Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures

We appreciate your commitment to ensuring a safe and efficient drop-off for your children. Please remember that our school doors will open at 9 a.m. each morning, with classes beginning at 9:15 a.m.  Arriving promptly at this time allows us to manage the flow of students and ensures a smooth start to the school day. 

Cascade View is a walking only school; no bus transportation is provided except for programming between SVSD schools. The front area of the school is for bus loading, staff parking, and disabled parking. We have reserved spots in the main parking lot along the sidewalk for parents and school visitors.  

For student drop-offs, we request all parents who drive to school use our drive through drop-off area from Douglas Avenue. This is a supervised area and an easy in and out. The front parking lot is for parking only; it is not a drop-off area. Parents using this lot should park and safely escort their student to the front entrance of the school. ALL students in grades 1-5 should be dropped off using the drop off loop in the back of the school, accessible on Douglas Avenue. 

School safety remains a priority for Cascade View. We strongly encourage families to have a conversation with students who ride bikes or scooters and that they should always ride on sidewalks, look both ways when crossing the street, and wear a helmet. In addition, be mindful of our many student walkers and go slow when passing other students or families. 

Please also remind your child not to engage in conversations with adults they encounter while walking to and from school. While we are fortunate to have a supportive community, we want to maintain a safe environment for everyone. If your child ever encounters any unusual or concerning activity, encourage them to report it to a trusted adult immediately, whether it be a teacher, staff member, or yourself.

To support our recess supervisors in monitoring the safety of all students, please refrain from coming up to the fence and visiting with your children and/or other students during the school day. As we teach and review recess expectations, students are reminded to stay back from fences and play in visible areas on the playground.

We ask that our families follow these guidelines throughout the year to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
