Beginning at 7:00, students can be dropped off to the cafeteria, located on M-4, to purchase and eat breakfast. For students not eating breakfast, students may dropped off in two different locations beginning at 7:15. Gates will open to students at 7:15 at the front parking lot on 50th Street West, and the side parking lot located on M-4. Quartz Hill is a closed campus, meaning that only students are able to enter the campus. If a parent wishes to come on to campus they will need to come through the office and sign in. However, parents may not access the campus before school, during recess, or lunch unless a meeting has been previously scheduled. Gates will close at 7:45. Any tardy students will need to enter through the school office.
Quartz Hill is an extremely busy school during pick-up time. Please be patient, as the school staff is trying to work quickly and efficiently in ensuring that all students exit the school in a safe fashion. Please see the list below, for exit locations broken down by grade-level. Siblings will exit the school at the oldest sibling exit location, unless there is a kindergarten student. If a sibling is a kindergartner, all siblings will exit with the kindergartner through the cafeteria.
