Carline Schedule 2022-23

Carline is a team effort.

We have a plan to make sure students arrive safely and parents can get in and out as expeditiously as possible. 

Updated 8.31.22

How You Can Help

  • Observing the carline schedule as closely as possible.
  • Loading your child as quickly and safely as possible. 
  • Moving into the lot and off Paradise Drive as safely and respectfully as possible.
  • Reading and sharing the following information with all approved adults who partner with you to drop-off and pick-up your student(s).
  • Treating the staff with kindness and understanding.

Important Details

  • We will use the flag system in the morning drop off and the afternoon pick up. If you have children in multiple classes, please come at the earlier arrival time and use the appropriate flag.
    • Green indicates Toddler.
    • Blue indicates Mourning Dove and Quail.
    • Red indicates Pelican and Great Blue Heron.
    • Orange indicates Lower Elementary. 
    • Purple indicates Upper Elementary. 
  • Tiburon Families: If the lot is full please pull into Robin Drive and wait for the flagger to wave you in safely. Please go up to the top of Robin Drive to turn around.
  • Toddler Lane: Please keep the third lane (by the fence of the Big Field) open for Toddler families until 8:05 am. The Junior High Van will join this line along with Primary students of Elementary siblings.
