Drop off and Pick up at SMS for 2022-23

Drop off

When dropping off, we request that you do so at the high school. When you enter the high school entrance, move into, and stay in, the designated drop-off lane. Follow the drop-off traffic through and exit the high school onto 155. Children should be dropped off only in a marked walk area.

Pick up

When picking up your child, you will need to use the Middle School Entrance. 

  1. Parents will enter campus via the Middle School Entrance
  2. Once on the Shaker Middle School campus, enter into the designated pick up loop which corresponds to your child’s hall. You will see signs directing you through the parking lot with the hall labeled and color coded by the hall’s locker color.
  3. Please follow any staff directives as they are there to help to ensure safety and keep the traffic flowing.
  4. Once parked please stay at your vehicle with it running 

We request that your child take the bus if possible. That is the safest way to get to school and it would cut down on morning traffic and afternoon. If you do plan to transport your child, please follow the clearly marked drop-off and pick-up traffic pattern.
