South Drop Off & Spirit Wear Day
New Traffic Pattern for the Morning in South Lot
Tomorrow there will be cones for a new traffic pattern for drop off in the south parking lot. The reason for change is due to the safety of students and eliminating the need for them to pass in between or in front of cars in the drop off line. We have had some close calls of parents not seeing students as they begin to drive off, so the new pattern will eliminate that possibility.
The new pattern does not change how families enter the drop off line, only how they exit the line. Instead of driving past the classrooms after your child has entered the building, the new pattern involves a cone barrier which will allow our car line to turn near the entrance door toward the recycle bins, creating a "U" pattern. It is important for parents to stop when exiting the cones from the drop off line because traffic will continue entering and exiting the lot. Since we are creating this "U" traffic pattern, families wishing to park may do on the other side of the cone barrier, closer to the ball field. This shift in parking will allow students to walk to the entrance avoiding the need to cross in front of or between traffic. A picture has been provided to assist in these directions. Our hope is this change will allow for a safer entrance into the school for all students. Thank you for your understanding.
