At the end of a work day, many of us want to quickly get to our cars and take a moment to exhale. Ancona students are the same: at the end of their school day, they want to reunite with their adults and take a moment to exhale.
This car line process has been designed to give each student that moment. It will also improve safety, mitigate cars getting stuck in the alley, and help us be good neighbors.
Please contact Ayanna Savage at if you have any questions about the updated car line process.
Preprimary Families — Pick Up Time: 3:00 PM
Preprimary families will be given color coded placards to place in their car windows. You will receive this placard from your child’s teacher, and the color will indicate the classroom and teacher. It should be placed on the passenger side dashboard during pick-up.
When you arrive at the school, please stay with your car. Your child will be brought to you by a member of the Ancona staff. You may also choose to stand just outside your car so your child will see you.
