Drop-off and Pick-up Information

Car Riders: All car riding students entering and leaving Berne Union Schools during normal arrival and dismissal times should use the car rider loop. Drivers are asked to follow the traffic pattern and the directives of the staff. Cars will enter the south parking lot via the alley, which should be accessed from 2nd Street. Drivers will be waiting in the alley, then come across Fifth Street, and into the loading zone of the south parking lot. The arrival/dismissal card placard should be in the passenger window of your car. A staff member will direct you to a numbered loading station. No students are to be dropped off or picked up on Main Street. Please see the diagram to better understand the flow of traffic.  

Walkers: All walkers should plan to enter the front of the building with the bus riding students. Walkers will leave the building with the car riders out the door to the south parking lot. Parents waiting for their walking student should meet them in the front of the south end of the building. 

Bus Riders: All bus riders will enter the building in the front entrance after unloading buses. Students will walk with their teachers at dismissal all the way to the buses. 

** Your assistance in being patient and following our procedures ensures student safety and supports a positive climate. A consistent dismissal routine assists students and staff in being able to provide a safe and an efficient dismissal. Thank you!
