Parking During Pick-Up/Drop-Off

As we enter our first full week of classes, I need to share some reminders on expectations during Pick-Up and Drop-Off. These reminders are specifically in regards to parking during these times.

  • Double parking on 52nd Avenue (or any street around Covington) is never allowed
  • Parking or stopping on the school-side of the street on 52nd Avenue is never allowed
  • There are designated crossing areas on 52nd Avenue and should use them when crossing the street

These expectations are to ensure the safety of our students and families and are expectations of Covington Elementary School and Oak Lawn.
