Arrival and Dismissal Reminders
TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM SCHOOL – TRAFFIC PATTERNS
To reduce traffic at arrival and dismissal times, we encourage students for whom bus transportation is an option to ride the bus. Riding the bus ensures timely arrival at school and helps reduce car-related congestion and safety concerns at arrival and dismissal times.
IF YOU DO DRIVE YOUR CHILD TO AND FROM SCHOOL, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE PROCEDURES:
a. Drop off/pick up students along the south curb of Cormorant Drive in front of the school. During arrival and dismissal, please travel one way on Cormorant, from west to east.
b. Please stay in your car as students exit or enter the car to help keep traffic moving.
c. For safety reasons, please make sure students enter/exit on the sidewalk side (not street side) of the car.
d. Please observe and follow the directions of the staff member supervising parent drop off and pick up. Please pull away in a timely and safe manner.
e. If you need to come into the school at dismissal or arrival times, please park in the neighborhood, avoiding pick-up and drop-off zone. Pay close attention to the no parking signage.
f. To ensure student safety, cars are not allowed to enter the parking lot during arrival and dismissal times, unless it is to access an ADA parking space.
g. Please be courteous of neighborhood homes. Please do not block driveways.
***We have had several close encounters of car-to-car accidents. Please use your blinker to indicate when you are pulling away from the curb and merging with moving traffic. LOOK before you merge.
