Pick Up / Drop Off Procedures

Before your child begins at AXIS, please be sure to read through our DropOff_PickUp Procedures and pick up your vehicle placard from our front office. 
It is important to note that drop off and pick up traffic flow MUST always follow the Northbound direction. All vehicles entering and exiting campus must make right turns only. NO LEFT TURNS ALLOWED. 
Student Safety at Drop Off / Pick Up Time
Essential Drop off and Pick Up Procedures
  • Safety is our #1 Priority!
    • No phone usage while in a moving vehicle.
    • Drive slowly.
    • Watch out for children who walk home and ride their bikes.
  • No Left Turns 
    • Always enter AXIS via heading North on Lemay and turn Right into our parking lot. 
    • Always exit AXIS by turning Right (North) onto Lemay when exiting the parking lot.
  • Do not enter or exit AXIS from Drake 
  • Each child will have a backpack tag they will receive at the Back to School Social, or the first week of school. This should be attached to the top backpack loop. This will include their first and last name, grade, language and morning teacher.
  • Each household will receive two car placards (pick up signs) with their last name and a unique household pin number that should be displayed on the right side of the front dash each day during pick up.
  • No parking is allowed on the neighborhood streets (Bluebonnet Ln, Peony, Zinnia). These are private roads and parking here may result in a fine or towing of the vehicle. 

Drop off will occur from 7:50AM-8:00AM and pick up will occur from 3:10PM-3:20PM. As families pull through the pick up line, AXIS staff will use two-way radios and the Driveline system to call for the students by name or by entering the pin number that is displayed on the dashboard. AXIS Staff will send out children and escort them to their vehicle. In order to keep the traffic flowing smoothly, we encourage any children who require assistance with buckling into their car seat to use the Park and Walk option, While in the loading loop, all passengers must remain in their car (do not attempt to get out to assist your child with their seatbelt). 

What Are My Options for Drop Off/Pick Up?  

  1. AXIS Kid to Curb Service: In order to reduce congestion and maximize efficiency we highly recommend all parents to use our Kid-to-Curb drive through pick-up and drop off service.
  2. Park & Walk: For students who need assistance getting in and out of the car, or for those families who prefer to walk their student to the front door, you may utilize the Park & Walk lot. Please see specific instructions in the Park & Walk section.
  3. Bike: Students and families who ride bikes to AXIS in the morning will be using the Drake entrance and exit. Bike riders will enter AXIS via the rolling gate (this will be opened at 8:00AM for drop off and at 3:05PM for pick up). Bike riders should exit the campus in the same direction to ensure bike riders are not in the vehicle traffic flow. 

1. Kid to Curb: All AXIS families who wish to use our drive-thru “Kid to Curb” service will drop off and pick up using our drive-thru lane.

3. Bikes: For families who ride their bikes to school, please use the entrance from Drake and turn right onto Feathergrass. For before and pick up, we will open the large sliding gate on the east side of the building. You will be able to walk bikes up to the east (cafeteria) doors to check out your child.  Please exit the same way (via Feathergrass/Drake) to avoid the drop off/pick up traffic

Display Your Name Card at Pick Up!
If you received a car name tag at the Back to School popsicle social, please be sure to write your students last name on it and display it in your passenger side windshield during pick up. This will speed up the pick up process immensely! 
Remember you must enter the drop off lane via heading North on Lemay and you must exit North onto Lemay (both are right turns), please do not attempt a left turn into or out of our parking lot during drop off and pick up. 
If you need to pick up your child from school outside of the normal pick-up times, please call our front office so that they may prepare for your arrival. When you arrive, you must wear your visitor badge and enter into AXIS to sign your child out of school. 
You can feel free to bring your child back mid-day, as well. Please plan to alert the front office of your arrival and then enter the main doors of AXIS to sign your child back in. 
We use the RAPTOR system for all visitors. This requires that you bring your photo ID with you into the building. On your first visit, we scan your ID and create a visitor badge that you can wear for the entire school year.
