Safety Precautions

 Designated Zone for Unloading Passengers

Buses and Vans Only

Staff person on duty from 8:15am-8:30am

A number of parents have voiced concerns about vehicles parking illegally, or driving unsafely, at arrival and dismissal time. There have been fender benders and near misses in both lots. Parents requested I blog about the expected routines, and urge everyone to proceed with caution.

We have a very small parking lot for employees. Since they start arriving at 7:30am, please do not park your vehicle in the lot after this time. Parents, and other visitors, should use the Crow Park lot off the main road.

Families may park in the Crowe Park lot and walk children to school, or they can unload passengers in the designated zone (see above picture of white lined area).  A staff member is on duty from 8:15am-8:30am to guide children. After unloading, please exit through Tiger Road. Do not attempt to turn in the road, or staff parking lot as this creates traffic jams and safety issues. Note: the curb near the school is a no parking zone.
No Parking Zone

We understand finding a parking spot is especially difficult on early release days. If you have to wait for a spot to open up, please don't worry we will have your children wait for you inside the office.

Many families have been biking to and from school with their children. I've noticed the adults all wear helmets- thank you!! You are wonderful role models for young children.
