Safety Reminders for Vehicles and Pedestrians-SAFETY First

Dear Parents/Guardians,

To ensure the safety of our students, please review the morning drop-off procedures. Here are some quick reminders:

  • Cones have been implemented at the back gate. Please do not go around the cones to bypass the valet line. There have been some close calls with cars because of passing.
  • Please be patient and follow the system.-Back gate: Please do not park at the end of the cul-de-sac (park side) to drop off your children. We need the space for the valet line to turn around. When cars are parked in the cul-de-sac, the valet line has to do 3-point turns causing a back up.
  • Front and back gates: Please make sure your kids are ready to hop out of the car as soon as the door is opened, and pull forward as far as possible (front and back gates). Parents/Guardians, please do not get out of the car. The valet line needs to keep moving.
  • NO U-Turns in the middle of the streets or in driveways, especially the exit driveway at the front of the school. This holds up the flow and can cause accidents.
  • Please use crosswalks.

Thank you for your cooperation to help keep our students and families safe! Safety first!

~ Meadows Guardians and Principal Juliet Fine~
