Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

ST. RAYMOND SCHOOL DROP OFF AND PICK UP PRESCHOOL – 8TH GRADE

Please review the following drop off and pick up procedures. We ask for your cooperation to ensure the safety of all our students to and from school. Thank you for your help.

Families with 4th-8th grade students are strongly encouraged to use the parking lot for pick up and drop off. We have many younger students that need additional guidance and may need to use Elmhurst Avenue for pick up and drop off.
