    He brings back his children from school daily.

    We say "he drives or walks his children to the School." Do we also say "he drops his children to the School?"

    What do we say when we have to say that he brings his children from School after the School has finished? "He brings back his children from the school daily."

    Please check.

    Re: He brings back his children from school daily.

    Use every day, not "daily". School is not a proper noun unless it's part of a name: write he picks his children up from school, but the London School of Economics.

    Re: He brings back his children from school daily.

    He drives his children to school every day.
    He drops off his children at school every day on his way to work.
    He walks his children to school very day.

    He walks home from school with his children every day.
    He meets his children at school every day to walk home with them.
    He picks up his children from school every day.
    He drives his children home from school every day.

    If he does both:

    He drives his children to and from school every day.
    He walks his children to and from school every day.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Fetch is used in some American dialects. It sounds rustic to people who speak other dialects.
