Pick up, Drop off and Parking

We will have two zones to do our students screenings:

PR (Walk-ups) and Horseshoe loop (Car Drop Off). Temperature checks should be done at home. When students come to school, a staff member will ask them screening questions. If a temperature check was not completed at home, one will be done by a staff member.

Flow of Traffic Directions:
In order to not obstruct any traffic on Martincoit in any direction, we are asking families to follow the flow of traffic list below. All cars, whether traveling north or south on Martincoit, will enter one of the parking lots across the street from the school. From there, families will drive through the parking lot and wrap around to exit from the middle driveway. Staff will direct cars, when they can exit the parking lot and enter the horseshoe loop.

Students should be ready to exit the car on their own with all of their belongings as you enter the loop. Once the student exits the car, we will ask parents to pull out of the loop and exit north on Martincoit.
We will need to get more than 400 students in through this process. We ask that all families adhere to the following:
  1. ONLY students exit the car, no exceptions.
  2. Students need to have their belongings with them in the car (not in the trunk) and be ready to exit.
  3. Masks should be on the student when you enter the loop.
  4. Please say all of your goodbyes, hugs, etc. prior to entering the loop.

We ask this, so the flow of traffic continues to move, as well as optimizing the amount of time students have to work with their teachers while on campus. A visual map is attached for you to review. Please also review the map with your child.
