Pause Parking Loop Procedures

This worked well last year and greatly reduced congestion.  In the mornings, students may be dropped off along the fencing near the cafeteria. At the end of the day, drivers can pause park along the fencing to pick up their student(s) when they come out at dismissal.

Please note the following rules for pause parking:

  • Drivers must remain in their cars at all times except for car seat fitting.
  • Drivers should pull forward as space becomes available.
  • Drivers should NOT stop in marked crosswalk areas.
  • When getting in or out of a car, students must use the door on the fenced side.
  • Students should never get in or out of a car on the driver’s side. It’s unsafe for the student and it slows traffic.
  • Drivers must remember to ALWAYS yield at the painted crosswalks and sidewalks.Screen Shot 2016-08-08 at 12.22.34 PM

  • Classroom teachers will meet students in the cafeteria (2nd – 5th) and the Kinder and 1st grade families will go to the classroom.
  • The cafeteria will have grab-and-go breakfasts for students before they meet their teacher.
  • Bilingual staff will be on-hand to help guide students and families.
  • The first bell will ring at 8:15. Director Lavin will make a brief announcement and classes will be dismissed to go to their classrooms.
