Carpool

Carpool Instructions

Carpool Procedures & Expectations


Every elementary and middle school family will be issued two (2) Corvian carpool tags free of charge. Tags at the elementary school may be obtained at the Covenant Conference. Tags at the MS may be obtained during 5-8th grade schedule pick-up. You must have the school issued carpool tag in your car to pick up your child.  If you do not have your Corvian carpool tag and carpool sign you will be asked to park and come inside to show your ID before being allowed to pick up your child. This process allows us to ensure that every child is going home with the right person. Please hang your school issued carpool tag on a hanger and hang it from your rearview mirror.

If you need replacement tags or would like to purchase additional tags, please contact the front desk of the building your student attends. Additional tags will cost $25 each.

For the safety of our students, parents should refrain from using cell phones while the carpool line is in motion. This includes hands-free calls, Facebook, checking emails, etc.  Cell phones are a distraction that put staff and students at risk. If a driver is seen using their cell phone during carpool, they will be asked to put it away. If you are asked on more than one occasion to put away your phone, your carpool privileges may be revoked for a period of time as seen fit by our administrative team.

Pets in cars during carpool must be restrained.
