The drive-through pickup location for all is the same: the school bus loop at Kelso High School. To properly manage checkout in drive-through fashion, cars must enter the KHS bus loop off of Tam O'Shanter Way (behind Rite-Aid) next to Sodendecker Field just outside of Tam O’Shanter Park. See map below. 

Remain in your car and we will bring the Chromebook to you.
