Olathe North does not have a specific route that parents need to travel to drop off and pick up students. Here are a couple suggestions list below for arrival and departure.
Arrival: If you are dropping students off at 7:30 am you can literally drop your student off at any location. Front of building near south commons entrance. North of building at 800 or North Commons Entry. Or you can drop them off near the lower 900 entrance on the east side of the school. Due to 2,000 students and 260 staff we have several entrances open for arrival. If arrival is after 7:30, I would drop in the rear (North-side) of the building. There is less bus traffic.
We will be attempting to make some significant changes in the morning if you are dropping your student off in front of the school. We are requesting that you pull into our front driveway and drive down to the South Commons entrance. Please understand that safety of our students is our number one priority. With that being said, we do not want parents dropping students off on Prairie Street. Please pull into the lot to drop students off. Our morning security will be there to direct traffic.
Dismissal: If you are picking your student up I would recommend not coming until 3:10 when all student drivers and buses have vacated the premises. If you feel as though you need to arrive prior to 3:00 pm, I would recommend the North Commons or 800 entries on the north side of the building. This is the only location that we do not have buses loading for departure.
