Safety Matters

We ask that all drivers please be vigilant for the safety of our Patriots!


  • Please do not pull into the parking lot before or after school. Use street parking.
  • Yield to students at our crosswalk by the cafe.
  • Be prepared to stop at the marked crosswalk. Stay alert and reduce speed in this area.
  • Be alert for bicyclists and skateboarders whose approaches to the crosswalk may be much swifter than those of pedestrians.
  • Come to a complete stop if students are crossing or preparing to cross.
  • Never pass another vehicle that has stopped or is slowing down at the crosswalk.


Lane Intermediate is wedged between HWY 100 and S 109th Street. Before and after school S 109th Street can become very busy. The area for drop off in the AM is on the corner of S 109th Street and Madison. S 109th and Madison is also our supervised cross walk area - this is where ALL students need to be crossing S 109th before and/or after school.

If you need to come into the office area the northern most entrance is available. The south side entrance is blocked as that is our recess and student gathering area.


Any questions please let us know.
