Carline Map & Reminders

Wonderful job in following the new carline stacking through the park and for arriving at your designated pick up times for dismissal. We are finally seeing the break between the two dismissal windows which facilitates a smoother dismissal for all families.

***Reminder that elementary clubs end at 4PM, do not arrive before that time.

Dismissal reminders...

1) Enter the campus from Flamingo Road and proceed into Flamingo West Park. Follow cones down the 5th lane and then back up the 3rd lane. Upon exiting park, make a right and proceed underneath the Franklin Academy arch to enter the queue lanes. For your safety, and to abide by traffic laws, do not wait or park on the shoulder of Flamingo Road to wait for dismissal. Do not enter the bus loop lane or the parking lot.

2) Do not park your vehicle and walk in; do not leave your vehicle idling or parked curbside; do not park offsite or in any “No Stopping” or “No Parking” Zones.

3) The dashboard placard (provided to you) with your child’s name must be displayed on the passenger side dashboard the entire time your vehicle is on campus.

4) Do not use your cellphone while in the car lane; please look for and follow staff’s direction at all times.

5) Upon reaching the pick-up / drop-off curb, pull all the way forward to allow additional vehicles to queue behind you; your child(ren) should be watching for you and follow you to your forward stopping point.

6) Once child(ren) is/are loaded, carefully pull into the by-pass lane to exit.
