Fairfax Villa Kiss and Ride Procedures

In order for the Fairfax Villa staff to ensure a safe environment for all children, the following drop-off and pick-up procedures should be followed by all families. These procedures will be strictly adhered to each day.  We appreciate your cooperation in keeping our children safe!

Morning Drop-Off Procedures

  • Drop-off begins at 9:00 am. Please do not line up at Kiss and Ride before 8:45 am.
  • We strongly suggest that you make a right turn from Santa Clara Drive (from Bellavia Lane) into the Kiss and ride mapKiss and Ride lane.
  • Proceed to the rear of the school and turn around the loop.
  • When entering the parking lot for the Kiss and Ride line, please do not block the crosswalk. Pull as far forward as possible. School staff will assist you.
  • Do not leave your child if there is no staff member present at Kiss and Ride. You must line up and wait at the starting location until a staff member is in position at Kiss and Ride to receive your child. Otherwise, this creates a dangerous situation where your child is roaming the school grounds unsupervised. There are no exceptions. Ensure students gather their belongings and are prepared to disembark.
  • The students may exit their vehicle on the right passenger side only. The left door should always be closed for safety purposes. If, for any reason, your child must exit from the driver’s side, please escort your child to the sidewalk.
  • After dropping off your child, proceed to exit the Kiss and Ride line carefully. Use extreme caution as walkers will be crossing at various times in a designated crosswalk.  A staff member will use a stop sign to halt traffic when walkers are present. 
  • We strongly suggest that you make a right turn onto Santa Clara Drive as you exit school grounds. This allows a safer and quicker exit.
  • Parents arriving after 9:10 a.m. must park and escort students to the main office.  After 9:10, students must be signed in by a parent.
