Morning Drop-off Protocol

To ensure both a safe and efficient morning routine, please review the procedures below. California Avenue and traffic along the street can become hectic and congested with both Chicago Jewish Day School and DePaul Prep parents using the same few blocks for school drop-off. Be mindful of your surroundings, other cars and pedestrians, and students!

  • Students enter DePaul Prep through the main door at 3633 N. California Ave.
  • Have your child ready to exit when you arrive at the drop-off area on the east side of California Ave.
  • Do not park in the drop-off area. If you need to park, please park in our lot on the north side of the building.
  • Follow the line of cars in and out of the drop-off lane.
  • If approaching from the north, please drop your child at the crosswalk at Addison St.
  • Be mindful of bicycles and pedestrians at all times. Our drop-off lane shares space with a designated bike lane.
  • Ride-shares must also follow these guidelines.
