Arrival - Drop Off

    The car-rider area is located in the front of our building.  Drivers must enter campus at the light on Queens Creek Road and make the first left turn and head towards the four-way stop.  At the stop sign, continue forward and follow the road in front of QCE and move towards the circle in front of Swansboro High School. Go around the circle at the high school and then enter the QCE campus car rider line.  Do not turn left into the car rider circle.  All drivers must go around the circle at the high school.  There are signs to guide you to the drop off circle.  A video and graphic of the process are attached. 

    An adult is on duty from 8:00-8:30 a.m. to assist with the unloading of students.  Please stay in your car and allow your child to enter the building under the supervision of the adult on duty.  If you have items to deliver to the classroom, please park in the parking lot and take the items to the office.  We will be happy to deliver them for you. 

    Any student arriving after 8:30 a.m. will need to be escorted to the office by an adult. The student will be counted as tardy for that day.


    Dismissal - Pick Up

    Please download the School Dismissal Manager App for all students.  This is the platform that we use for communication regarding dismissal.  

    At the end of the day, students are dismissed from the car rider area.  Parents will follow the same driving procedures as followed for morning drop off.  Students are required to remain in the designated area until their ride arrives.  Dismissal for car rider students begins at 3:20 p.m. in the circle area.  Staff members will be on duty to assist students who are being picked up and will supervise each child to his/her car.  Adults who are picking up a student should remain in their vehicles at all times.  All students are required to be picked up by 3:40 p.m. each day.  If a student remains after this time, they will be taken to the office.

    For the safety of your child as well as other children and teachers, please refrain from talking on your cell phone while you are in the line.
