Each child will have an assigned pick up number and a corresponding tag. The pick-up tag must be displayed in your front window as you pull off the road into the SBA driveway. A staff member will be there to relay your number to the parking lot staff who will then call out to the children. Your child will then be ready by the time you pull up into the pick-up area and will be escorted to your car by a staff member. Each family will receive two tags; families with multiple children will all have the same number. In the event you do not have your tag or you will be picking up another child, there will be a designated lane for you. A picture I.D. and a signature will still be required at pick up daily. When you receive your pick-up tags please share your pick-up tag number with your child (ren) and discuss with them how the parking lot will work at the end of the day.
