Student Valet Program:
Stockdale Elementary participates in a Student Valet Program. Student safety is always a priority. We believe that the Student Valet Program helps create a safe environment for dropping off students, fosters campus-wide structure, develops leadership character traits in our participating fifth and sixth graders, and promotes student service (volunteerism).Student Valet UseThere is a designated location for families to drop off their child in the front of the school; this is called the valet drop off area. This area is posted with signs, cones and outlined with paint. The valets are stationed at the far end of this location. The driver pulls into the valet drop off area and the valets flag the drivers toward them. When the first driver reaches the farthest valet, the valet signals the driver to stop. The trailing drivers are signaled to stop directly behind each other.
When the driver has made a complete stop the valet will open the passenger door, greet the family with a “Good morning” and help exit the child/children and their backpacks out of the vehicle. The valet will then tell the driver “Have a nice day” and close the vehicle door. The vehicles (in a line) will pull forward and out of the valet area. The fluid motion will encourage drivers not to back up and try to maneuver around each other.
Important rules and expectations for vehicles entering the valet drop off area to understand and follow:
- Only the student is to exit the vehicle.
- The student must exit directly on to the curb and stay on the curb.
- Student must exit immediately. This is not a time for morning instructions or good byes.
- Honking in the valet zone is not permitted.
- Pets are not allowed in the vehicle.
- Follow all vehicle laws such as no cell phone use and no speeding.
- Always pull as far forward as possible.
If you are unable to meet these expectations then our valet program may not be right for you. Please use other areas of our campus to deliver your child to school.Sincerely,Mr. Merickel
