Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures



The safety of all our students is our highest priority at Cross Elementary. Because there will be over 250 cars that come in and out of our school twice daily, we have designated specific routes to be used to accommodate and promote the smooth flow of traffic. We need all families to help and support the safety of all students and assist our school in being a good neighbor in our residential community. 

Our student Safety Patrol provides a safe pedestrian crossing for students and families on Cross and Fonzie before and after school.  Please be respectful and follow their instructions.
