PICKUP AND DROP OFF POLICY

Attention SST Parents and Guardians,
SST administration is aware of the issues occurring during the pick-up/drop-off times. We have deduced that the problems stem from a lack of adherence to the pick-up/drop-off procedures outlined in a diagram at orientation. SST asks that all parents please follow the pick-up/drop-off arrangement outlined in the diagram distributed at student orientation in order to provide a more rapid and safe pick-up/drop-off for all SST stakeholders
Drop off/Pick up Plan

Parents, please do not park or wait for your children at the IBC Bank or behind the school near the neighboring apartments. These parking lots do not belong to School of Science and Technology and your car may be towed if you park in either of those areas or any parking lot not owned by SST. We have been informed that parking or waiting in those areas is also considered trespassing and may result in a fine.

When picking up students, please keep in mind that the right lane closer to the school is for waiting parents. The outer lane closer to Van Diver is for parents that already have their child that are exiting. Please do not block the outer left lane in order that parents may pull into that lane immediately after their child is safely in the car. This will ensure a speedy pick-up/drop-off process for all.

Again, please do not park in the IBC bank parking lot or behind SST facing the apartment complex. Those areas are not SST property and parking in those areas is considered trespassing and may result in a fine. Please do not stop on the 410 access road to pick up students and do not turn left on N. Vandiver as these actions are against traffic laws due to being unsafe. The safety of our students, parents, staff, and community is our primary concern. Please follow the pick-up/ drop off diagram that was distributed at Student Orientation. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
