Drop-Off & Pick-Up Procedures
Due to staffing shortages, you may experience transportation delays or cancellations. In the event you need to drop off your child in the morning or pick them up in the afternoon, here are our procedures.
For both drop off and pick up, we ask you to enter the River Birch parking lot from County Road 75 North, turn right and proceed to the far east end of the parking lot. The line will wind around to the circle drive outside Door #18. Students must always exit and enter the vehicle from the passenger side. Car seats and seatbelts can be fastened in the main parking lot if parent assistance is needed.
Car Rider Procedures
If your child will be an CAR RIDER PICKUP at any point throughout the school year, please complete a new registration to ensure we have the correct information. Regardless if your child is a new or returning car rider, please complete the form for the 2022-2023 School Year. New car tags will be given once you are registered.
If you have previously been assigned a car rider number, that number will continue to be assigned to your family. Each car will need a number card to be permitted to pick up a child via the line. All cars without a number will be asked to go to the main office and present ID to pick up.

Morning Drop Off
In the mornings, River Birch staff will come out of the school at 9:10 am to release students from cars that have reached the curb. All students must exit the vehicle on the curb side for safety. Staff on the curb will provide assistance with your child.
Afternoon Pick Up
In the afternoons, students are released in groups of 8 to the cars that have reached the curb beginning at 4:10 pm. All students must enter the vehicle on the curb side only. Staff on the curb will provide assistance if you need it.

What if a route is cancelled?
- If Avon Schools cannot provide bus transportation, parents will be asked to provide transportation or the student will be marked excused in their attendance
- If we cannot provide transportation in the morning, evening transportation will not be provided either.
- Avon Schools will alert you through ParentSquare if transportation is not available. Our goal is to be in touch at least an hour before the first scheduled pick up.
- Parents should update their pick-up lists to include trusted adults who may be required to pick up their child after school.
