CARPOOL TRAFFIC REMINDERS

During morning carpool arrival, use ONLY one lane, the right lane for dropping off students.

During afternoon carpool, start with two lanes that will merge into one lane. Cars will alternate at the merge.

Avoid skipping the line. This does not help you to get your child faster. It will slow down the line and prevent your child from standing at the correct “planet”.

Thank you for not passing cars while students are loading into their cars. This ensures students and staff are safe.
