Curbside Pick Up System

CAIS’s curbside pick up system gives parents the option to pick up their lower or middle school child without having to find a parking spot or search inside the school. There are three times available for this service: 3:00 p.m. (free of charge), 3:30 p.m., or 4:00 p.m. If a student is not registered for any extended day services or enrichment classes, he or she will be brought to Hickory Street for curbside pick up.  

The extended day staff or classroom teacher will bring students to the Hickory Street curb and supervise them as parents pick up their children. Any student who is not signed up for extended day services or enrichment classes and is not picked up between the 3:00 to 3:15 time frame will be taken to the extended day study hall room. Families will be charged the daily rate. All rates can be found on the Rates and Fees page.

Sibling Pick Up  

If you have a child in Kindergarten through fifth grade who should go home at 3:30 p.m. with a Pre-K or middle school student, your family qualifies for this complimentary service. All families interested in sibling pick up must register for this service even though it is free of charge. 

The sibling whose regular school day ends first will be brought to a dedicated sibling pick up room after school by the student’s classroom teacher or extended day staff. The student can read quietly or work on homework until his or her sibling is finished with their school day. Once the second sibling is dismissed from school, an extended day staff member will bring all siblings to Hickory Street for curbside pick up.
