The safety of our students depends on all drivers following these procedures. All cars enter the yard using the Mayerling gate driveway entrance. Please note that this beginning part of the traffic pattern will be the same for morning arrival, afternoon dismissal, and rainy day carlines. We are required by the LAPD to have a published carline route and to require all parents & guardians to use it. Parents and students may not use the Mayerling gate to walk onto the yard.​

All cars arriving for morning drop-off or afternoon pick-up should join the carline on Shoshone, even if approaching from Rinaldi or Mayerling. Proceed past the four-way stop and head north on Shoshone to the turn-around behind the church. Use that to join the south-heading carline. If you arrive for dismissal early, please be careful not to block traffic by double parking. Line up behind and parked cars. Once the carline begins moving, then you can move forward.

  • MORNING CARLINE DROP-OFF (7:30-7:55 AM): Enter through the Mayerling driveway. There will be parking on your right. You may park and walk your child to their class' designated waiting area. You may also pull up alongside the cone line and slow your child to exit your vehicle as if at a curb. Cars will exit the school grounds using the Shoshone gates, making a right turn only. **The last 5 to 10 minutes before school starts are the busiest moments of morning drop-off.
  • AFTERNOON CARLINE PICK-UP (M-TH 3:00-3:20 PM, FRI 1:30-1:50 PM): The Mayerling gate will open at 3pm Monday-Thursday and at 1:30pm on Fridays. Please park in the spaces to your right and walk towards your child's classroom (grades TK through 5th). Middle school students (6th-8th) will be outside near the parish hall. When returning to your car, please ensure that your child(ren) remains by your side. Cars will exit the school ground using the Shoshone gates, making a right turn only. **Please keep in mind that the first 5 to 7 minutes of the afternoon pick-up are the busiest.​

Students will be released only to those individuals who are listed on the emergency card. 
Students walking home must be in Grades 6-8 or at least 12 years of age, have parent authorization on file and must sign out with a designated administrative staff member.
Parents are to send a signed written notice in ink or email a day prior or the morning of if there is a change in the child’s regular carpool/pick up to the homeroom teacher or office.
Students may NOT attend or watch games without a parent/guardian. This includes siblings of athletes. Unsupervised students will be signed into Knights Club After School Daycare for safety reasons.​​

Children who arrive at school before 7:30 a.m. or remain at school 20 minutes after dismissal (who are not under supervision of an adult) are required to sign in with Knights Club staff for after school care. The parents/guardians will be charged accordingly. Mandatory sign-in procedures are explained to all students and parents and adherence to the school policy in this matter is critical to the safety and welfare of all students.
