At Macon Hall, our car riders are assigned numbers in order to make the process smooth and quick. If you are interested in receiving a car rider number, please call our front office.
Car riders will assemble and be released from the gym.
Car riders must be dropped off and picked up from the back parking lot. The entrance to this lot is through Dew Cove off Siskin Drive.
Students may not be dropped in the front circle drive.
Please be certain that students can be loaded in the backseat on the passenger side of the car.
Parking in the back or front parking lot and walking up to get your child will not be permitted. For security purposes, children will not be released from the gym.
CELL PHONES are not allowed in our car line. This is to limit distractions and ensure the safety of everyone in line. Safety for the students is our first priority and violations will be addressed.
Students must be able to buckle/unbuckle their own seat belt in the car line.
During morning drop off, students must remain inside their vehicle until 8:55am.
ADDITIONAL CAR LINE: In an effort to speed up our car line, we have added a 2nd drop off and pick up location~ yay! All car numbers 1-599 will continue to use Dew Cove and the back parking lot for drop off and pick up. All car numbers 600 and up (sibling car riders and day care vehicles) will use the former bus circle, located to the left of the building if you are looking at the school. Maps are attached as a guide.
NEW THIS YEAR: We will have Regular Ed PreK and Functional Skills classes this year. They will be dropping off and picking up in the driveway where cars exit from the Dew Cove car line. Please do not become upset if you see a car pass you and turn on that driveway, they will have a bright yellow pass that indicates that they have a PreK or FS student.
Students are considered walkers if they can walk directly to or from their homes when attending school.
Students may not walk to cars parked in the neighborhood. These students will need to get in the car rider line and follow car rider dismissal procedures. This will be closely monitored for the safety of all students.
Students must ride the bus assigned to their home address. Students are not permitted to ride on any other bus. Each student will be picked up and dropped off at their assigned stop.
Kindergarten and 1st grade students must have an adult present at the bus stop in order for the student to be allowed to exit the bus. If a student is returned to the school, it will be documented as a late check out.
Bus riders will be given the conduct rules. Parents should review the rules with students, sign, and return the bottom portion of the rules form. Students who do not comply with the bus rules or the guidelines in the Shelby County Schools Handbook will not be allowed to ride the bus. Safety first will always rule our decisions about student behavior on the bus.
Any change to the mode of transportation for your child from school must be sent in writing to your child’s teacher.
If an emergency situation arises, please call the school (416-2625) before 3:15 PM. Email is not accepted for these reasons: occasional technical issues may occur and teachers are engaged in instruction and may not check email until after school. Additionally, substitute teachers do not have access to teacher email. Any person picking a student up must be listed as a contact in PowerSchool and be prepared to show ID.
