General Information

  • If you have business at school, please park your car in the parking lot, and do not park at the curb.  “No Parking” signs are posted around the circle.  If you leave your car unattended, you will be ticketed

  • Never block the handicap ramp, as PCMS has both students and parents who utilize the ramp. 

  • The Barclay Road entrance is reserved for buses only.  Do not use the circle off of Barclay Road during bus hours (morning drop off and afternoon dismissal). 

  • Please do not use your cell phone while driving your car in the carpool.  Please focus on our students’ safety.

Morning Drop Off - Carpool

  • Enter the school from N. Peachtree Rd. Follow the traffic circle staying right, and drop off students in front of the gym doors. 

  • Students must exit cars and move directly to the sidewalk. 

  • Between 8:20 and 8:35 am

Afternoon Dismissal - Carpool

No student checkouts allowed 

  • No student checkouts will be allowed after 3:15 pm from the attendance office.

  • Students who are car riders should be picked up using the carpool lane, same as the morning. 

  • Encourage your student to come out of the school when dismissed and to keep a lookout for your vehicle.

  • Please do not leave your vehicle unattended if you arrive on campus before dismissal begins.

Transportation - After School Activities

  • If your child is staying after school for clubs, tutoring, ball games, detention, or any school function, please make sure arrangements for his/her transportation before he/she arrives at school. This will relieve many calls made during and after the school day from the attendance office.

  • Students taking an alternate bus route in the afternoon must have a signed permission slip from the parent/guardian.  The permission slip must be signed and approved by the attendance office in the morning.
