​​Traffic Safety

Ensuring our students get to school safely is everyone’s responsibility. Please be mindful of crosswalks, parking rules and speed limits when you are near our schools, especially during the morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal times.​ ​​​​

Parking & Drop-Off

  • We ask all parents to exercise extreme care and caution when dropping their children off / picking their children up at school.  With buses parked in front of the school and parents pulling up in personal vehicles it is imperative that all drivers proceed slowly and follow the rules of the road. 
  • Currently, we have 8 school buses picking students up at the end of the school day in front of the school, as well as 3 school buses picking up in the parking lot. The buses arrive well before the bell and leave at 2:40. 
  • We encourage parents who are picking students up to arrive just after the buses leave. This will help ensure that students are not walking out dangerously between buses. 
  • Another alternative is to meet your child in the church parking lot. This lot is just south of the school and students will be safely away from the traffic. The church has given permission for us to use their parking lot in this manner. Please do not drop off or pick up students in the alley or school parking lot. 

Dismissal Times - Relatives / Friends Picking up Students

Please talk to your child about safety and family expectations for dismissal time, as the school does not provide supervision after 2:30 pm. All students are required to exit the building after school unless participating in a school-sponsored activity, sport, or club. We will not allow students to leave during school hours unless we have direct permission from parents / guardians. If you are sending a friend or relative to the school to pick up your child, please inform the school prior to pick-up, either in writing or by telephone. Unless notified in writing, students will be sent home as is normal for them. Parents are asked to come to the office to sign out students who are being picked up.

School Drop-Off

If you are driving your child to school, please do not park or drop your child off in front of the school between the two no parking signs. Please use visitor parking, in our parking lot (the spots at far west side of the lot) if you intend to stay longer than a minute or two. If you are dropping your child off at school please no U-turns in front of the school. Let’s choose safety over convenience.
