Parent Pickup

We're working on more ways to keep our Gables neighborhood safe during afternoon dismissal. While we're in the process, thank you for continuing to:

  1. Park on Willoughby St if you are walking to the building. Do NOT park on Becket Ave or the west side of Hollister St; this creates a dangerous situation for children who walk home and for buses turning into Becket Ave.
  2. Not turn left onto Becket from Hollister. Take Godown Rd to Lorraine or Slade and join the car line coming south on Hollister.
  3. Not leave gaps while leaving driveways clear. When you get to the school door, continue forward in the parking lot to the front of the building (continue closing gaps between cars) - the kids can still reach your vehicle safely and we can help several families at the same time.
  4. If possible, write your child(ren)'s name and grade(s) in large print on a sheet of paper and place it in your front window when you get close to the school.
