Drop-off/ Pick-Up

The drop-off/pick-up zone is on the side of our building, accessible from 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. 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 at our side door.   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.
