Parking

Queen of the Rosary School adheres to a strict safety program for parents to follow while in the process of dropping off and picking up their children. Our motto is “Safety above all else”. Parents are expected to do their part in complying with our motto by following these safety procedures.

Morning Drop Off

In the morning, you may bring your children to school in two ways (1) Drop Offs or (2) by Parking. Entrance to Queen of the Rosary premises in the AM is permitted from Rev.Morrison Blvd. only. DO NOT enter the premises from Elk Grove Blvd.

Drop Offs

If you are dropping off your children, please follow these procedures:

1. Cars must be in a single file for drop offs. Follow the lane designations painted on the parking lot. All cars must drive between the two rows of safety cones. Pull up to the front of the two rows of safety cones. This allows for about 4 to 5 vehicles to pull up, stop and drop off children simultaneously. Please have your children prepared to exit the vehicle upon your stopping. Driver DOES NOT exit the vehicle. If you need to assist your children, please park your vehicle in the designated parking areas and DO NOT lineup in the drop off lane. After dropping off your children, do not exit the car line before the car in front of you has left. Please follow the vehicle in front of you and do not linger in the drop off line.

2. All students must (A) exit the vehicle from the passenger side of the vehicle only at the school-side of the cones and (B) enter school from the lower wing doors (Door #6).

3. At the end of the two rows of safety cones, make a 180° turn and exit to Rev. Morrison Blvd. ONLY to exit the school premises. No exit to Elk Grove Blvd. is permitted for drop off drivers.

4. You may also drop off your child by parking on Victoria and having the crossing guard assist your child across Elk Grove Blvd.

The crossing guard goes on duty at 7:45 a.m.

5. Due to the busses, parents dropping off students in front of the school is prohibited.

Cars will be pulling into and backing out of parking spaces in the parking area, and thus YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for your child’s safety before they enter school.
