Lopez Campus Carpool & Walkup Information

IMPORTANT: For your child’s safety, carpool permits are required to pick up children in carpool. This will be strictly enforced. If you don’t have a permit while in line, our staff will direct you to the office to get one. During the first few weeks of school, our staff will be prepared to issue carpool permits. Parents must have ID verification available to be issued a carpool permit. Permits are not required to drop-off students in the morning carpool lines.

NEW FOR 19-20: This year we will have two formal carpool lanes on both Lopez and Palmyra streets.  Palmyra will be open in the morning and afternoon for Middle School student drop off/pick up ONLY.  Lopez will be open in the morning and afternoon for Elementary student drop off/pick up AND families that have students in both Elementary and Middle School.  For families with both age group students must use the Lopez carpool lane ONLY.  

Due to the staggered dismissal times, it is vital that parents plan accordingly for carpool. 

  • Elementary (PYP) Dismissal – 2:55 PM
  • Middle School Dismissal – 3:00 PM

It is IMPERATIVE that parents and guardians using carpool follow the directives of the security guard and school staff on duty at all times. Morris Jeff is committed to student safety, demonstrating respect to all, and dismissing students to families with efficiency. Your actions are key to our safe, caring community.

Handicap parking spaces are only for those with a handicapped parking permit.
When parking, do not block the driveways of our neighbors.
Pedestrians need to cross only at crosswalks.

Please review the following information, depending on your family’s choice.
