The Keys To Learning

Spring Break Edition

Wishing you a fun & safe Spring Break!

Students return Monday, April 14.


On Monday, April 14th we will open our new car rider lane for arrival and dismissal. This new traffic pattern is due to the high volume of parents bringing their children to school and picking them up in the afternoon. As always, I strongly encourage you to utilize bus transportation to and from school for your children.

We now have a 3rd entrance to our school. Please take notice that the new entrance is located at the power towers to the left of our school. This new driveway will be used between 7:45 AM - 8:15 AM and 3:10 PM - 3:50 PM. The other hours of the school day, please continue to use the original parking lot entrance to the school.

The new driveway has two one-way traffic lanes that are to be used. If you are coming to school using Arcado Road from Lilburn Stone Mountain Road, you will turn left and use the left hand lane of the driveway. Coming down Arcado Road from Rockbridge Road, you will turn right and use the right hand lane of the driveway. There will be NO lane changing once you are in the car rider line.

You will need to obey all traffic signs including the STOP sign where the new drive comes into the existing school parking lot. During arrival and dismissal a school employee will be at the intersection to direct traffic. It is imperative you watch and follow the directions. Failure to follow directions/commands could result in one or all of the following, 1) a traffic accident 2) ticketing by the police and/or 3) car rider privileges revoked.

Again, this new traffic plan will begin Monday, April 14th. We appreciate your patience as we learn how to manage and control this new plan.
