Procedural Traffic Flow

Parents/guardians dropping off students or picking up will enter 4th street and immediately turn right. This will start the line to the front of the school.  Students will be dropped off before the sidewalk. The parking lot is only designed for 1 lane. Vehicles are not permitted to drive as if there are double lanes.  Vehicles are not permitted to park on the crosswalk. After dropping off or picking up students, cars will follow the path parallel to the fence and exit on 4th street. Vehicles are not permitted to park at the Boys & Girls Club and then to send students across the street.

Parents/guardians may park in the Parent Parking area and escort their children to the crosswalk. Enter the parking lot from 4th Street and go directly to the parent parking area.  Walk your child to the crosswalk.  Wait for a staff member to allow students to cross the street. Parents/guardians then exit the parking lot by following the one-way (east) direction to exit the parking lot. Students are not allowed to walk from the parent parking area to the crosswalk without an adult.

Daycare vans only - there is a designated space for daycare vans to park behind the cafeteria to pick up and drop off students. Parents/guardians are not permitted to drive to the cafeteria area parking.

Buses only - there is a designated space for buses to drop off and pick up students off of Dale Scott Avenue. Parents/guardians are not permitted to use this space.
