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.
Please exercise extreme caution when driving on the Upper Campus. With student drivers on campus, we ask everyone to be alert and aware at all times.
Carpool begins at 7:30 a.m. for both Middle and Upper School. Enter from Mount Vernon Hwy.
Follow the driveway to the right, all the way to the circular drive. As the carpool line moves forward, please keep moving in one line, pulling all the way up, just past the Middle School building, where students will be screened while remaining in their vehicle. Please drive slowly exiting campus, yielding to students who may be crossing the road. Exit onto Mount Vernon Hwy.
Follow the driveway to the left, turning in front of the Upper School building. As the carpool line moves forward, please keep moving in one line, pulling all the way up, just past the Upper School building to drop students off. Circle around to the left. Please drive slowly exiting campus, yielding to students who may be crossing the road. Exit onto Mount Vernon Hwy.
Carpool begins at 3:00 pm for Middle School, and at 3:05 pm for Upper School.
Please follow the same procedure as Upper Campus morning carpool for both Middle School and Upper School. We prohibit students in grades 6-8 from walking to the Upper School or Lower Campus for afternoon carpool. Please go through both campus carpools in the afternoon, if you have children on both Lower Campus AND Upper Campus. If your 6-8 grade student must walk over to Lower Campus, please send a note of permission to Joelann Toppin, firstname.lastname@example.org.
