ACS Families,

It has come to our attention that ACS Carpool Rules are not always being followed. Please remember that carpool is a courtesy provided by ACS Staff Members. ACS is not required to provide a drop off and pick up service. ACS has rules in place for the safety and well-being of our students, families and staff. Please see below for a list of carpool reminders. Not adhering to any of the ACS Carpool rules could result in the loss of carpool privileges. For a full list of carpool rules, please visit the Parent and Student Handbook.

  1. Please do NOT cut across the parking lot, through the parking spaces. Please slow down and stay within the driving lanes only. This is for the safety of everyone walking to and from their vehicles.
  2. Please remember that the first (side) entrance into the Parking Lot, as well as the main thoroughfare through the Parking Lot, is a 2-way street. Please do not drive down the middle of the lanes. Please make room for oncoming traffic and share the road.
  3. Please do NOT drop your students off before 7:45am during morning carpool, unless you plan to sign them in to Academy Kids. Again, this is for the safety of all students. Morning carpool runs from 7:45-8:10am.
  4. If you are not utilizing the carpool lane and services, you MUST park your car in a designated parking spot, and either walk your students in or walk in to retrieve your students. Please do NOT drop off your student anywhere within the parking lot and allow them to walk in unattended. This creates a safety issue.
  5. Please do NOT pull into the Handicap spots, Paid VIP parking spots, or any other no-parking area, without proper authorization, to drop off or pick up your students. Please find a regular parking spot and walk in. ACS Staff has routinely witnessed several families using the Handicap or Paid VIP parking spots, without proper authorization, in order to bypass the carpool line.
  6. Please do NOT use any of the well-marked Paid VIP Parking Spots without authorization. These spots were purchased by ACS Families and are theirs to use any time during the school year. This includes before, during and after school, as well as, during all ACS sponsored events. If you would like to purchase one of these parking spots, please plan to bid on one during the ACS Auction this Spring.
  7. Please do NOT drive through or around the orange safety cones. These are in place to designate no entry or no parking areas.
  8. Outside of carpool times, if you are dropping off a student or an item to the front office, please do NOT park in the fire lane in front of the school. Please park your car in a designated parking spot and walk in. Any cars found in violation of this could be ticketed or towed by the Town of Castle Rock, at the owner’s expense.
  9. Our new PM Carpool pick up procedure will be based on your youngest student’s grade level. Older siblings will be released at their youngest sibling’s release time. For example, if you have a 1st grader, 4th grader and an 8th grader, you will pick up at 3:30pm. Students carpool numbers will only be posted for release from the classroom at the designated times below. To prevent congestion, please do not arrive on property prior to your designated time.

PM Carpool pick up times:

  • Kindergarten-2nd grades, please arrive on property no earlier than 3:30pm.
  • 3rd-5th grades, please arrive on property no earlier than 3:40pm.
  • 6th-8th grades, please arrive on property no earlier than 3:45pm.

At ACS, we understand that everyone may be in a hurry and may have other commitments to attend. We also understand students will sometimes be late. But for the safety of everyone, please slow down and follow all carpool rules all of the time. If we work together, we can make the carpool process run safely and efficiently.

Thank you for your continued support! For clarifications or questions, please contact the Governing Board at
