Car Drop-Off and Pick-Up:  Oak Ridge
Coming Soon
 
Car Drop-Off and Pick-Up: Glen Oaks
If you will be driving your child to Glen Oaks, please bring your child to school between 8:45 and 8:55 a.m. Drop off your child at the crosswalk at the east end of the school property on the north side of 91st Street. We will station an adult there to help our students cross. Please DO NOT PARK ON 91ST Street in order to prevent congestion and traffic jams. Your child will then follow the sidewalk path to the back of the building. Driving into the parking lot is not allowed, as our school buses will be driving through the lot to drop off students. After 8:55 a.m., your child must be signed in or picked up by an adult at the front office on the west side of the building. 

When picking up your child after school, please pull up on 91st Street (north or south) to allow the children to safely enter on the passenger side of your vehicle. Students who need to cross to the south side of 91st Street must cross with an adult – our crossing guard or yourself, if you so choose. Please exercise patience in waiting for cars to move on 91st Street in order to prevent accidents and to avoid being ticketed. Double parking or parking in posted “No Parking” (north side of 91st St. west of the crosswalk to 88th Ave. and south side of 91st St. between 88th Ave. and 87th Ct.) or yellow painted curb zones will result in a ticket from the Hickory Hills Police Department. Driving into the parking lot is not allowed, as our school buses will be driving through the lot to pick up students.
 
U-turns are not allowed, and using a cell phone in a school zone is also illegal. 

Student Dismissal 11:55 - 12:00 

 
Reporting an Absence
