School Zone Traffic Rules

This year, Rhodes Elementary has partnered with the nonprofit organization, Safe Routes To School. As part of this new partnership, Rhodes ES will be joining their national movement to make routes safer and easier for students to walk to school. As we embrace this mission of safety, you may notice some new signs being put up in regards to No U-Turns and No Passing in a school zone. Please know that these signs are only to increase the safety for our students and families. Thank you for your compliance.

Please avoid a traffic ticket/moving violation by following the rules!

*NO U-Turns within the school zone.

*No parking in fire lanes or where you will block the bus lane.

*Pedestrians have the right of way - keep your eyes open for students crossing!

See page 7 of the Parent/Student Handbook for specific Parking Lot and Bus Lane procedures.


Please send a note to your child's teacher within 3 school days of return for all student absences. You can also email the office staff directly as well as your student's teacher for any absence. Please remember that any absence is missed instruction, regardless of whether the absence was excused. Our school continues to focus on improving daily attendance and reducing our absences. Thank you for your support with this!


Students will not be called out of class until a parent is present to sign them out, and arrives prior to 3:00 p.m. Please be prepared to show a photo ID upon checkout for the safety of our students. Please plan ahead for appointments, as we would like to minimize missed class time.
