The children’s safety is a concern to all of us. The expectation is that drivers will respond to traffic signs and they will be cautious when approaching the school area. As parents, it is reasonable to expect a safe “drop-off” zone for the children. Hence, the question: “Where can I stop in order to off load my child(ren)?” First, the drop off loops are ideal to drop off children in a safe and expedient manner. When dropping off children in this Kiss & Ride area, please be considerate of other vehicles by moving along quickly. Do not park and leave your vehicle unattended.
If you plan to watch/escort your JK/SK child, please do not park in the south loop. There is a north loop for JK/SK students only. Student helpers will escort JK/SK students to the Kindergarten yard.
Some parents may wish to drop off on the street but please do not park on Kingsmere Ave. You may be ticketed. Please note that for the crossing guard to be effective, cars need to leave a safe distance for the children to “see in each direction”. Please remember to not block or turn around/park in any private driveways .Please do not block or park too close to the school driveways. Busses need additional space to turn safely without clipping the front or back end of a stopped/parked car. U-turns are prohibited and would create a danger in any school area. As a gentle reminder, please ensure the safety of children by having them wear seatbelts correctly, at all times.
Thanks for your time and assistance in creating an even safer school.
