CARPOOL UPDATES

1.    Buses will load/unload in the front circle of the school. (yellow)
2.    Car riders and daycare van riders will load/unload through the cafeteria entrance of the school. (green)
3.    No parking and walking up to receive students during afternoon dismissal.
4.    Parking and walking students to the door during morning arrival will still be allowed only using the side parking lot. (pink)
5.    During afternoon dismissal—cars will not be allowed to park beyond the crosswalk to wait in the carpool que until an employee releases you. (red “x”)
6.    The walking gate that enters the parking lot will be permanently closed. The walking gate that enters the field will remain accessible. (blue)
7.    The only entrance that should be used is at the light. The “bus entrance” gate will be closed in the morning. We are closing this entrance during morning arrival because, historically, merging hasn’t been successful throughout our parking lot.

Buses
•    Buses will load in the afternoon and unload in the mornings using the front entrance/circle.

Walkers
•    Students may still use the field walking entrance to walk to and from school.
•    The gate that enters into the parking lot will be permanently closed. This area will have heavy and consistent traffic during arrival and dismissal, which will create a significant safety hazard for our students and staff to attempt to use this entrance.

Car Line
•    We have increased the que significantly to relieve pressure from the light at State Bridge Road.
•    By dropping students off outside the cafeteria, we have greatly increased the number of students who will be able to exit the cars at one time.
•    These changes should improve the flow of traffic and improve the wait time in carpool que.
•    Be part of the solution by following staff directions and pulling all the way forward before allowing your student to exit/enter the car.
•    Students should be able to open car doors for themselves. There will not be enough staff to individually open car doors. This will improve the flow and timing of our carline que.
•    Students will enter/exit the building through the cafeteria.
•    Use only the entrance with the red light. The other entrance gate will be closed.

Parking and Walking Students
•    Parents will not be permitted to park and walk up to the school to receive students during afternoon dismissal.
•    Parents will still be permitted to park and walk students to the door during morning arrival using only the side parking lot. (pink)
•    Morning park & walk families will walk to the front door/circle of the school along the sidewalk.
