The School will implement daily screenings during morning carpool to determine the health and exposure of students, faculty/staff, and anyone entering either the Lower Campus or the Upper Campus. Please follow previously published daily screening protocols for the safety of the Mount Vernon community.
As our community safely navigates the start of school carpool procedures, please pay close attention to the designated entrances and exits and follow instructions as indicated.
Carpool begins at 7:30 a.m. Please only enter from the Johnson Ferry entrance.
If dropping off a Preschool child only, turn left once on campus. Pull down past the awning-covered walkway, through to the Mount Vernon Hwy circle where students will be screened while remaining in their vehicle. Faculty will be there to assist each child. Exit slowly onto Mount Vernon Hwy.
When dropping off a student in K-5, enter from Johnson Ferry Road and turn right. Loop around the island, to the left, pull down as far as possible in front of the courtyard for your child to be screened while remaining in the vehicle. Faculty will be present for supervision and assistance. Exit slowly onto Johnson Ferry Road.
When dropping off a Preschooler and an older child, drop off the older student first then continue around toward the Preschool. Exit slowly onto Mount Vernon Hwy. For the safety of all of our students, please do not pass another car while in carpool and follow the directions of faculty.
Do not enter morning carpool from either entrance on Mount Vernon Hwy.
Display your Mount Vernon-issued carpool number (distributed at orientation) on the passenger’s side of your vehicle’s windshield in the upper right corner for easy recognition.
Grades K-1: Enter from Johnson Ferry Road, turn right, and stay in the left lane. At the end of the island, turn left and wrap around in front of the courtyard to continue past the Frontier. Once you have picked up your child, exit onto Mount Vernon Hwy.
Grades 2-5: Enter from Johnson Ferry Road, turn right, and stay in the right lane. At the end of the island, proceed forward with the building on your left. Once you have picked up your child, exit onto Mount Vernon Hwy.
Preschool: When picking up your Preschool student you will follow the same procedures as Preschool morning carpool. Once you have picked up your child, exit onto Mount Vernon Hwy. (PK3-PK4 carpool pick up is at 12:00 pm and PK5 carpool pick up is at 1:30 pm. See map at top of page.)
Please note: In the afternoons, older siblings should go to their younger sibling's carpool loading area.
