Drop-off/ Pick-Up

The 3rd & 4th grade drop-off/pick-up zone is on the side of our building, accessible from the parking lot next to our main parking lot off of 11 Mile Rd. Our K/1/2 families should drop-off/pick up at the back of our building, accessible from the lot off of Taft Rd. At Parkview, we ask parents/guardians to pull as far forward as possible, using extreme caution in our parking lots with a focus on safety for everyone. Students should only exit on the right side of the vehicle and parents/guardians should not get out of their vehicle. Staff members are present outside at various locations to help guide this process.

Walking To/From School 

The Novi Community School District policy states that if you reside within walking distance of the school your child attends, then your child is expected to walk. One mile or under is considered the "walk zone" for elementary schools.


CARE is located in our building's multipurpose room.  Parents can access this before and after school from the front door by the main office.   CARE services are  provided  by our Community Education Department.  Students  can be dropped off as early as 6:45 a.m. and must be picked up by 6:00 p.m.  For more information please call 248-675-3400.
