PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES TO HELP KEEP ALL STUDENTS SAFE, ESPECIALLY YOUR CHILD!

FRONT DRIVEWAY

Traffic will continue to flow from south to north. Please let your children out of the car and pick them up on the curb side only. Please pull forward as far as possible.

PLEASE DO NOT EVER LEAVE YOUR CAR UNATTENDED

A teacher or safety patrol will assist your child to the car. Students and parents must cross at designated crosswalks only. If you must come inside, please park in the parking lot. Kindergarten pickup will continue to be in the front. CARS WILL EXIT SOUTH ONLY ONTO PARK SPRINGS FROM THE FRONT DRIVEWAY. The cones mark the lanes; please do not cross the cones or run over the cones!

SOUTH PARKING LOT

Traffic flow will continue as usual in a counterclockwise pattern. Cones will be set up to block off the area in front of the bike racks, handicap parking areas, and curbs. PLEASE MOVE ALL THE WAY AROUND THE PARKING LOT AND BEGIN DROPPING OFF AND PICKING UP STUDENTS IN THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF THE SOUTH PARKING LOT NEAR WHERE THE TRASH DUMPSTERS AND RECYCLE BINS ARE LOCATED. Students will walk their bikes on campus at all times. Please do not block teachers’ cars with unattended vehicles; frequently teachers must leave for meetings or appointments. Please do not remove cones reserving teacher’s spaces.

BOLES PARKING LOT

Students may continue to use this route and enter or exit through the back gate on foot or on bikes.

THE NORTH LOOP

This is the bus pick-up and drop-off area. Please yield to buses! Buses and day care vehicles will only be allowed curbside near the building. Never block the entrance to the North Loop. Never leave your car unattended. Please note that parking in the North Loop is reserved for staff parking only. Students should ALWAYS enter and exit curbside. Safety Patrol will walk your child across the crosswalk. CARS LEAVING THE NORTH LOOP WILL EXIT ONLY TO THE LEFT (NORTH) ON PARK SPRINGS OR STRAIGHT ACROSS TO COLLARD. NEVER ASK YOUR CHILD TO GET IN YOUR CAR WHILE THE CAR IS ON PARK SPRINGS BLVD. AT ANY TIME! THIS IS SO DANGEROUS!!! PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE GRASS OR ON THE WHITE TOP AREA NEAR THE GYM. THAT IS A KID ZONE, NO CARS ALLOWED FOR THEIR SAFETY, PLEASE!!!!!

Please be attentive and aware at all times.

TALK TO YOUR CHILD, NOT YOUR PHONE!
