Morning Parking Lot Procedures
Please follow the new morning parking lot procedure described below.
Please review these instructions and watch the video. The parking lot safety committee members will be directing traffic the first days. If you have any questions, please contact the office. It is critical that everyone who drops off or picks up your child is aware of these procedures. It is your responsibility to share this information with friends or family members.
Everyone enters the parking lot on Diamond Bridge Avenue and stays to the right of the cones. Proceed in a straight line to the end of the parking lot.
Then, if you are:
DROPPING OFF AT THE BACK DOOR
Follow cones curving right towards the back door.
Proceed to the back door.
Allow children to exit on driver’s side in front of back door.
Exit parking lot through the gate onto Washington Avenue
Or, if you are:
WALKING YOUR CHILD INTO THE BUILDING
Loop around the cones at the end of the aisle.
Proceed back down the first aisle (towards Diamond Bridge Ave).
Park only in the spaces in the first row.
Walk your child into the building.
Exit the parking lot onto Diamond Bridge Avenue
The preferred method is to drop your child off at the back door. All children in grades PK4-8 should use this method under normal circumstances.
Please arrive early. There is virtually no traffic between 7:50-8:00AM. Please do not try to “beat the bell” by arriving at 8:07AM!
New Afternoon Pick-Up Procedure s
All cars must back into the parking spaces along the brook.
Parking is allowed only by the brook and in the parking spaces closest to the garage towards the back of the parking lot. NO ONE is to park by or behind the school building.
Once the parking lot is closed (2:55PM), no cars are allowed in. NO ONE is to park at the entrance of the closed lot. Please report to your cars as soon as children are dismissed.
When the whistle blows, cars will be dismissed one section at a time, beginning with those furthest away from the building. All cars are to exit the parking lot through the gate onto Washington Ave.
As always, proceed with caution. Your child’s safety depends on it!
