Traffic Protocol

Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures

Please share this information with anyone who will be dropping off or picking up your child. If you will be driving your child to Glen Oaks, please bring your child to school between 8:15 and 8:25 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 8:25 a.m. or 3:00 p.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.  PLEASE KEEP THE SAFETY OF ALL OF OUR PANTHERS IN MIND AT ALL TIMES!

Bus information

If your child is a bus rider, the district transportation department will be sending a letter, before school starts, which will detail your child’s bus stop location and time. Students riding the bus will be dropped off at the west or south entrance of Glen Oaks and will be dismissed from the same entrance. If, for any reason, you child will be picked up instead of taking the bus home, you must send a signed note to your child’s teacher that day indicating this will happen. If a note is NOT SENT from home, your child will go home on the bus.
