Darien Summer School & Enrichment

Drop-Off & Pick-Up

Please know that DSS is not responsible for supervising children before and after posted summer school hours.

Parking Areas:

When dropping off/picking up students we ask that you do so in front of the auditorium or in the loop by the gym entrance.  Please do not stop to drop off/pick up in front of the main entrance or library entrance. 

If you would like to walk your child into the building, the area that is typically used for buses during the school year will become temporary parking, in addition to the regular parking spots. 

We will have cones, signs, and staff members to direct traffic according to the planned routes and to maintain safety for all.  Please drive slowly - safety first!
