and the teachers will send your child to your car when you enter the loop.


  • Any child walking home will exit the building through the North exit (at the end of the 1st grade hallway) and then continue on the sidewalks to the appropriate crosswalks to head home.


  • Any child riding a bike will exit through the front entrance on Sprague Street to retrieve their bike from the bike rack and head home.


  • Students who ride the bus will exit the south end of the building and proceed to the bus loop on Sprague Street by the playground to board his or her bus.
