Drop-Off & Pick-Up
Drop-Off & Pick-Up Procedures
In our continuing effort to promote safety as well as efficiency at Sunrise, we request parents and students abide by the following drop-off and pick-up procedures for car commuting students.
Areas for drop-off and pick-up are as follows:
The indented curb area in front of the school on the north side of Acoma Drive is designated as a student drop-off and pick-up zone. Do not exit the vehicle until you are in the indented curb area. Drivers need to avoid stopping in front of the emergency vehicle access lane located immediately west of the bicycle enclosure. It is necessary to approach this drop-off and pick-up zone while driving west on Acoma Drive as "NO U-Turn" signs are allowed for eastbound traffic. This is enforced by the Phoenix Police Department.
There is no stopping for vehicles at any time on the south side of Acoma Drive. Students who walk to school on the south side of Acoma Drive MUST proceed to the marked crosswalk in front of the school for safe entry to the campus.
The east side of 49th Street, the west boundary for Sunrise, is also designated for drop-off and pick-up of students for vehicles traveling north. There is no drop-off or pick-up permitted on the west side of 49th Street
The south side of Marilyn Road, the north boundary for Sunrise, is available for pick-up and drop-off for vehicles traveling east. There is no parking allowed between 7:00 a.m - 4:00 p.m. If a driver needs to assist a student with unloading a school project, musical instrument, bicycle, etc., Marilyn Road is optimal. There is no stopping permitted for westbound traffic.
The only vehicles allowed in the school parking lot are district buses, staff vehicles, and visitors who have an appointment or business in the school office. This minimizes the exposure of students to moving vehicles. Dispersing commuter traffic over the south, west, and north sidewalks around Sunrise ensures student safety and traffic flow efficiency. Please help us help your child arrive and depart Sunrise safely and expediently.
