Car Riders

In order to accomodate a high number of car riders please review and follow the BES car rider procedures, directions, and traffic pattern. We appreciate your cooperation and patience, as the safety of your student is our first priority.


Registration for a car rider tag is only required for K–5 students being picked up in the after-school car rider line. Registration is not needed for morning drop off. Car rider tags can be picked up 9:00 am–3:00 pm in the front office. Pre/VPK car riders should contact the VPK office as these students follow different procedures.

All K–5 car riders should enter the school area off E. Magnolia Street. The yellow line shown in the map below is for K–5 students.

  1. K–5, exit the parking lot and make a right on N. Palmetto.
  2. PK, only car riders will now come down E. Howe street and make a left into the gym parking lot, just before N. Peach St. You will exit onto N. Chapel and make a left to prevent causing issues with the main car rider line on E. Magnolia St. East Howe will be your way in and out of the school zone.
  3. PK cars, do not use N. Peach St. This is needed for PK bus traffic.
  4. For the safety and protection of you and our staff, we are asking for you to wait for staff to direct you and do not pass cars in line unless directed to.
  5. Walkers will continue to use Orange St. Walker parents are not to park anywhere along E. Howe or the side streets.
  6. If your child comes in a car, they should be a car rider. Contact the front office if you need a car rider tag.
