Child Drop-Off Procedures

To all parents and guardians who drop their children off in the morning:

  • Do not double-park or drop off on 6th Avenue.  6th Avenue is for bus drop-off only.
  • Please remember to drop your children off on 7th Avenue. on the far side of the
    yard, closer to California Street, to allow room for other cars to
    fill in behind you. 
  • Put on your emergency flashers and pull forward to the drop-off sign.
  • Do not get out of your car unless the volunteer parents are not there.
  • Do not park across the street and jay-walk your kids across! This is both dangerous and illegal!

Thank you! Our kids’ safety is first and foremost.

A Peabody parent started the curbside drop-off program several years ago and we continue to be the beneficiaries of that initiative.  This will be my 7th year at Peabody and each of those years I've witnessed parents (and staff) step forward to make innovative changes at our school.

The intent of this program was to make the morning drop off safer for kids and more convenient for parents. The service has been very successful but it needs parents to make it work.  We need parents to assist with this 100% volunteer endeavor
