Are you changing the way your child goes home?

Kiss and Ride

Parents may drop their child(ren) off in our kiss and ride loop in the morning. Patrols will begin to unload cars at 8:20 a.m. Pickup will begin at 3:20 p.m.

  • During arrival and dismissal times, cars must exit from the school kiss and ride loop by making a RIGHT TURN ONLY.
  • Please do not pass other cars on the left, wait your turn.  
  • Drop off and pick up your child only in the Kiss and Ride traffic pattern.
  • Pull your vehicle forward as far as possible in the line.
  • Make sure that your child exits your car on the building side (passenger side only). Patrols will assist your child in exiting and entering your vehicle. Parents must remain in their car for safety purposes. 
  • Do not leave your car unattended in the Kiss and Ride area.


Students who walk to school should be reminded to follow safety rules. Prescribed routes which are monitored by safety patrols should be taken. Students should walk on sidewalks, avoiding neighborhood yards. Patrols will be placed in various places on Hayfield's school campus to ensure the safety of your child. Kindergarten and first grade parents who walk home with their child(ren) can meet outside the library entrance (exit 10). All other students in grades 2-6 will use exit 3 to leave the building.

Bus Riders

Bus service is provided for students who live more than one mile from school or where walking is hazardous. Schedules for bus riders are mailed to students prior to the first day of school. Students are expected to cooperate with safety patrols and bus drivers, behave in an orderly manner, obey safety rules, remain seated and talk quietly after boarding the bus. Students who persist in disruptive behavior can be denied temporarily (or permanently in extreme cases) the privilege of riding the bus.

Safety Patrols

Responsible students have been selected to participate in the school safety program directed by a teacher sponsor with assistance from Fairfax County Police. The primary objective is to promote safety among children. Patrols have neither the authority nor the training to stop or direct traffic.
