Drop-Off/Pick-Up Procedure

Student Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures Coordinated with Mater Dei Catholic High School.

The safety of our students is of the utmost importance. Therefore, the following guidelines for pick-up and drop-off have been developed. Please follow these guidelines at all times.

Student Drop-off 

● Parents must park at the Mater Dei Church parking lot. 

● Parents walk their student to the school, past the De Paul Center in the direction of the Guadalupe Center. 

● Parents arrive at the black wrought iron gate, Gate 1, and drop off students at the gate.

● Student supervision will start at 8:00 am. No students should be dropped off prior to this time. Any students who need to be dropped off earlier than 8:00 am must be checked in at Lima 4 for MDJDA’s before school care program as part of ECEP (Extended Care Enrichment Program). 

● Parents may not drop off students at the roundabout nor park for any amount of time at the roundabout. This is due to safety concerns. Parents are expected to model respect and dignity for all in all their interactions with school personnel tasked with enforcing these guidelines. 

Student Pick-up 

● Parents must park at the Mater Dei Church parking lot and walk to the front of the Guadalupe Center (MDJDA’s main office). Parents can wait outside of the Guadalupe center starting at 3:10 pm, but no earlier. Students will not be dismissed from the classrooms, they will be brought to the area in front of the main office by their teachers at 3:15 pm Monday through Thursday and at 1:00 pm on Fridays and other minimum days.
