Dropoff & Pickup
STUDENT DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP PROCEDURES
Morning Procedures: The first bell rings at 8:15 a.m. and the TARDY bell rings at 8:19 a.m. Students should not arrive prior to 7:45 a.m. unless they are in athletics or an extracurricular activity. In that case, students should be dropped off at the gyms or band hall. Staff will not be on duty to supervise prior to 7:45 a.m.
Our drop-off procedures are different to ensure social distancing protocols are in place.
Not arrive prior to 7:45 unless in athletics or extracurricular events (i.e. 7th grade athletics). In that event, students should be dropped off at the gyms. The doors to the school will not be open until 7:45. Please do not drop your students off before 7:45 AM to ensure their safety. The first bell rings at 8:15 and the tardy bell rings at 8:19.
6th graders get dropped off on Childress Street, and walk in through the cafeteria doors.
7th graders get dropped off on N. Campus Blvd near Golden Chick, and walk in the front door.
8th graders get dropped off on N. Campus Blvd near the football field, and walk in the door at the 8th grade hallway.
Students will report to their homerooms.
Students who choose to eat breakfast will go to the cafeteria first to eat breakfast.
When the first bell rings at 8:15, students will dismiss to their first period class.
Pick-up procedures are similar:
6th graders are dismissed on Childress Street
7th graders are dismissed on N. Campus Blvd near Golden Chick
8th graders are dismissed on N. Campus Blvd near the football field
It is important to note:
Students must wear a mask as soon as they are at Lone Star and until they leave Lone Star. They cannot take their masks off when the bell rings.
If you have more than one child, please drop-off and pick-up at the youngest child's grade level location.
Additional drop-off and pick-up social distancing protocols will be in place, including place markers and grouping of students.
The cafeteria will also be available for any student eating breakfast from 7:45 – 8:15 each morning. The serving line will close at 8:10 a.m. The first bell will ring at 8:15 a.m. and students will report to their first period class. Students are to be in their first period class by the time the tardy bell rings at 8:19 a.m. Students arriving after the tardy bell should report directly to the office for a tardy slip.
When delivering or picking up your child from Childress Street, please do not park or pull-in the parking lot in front of the boy’s gym. This procedure is important for your child’s safety and for the orderly flow of traffic.
Papa Johns has asked that you do not park in their lot.
We ask that all parents help us follow these procedures, so we know where students are at dismissal. If there is more than one Lone Star MS student in the family, students will dismiss from the youngest child’s dismissal location. For students walking home there are four crossing guard locations. Please encourage your child to use the crossing guards for their safety.
Bus Procedures: Bus transportation is available for students meeting eligibility criteria. Buses will load and unload at the front of the school. Please visit the school district’s website at www.saisd.org or call transportation at 659-3608 or 659-3609 for further information.
