Virginia Lake Arrival/Departure Information

  • Please observe and follow these procedures for the safety of all children.

    • No cars are permitted to enter/exit at Glenn Drive between 9:00-9:15 a.m. and 3:45-4:15 p.m., Fridays 2:45-3:15 p.m.
    • Do not park or leave your vehicle unattended either in the Rohlwing Road lot pull-off or in the parking lot.
    • Students arriving after 9:15 a.m. must enter through the main school entrance. They must check in with the school office to obtain a tardy slip.
    • Drop off and pick up your child in the car loop off Rohlwing.
    • No pets on school property, please.
    • Parents may also drop off children in the morning only by entering the school parking lot off Rohlwing Road and circling around to the sidewalk on the south side of the school. Students should exit the car on the passenger side.
    • Parents should pick up their children using the car loop.  Please do not park on Rowling by Virginia Lake.  This blocks the traffic coming in and out of the car rider loop.
    • You may park in Palatine High School’s stadium parking lot and walk over to the school. This is allowable in the morning and the afternoon.
    • If you are detained and have not picked up your child by 4:00 p.m., your child will wait for you in the main office. Remember that this should be the exception rather than the rule.
    • Any changes in your child’s transportation schedule must be brought to the attention of the school office in writing or by calling the school at least 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day. If your student’s transportation changes regularly, you will need to meet with the principal.
