    The pick-up area for all car riders is in front of Harrison Middle School. The drivers arrive at the south entrance that is nearest the Prairie, continue down Burls Way to the Cash Center and turn right at the stop sign. Drive through the Cash Center parking lot and circle back to the front of the Middle School by using the road between the Middle School and the High School.

     

    The single line of cars will start at the Trolley sign in front of Harrison Middle School near the end of the sidewalk and loop around to the Cash Center parking lot if necessary. Please do not start lining up before 2:45 p.m.  Drivers should never pass the car in front of them and must remain in the car once stopped in the pick-up line. The line will be long, but 12 cars can be loaded at a time.

     

    Students in grades 5-8 will exit the front doors to be picked up at 3:10 p.m. If the rider is late, the driver will be asked to pull over to the side until the rider arrives.

    Back Car Rider

    “Back Car Rider” is at the back of the school from 3:08-3:20 for grades 5-8.  The driver must park in the back parking lot and walk across the road, get their rider and walk them back to their car.  Riders will not be allowed to cross the road by themselves. After 3:20, riders will be sent to the front of the school to the car rider pick-up.
