Pick up, Drop off and Parking

               We have created a drop off and pick up plan that will help to alleviate some of the congestion that usually happens on Martincoit in the mornings and afternoons. Please read below for the options for drop off and pick up for the 2021-2022 school year.

If driving north on Martincoit Rd:

          If you are driving north on Marticoit you can still use the loading zones in front of the ESS building for, drop off and pick up. You may also use the south parking lot to drop off. Please pull into the south lot, stop to drop off your children (Please pull up to the open spots near the end of the drop zone to allow more cars to come in to drop off), and then turn left and go down the exiting driveway in the south parking lot. Please note that you will only be able to exit going south on Martincoit. (Also note that if you are traveling north on Martincoit then you cannot use the horseshoe driveway for drop-off or pick-up. This will back up traffic as well as hinder our crosswalk.) 

If driving south on Martincoit Rd:


          If you are driving, south on Martincoit you may enter the north parking lot for drop off and pick up. Please pull all the way forward and wait to be directed towards the horseshoe loop. The horseshoe loop is the pick-up and drop-off zone in front of the school. Please pull forward to the furthest position in the horseshoe to allow for the flow of traffic to continue. Please do not leave your car, as we need to ensure that the line moves quickly for other families. When exiting the horseshoe, you may only turn right and drive north on to Martincoit.

Please help us during this time and remember the following:
  • Please do not park or leave your vehicle for any reason in any of our drop zone areas.
  • Please do not line up for pick up until 3:15pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, or 1:25 on Thursday.
  • Remind your child to walk along the marked safe paths to ensure that they get to and from school safely.
  • Please pull as far forward as you can to help more families access the drop off and pick up zones during peak hours
  • The North Parking lot across the street from the school is staff parking only at this time.
  • Main Gate will be open for all students to enter each morning starting at 8:30.
