What are the student drop-off/pick-up expectations? 
Please help us ensure the safety of all the children at Anne Sullivan School by following the drop-off and pick-up map. Students can be dropped off in the morning when there is a supervisor present at 8:15. We ask that parents stay in the line and pull up as directed by the supervisors. The first four cars will then have students dropped off. Then the next group of four pulls up and students exit their cars. We ask that students and parents do not walk across the drop-off and pick-up area because it is too dangerous. We also ask that you do not park in the lot by the drop-off and pick-up because staff members park there.

For the afternoon pick-up, we ask that parents stay in the line and pull up as directed by the supervisors. The first four cars will then pick-up their students. Then the next group of four pulls up and students enter their cars. Thank you for your assistance to make sure all students arrive and leave safely each day.
Cell phone use in School Zones - New laws ban motorists from sending text messages while driving in Illinois and make it illegal to talk on a cell phone while driving through a highway construction zone or school zone. In addition, it will become illegal to compose, send or read text messages, instant messages, and e-mail on a cell phone or surf the internet while driving. The only exceptions are if the driver is using a Bluetooth or hands free device, or if the driver is calling 911 to report an emergency. The first violation carries a minimum fine of $150.00 and a minimum fine of $300.00 for the second offense. Anyone violating this offense will be charged an additional $50.00 to be paid to the school district for school safety purposes.
