    Morning Carpool

    Carpool Dropoff Area - Junior Lot 

    Regular Carpool will not be allowed to drop off at the Main Entrance. Carpool drop off will only be allowed in the parking lot next to the bus loop.  Carpool dropoff is not allowed in the Senior Lot, Junior Lot, or by the Modular Units off Avent Ferry Road. 

    In the morning, all Carpool cars must enter the Athens Drive Magnet High School Parking Lot off Avent Ferry Road. Once a Carpool car has entered the Parking Lot, we are now forming two (2) lines of traffic and the driver must decide to follow the line of cars to the right or the line of cars to the left. 

    • The Line Of Cars To The Right (exit onto Athens Drive): This line will drop off their students prior to reaching the semi-circle. Once the students are dropped off, the driver will drive the car to turn right and head out of the school Parking Lot to exit onto Athens Drive. Drivers can take a left turn or a right turn onto Athens Drive. There is room to make two lanes so that traffic taking a right turn can move more freely. One point of caution—our students will be crossing the parking lot street in front of cars, so PLEASE be cautious, careful, and always watch out for students! Please also be cautious as our Special Transportation vehicles will be merging with our new carpool line to exit onto Athens Drive. Let’s be kind and courteous as we take care of each other in carpool line. 
    • The Line Of Cars To The Left (exit onto Avent Ferry Road – RIGHT TURN ONLY): This line will move up the parking lot, around our semi-circle, and down approximately halfway down the other side of the parking lot. We need all drivers to release their students from halfway down the other side of the parking lot through the semi-circle. Once those students are released and the cars have moved forward, I would ask all drivers to pull up as far as you can and NOT stop short to “quickly” drop your student off in the semi-circle. After dropping off your student, drivers need to move to the exit of the parking lot and now can ONLY TAKE A RIGHT TURN OUT OF THE PARKING LOT ONTO AVENT FERRY ROAD. There will be no more left turns allowed out of our morning carpool onto Avent Ferry Road.

    Afternoon Carpool
     
    Afternoon Carpool vehicles will enter from Avent Ferry Road. Vehicles should make one line of vehicles to pick-up students.  This line will move up the parking lot, around our semi-circle. All drivers will pick-up their students from halfway down the other side of the parking lot through the semi-circle. Once those students are picked-up and the cars have moved forward, drivers are asked to pull up as far as you can and NOT stop short to “quickly” pick-up your student in the semi-circle. After dropping off your student, drivers need to move to the exit of the parking lot. You may turn left OR right exiting onto Avent Ferry Road.
