Pick-up & Drop-off

Student Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures Coordinated with Mater Dei Catholic High School.  The safety of our students is of the utmost importance.  Therefore, the following guidelines for pick-up and drop-off have been developed.  Please follow these guidelines at all times.

Student Drop-off

  • Parents must park at the Mater Dei Church parking lot.
  • Parents should walk their student to school past the DePaul center in the direction of the Guadalupe Center.
  • Parents arrive at the black wrought iron gate (Gate 1) and drop-off their student at the gate.
  • Student supervision will start at 8:00 am.  No student should be dropped off prior to this time.  Any student who needs to be dropped off earlier than 8:00 am must be checked in at Lima 4 for MDJDA’s before school care program as a part of ECEP (Extended Care Enrichment Program).
  • Parents may drop-off students at the roundabout starting at 8:05 am, but they may not park for any amount of time at the roundabout.  This is due to safety concerns.
  • Parents are expected to be a model of respect and dignity during interactions with school personnel tasked with enforcing these guidelines.

Student Pick-up

  • Parents must park at the Mater Dei Church parking lot.
  • Parents should walk to the front of the Guadalupe Center.
  • Parents can wait outside the Guadalupe Center starting at 3:10 pm, but no earlier.
  • Students will be dismissed from the classrooms at 3:15 pm Monday through Thursday and at 1:00 pm on Fridays. Please walk to your son’s or daughter’s classroom and pick him/ her directly from the classroom.
