WALKERS:  If you wish to walk your child to school, either from home or from having parked your car nearby, you may escort them to the rear grassy area behind the school, where they will be met by their teacher.  Walking to school is an excellent opportunity to show children the crosswalks and how to steer clear of the "car line."

Drop-off (Arrival)

DRIVERS/CAR LINE:
 

  • There will be “no parking in ALL the parking spots” near the playground at arrival time from 8:00 to 9:00 AM.
     

  • Car speed should be kept at 15 MPH. 
     

  • As you turn the horseshoe for drop off, you will notice that cones have been placed so that there is only one line of traffic.  All cars need to proceed in one single line to the yellow cone that abuts the sidewalk and school building. Parents should not park their cars or get out of their cars, as this is a moving line.  Parents should not create a second line of cars in order to park and get out of their cars. Staff and fifth grade students will assist your child/children to exit your car. 
     

  • If you are driving, turn onto Hardy Road and drive around the oval, following the car line.  Usually, 4-5 cars unload at a time, so if you are at the front of the line when the cars ahead of you pull away, pull up as far as you can to allow others behind you to unload curbside.  Children should exit from the passenger side of the car only.  If you are approaching from the North, you may only turn left onto Hardy Road if you can completely enter the street without blocking the crosswalk.   Please refrain from getting out of your car to assist children, as it slows down the car line.

    *** The teacher parking lot may NOT be used for dropoff.***

Pick-up (Departure)
 

WALKERS:  If walking, you may meet your child in the grassy area outside the doors facing Hardy Road. 


DRIVERS/CAR LINE:

  • An important change for dismissal is that there will be NO LEFT TURN onto Hardy Road. 
     

  • There will be “no parking in ALL the parking spots” near the playground at dismissal time from 2:45 to 3:45 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and from 11:30 to 12:30 on Wednesday. As you turn the horseshoe for pick up, there will be a staff member, at the playground end of the building, who will direct you to move up at the appropriate time.  All cars need to proceed in one single line to the yellow cone that abuts the sidewalk and school building. Parents should not park their cars or get out of their cars, as this is a moving line.  Parents should not create a second line of cars in order to park and get out of their cars. Staff and fifth grade students will assist your child/children to board your car.
     

  • During dismissal there will be NO LEFT TURN at the top of Hardy Road.  EVERYONE MUST TAKE A RIGHT so that traffic will flow faster.
     

  • PleaseIf driving, place a sign card on your dashboard with your child's' name, and follow the oval to the pick up area. You may only turn left onto Hardy Road if you can completely enter the street without blocking the crosswalk.  You may not wait to turn left when the cars on Hardy Road are parked up to the crosswalk and are stationary, waiting for the bell to ring and the car line to advance.  If you are unable to turn, please safely turn around on a side-street or park on a side-street and walk to the WALKER pick up area.

    *** The teacher parking lot may NOT be used for pickup.***
