Pickup & Drop Off

Athlos Academy of St. Cloud utilizes a unique pickup system called Driveline to help keep students safe at dismissal, allowing students to be released from class at the end of the day in a very organized manner.

If you need to pick your student up one day instead of having them ride the bus, please inform the school’s office by 1:00 p.m. that day and pick your student up using the Driveline procedures.

If this is the first time you are picking up your student, you will need to stop by the front office as your student will not be released until you receive a Driveline tag. The front office will then direct you to the pickup route. The Driveline tag is yours for the rest of the year and must be used every time you pick your student up.

How Driveline Works

  • Students will gather their materials at the end of the day and return to their seats.
  • Teachers will display the Driveline screen on the board at the front of the classroom.
  • As cars pull in the pick up line, a number will be entered into the app.
  • Once a number has been entered into the app, the associated student’s (or students’) name will pop up in the classroom. This is the teacher’s cue to release that student from class.
  • Teachers will be stationed around the school to assist students in safely loading cars.

Drop Off

Students are to arrive no earlier than 6:45 a.m.

Students must be dropped off only in the designated loading zone. Follow the entrance and exit route on the map. Be sure to pull all the way up to the car in front of you as this will help move traffic along and keep waiting cars off the main road. An attendant will be on site each morning to assist students with crossing the loading zone. They will also help direct traffic.

Our number one concern is student safety. Please be patient and kind.


Students are to be picked up by 2:30 p.m. (30 minutes after school ends). Students may only remain in the building longer if they are participating in a supervised activity approved by the administration. Please do not check your child out of school “early” after 12:00 p.m. The office staff’s primary duty at this time of day is preparing for a safe dismissal.

Student's Role

Your teacher will indicate when it is time to clean up and gather your things. Once you have packed up your backpack and put on your jacket, you can sit down to wait. When your ride arrives, your name will pop up on the big screen in your classroom. This is your cue to head out to the loading zone. Don’t dawdle! Your ride is driving around the building, and your job is to get to the loading zone at the same time they do. If you need to cross the loading zone, be sure to wait for the crossing guard.

Parent's Role

Each family has been assigned a Driveline number. You will be issued a tag to hang from the rear-view mirror of your car. Be sure to follow the driving route outlined on the map. When you enter the driveway, an attendant will type your family number into a system. This will trigger your child’s release from class. By the time you drive around the building, your child will meet you at the loading zone. Please pull all the way up to the car in front of you. This will help keep the loading line moving along.


Carpools make the dismissal process go more quickly. Once you have decided on your carpools, simply exchange Driveline numbers. We’ll be sure to type them all in when you arrive.
