Students riding in cars

Arrival: Vehicles should arrive at the school by approaching from Ridgeglen Way turning north onto Southpark Road. SEE MAP HERE   Please remember that during drop off and pick up times, vehicles are restricted to RIGHT TURNS ONLY both in and out of the parking lot to ensure student safety and to maintain traffic flow. Once in the parking lot, students can be dropped off beginning at the curve where the sidewalk starts.  If your child needs assistance unloading, use a carseat, or if there are multiple children in a car, please pull forward to the yellow zone.

Pick up: Please place a yellow placard with the last name of your student(s) on the passenger side (visor or dashboard) of your vehicle to assist with loading students.  We will load students in the yellow zone after school.All students must enter and exit the vehicles on the sidewalk side of the car so that they do not step into oncoming traffic.  Vehicles may only turn right into and out of the parking lot, in order to avoid a gridlock situation.
