3. Student safety is of the utmost priority at Sands. The following car line procedures are to ensure the safety of all students and staff members:
       * (3-6) students and their siblings are to be dropped off at the side (3-6) entrance. They should exit the car only when a staff member opens the door.
       * (6-9) and (9-12) students are to be dropped off in the front circle. Students may exit the car with the assistance of a staff member of when a car has safely stopped in the front circle.
       * Please wait patiently for the cars in front of you to load/unload passengers and do not pull around to exit. Staff members will direct traffic, should there be a delay, and cars will be safely routed around a stopped car.
We appreciate your understanding and patience.
