Arriving at APEX and Where to Park
Arriving at APEX
When you arrive at APEX in the morning to drop off, you may enter either from Lefthand Circle or from Sunset Street. Please park in the areas designated as Family Parking. K2 families should park in areas P-1 and P-2. Area P-5 is for short term parking (drop off/pick up) only. For the safety of our students, we ask that you pull into a parking spot. We do not have a drive line or “hug and go” drop off.
Parents will drop off students in grades 3-12 at the front entrance at 8:30 am. Students will be greeted at the door by an APEX staff member, will drop off their lunches and family bin in the commons and go directly to class. Parents will drop off students in grades K-2 at the east entrance at 8:40 am and will be greeted outside by a K2 para and walked directly to their classroom by an APEX staff member. Parents do not need to enter the building to drop off students. During inclement weather days, please wait in your car with your student until doors are opened.
Late Arrival: Parents should contact the front desk if their student will be arriving more than 15 minutes late. Upon arrival, students should come to the front entrance and will be admitted to the building and to their classes through the administration office. Students may not be permitted to join their 1st period class if they arrive more than 10 minutes late to minimize disruptions to the class. Parents may be asked to supervise their students while they wait.
Dismissal: At the end of the day, students in grades 3-12 will exit the building through the front entrance and can be picked up at 3:15 pm. Students in grades K-2 will exit the building through the east entrance and can be picked up at 3:05. Parents do not need to enter the building to pick up students. Parents are requested to pick up their students within 5 minutes of dismissal time. If someone other than the parent or guardian will be picking the student up, please notify the front desk in advance to have this person added to the student’s emergency pick-up list. If parents need to bring a student late or pick a student up early, we request that parents do so at the break between classes whenever possible (periods 1-3 end on the half-hour, periods 5-7 end on the quarter-hour). Because we have only one hour per week per class with our students, we request that families try to schedule vacations, appointments, or other activities on days outside of their family’s scheduled day at APEX. To pick up your students early, please come to the main entrance and call the front desk on the A-phone for entry.
