For the safety of our students and the convenience of parents, and for the peace and quiet of the neighborhood, YAYOE offers a carpool line for loading and unloading students (see below for information regarding carpool line procedures.)
It is NEVER legal, safe or permissible to load or unload children while “double parked”, i.e., standing in a traffic lane, or to do so while stopped in a red zone or blocking a driveway. Children must ALWAYS be loaded or unloaded from a legally parked car.
If you are dropping off or picking up a student outside of carpool hours, or if for any reason you will not be using the carpool line to pick up your child, you must park in a legal parking spot on the street, and escort your child or children to and from the campus. Dropping children off from street parking to walk themselves to or from school is not allowed.
In the interests of carpool safety and efficiency, please make sure that all booster seats and car seats are arranged in their proper places prior to entering the campus carpool lane. Booster seats may not be left in hallways due to fire regulations.
How to Enter and Exit the Carpool Line:
‣ Enter through the Formosa Ave. gate, exit through the Detroit St. gate.
- Enter Formosa Ave. by turning right from westbound Third Street. The line forms as a single-file line from the Formosa Ave. gate, with the backup wrapping around the corner when necessary into the far right lane of west-bound Third St., following the property frontage of the Yeshiva. Turning left into Formosa from eastbound Third Street during carpool hours impedes the flow of street traffic and is not allowed.
‣ EXIT by turning right onto southbound Detroit St. Turning left (north) onto Detroit St. from the Yeshiva campus burdens our neighbors and is not allowed.

Non-Carpool Student Transport:
Walking, Biking and Scootering to School
Children who walk or ride bikes or scooters to school must have signed parental permission forms on file in the office. (Permission forms may be obtained from the front office and the completed forms returned to the office BEFORE the student comes to school on their own).
Students must wear helmets while riding a bicycle or scooter, and must dismount before walking their scooters/bikes through the pedestrian gates onto campus. Riding bicycles or scooters on campus is not allowed at any time, for the safety of other students.
Skateboards, rollerblades, and motorized scooters are not allowed on campus.
Children on Campus Before & After School Hours
YAYOE is please to offer many optional after-school activities on campus, including enrichment classes.
While on-campus with your children, you must supervise them! Please stay in close proximity to children, watching them at all times while they are playing.
Eyes on your cellphone does not count as watching your children.
