As we enter the new school year and re-establish our routines of pick up and drop off we wanted to offer a few reminders and suggestions. Thanks for taking the time to consider these as we work together to keep our processes safe and as stress free as possible!
The doors open at 8:20. Classes begin at 8:30. Students can be dropped off at 8:15.
The lane adjacent to the school is for drop off and pick up only. Please no stopping, standing or idling in this lane. Please do not begin waiting in this lane prior to 3:20 at the end of the day. This is a fire lane and in the event of an emergency, we would need to get emergency vehicles into this lane.
The front drop off can be quite congested and we continue to have concerns about the level of air pollution as students enter the building. Please consider the following to help out:
Walk, bike or ride the bus to school.
Park on one of our adjacent streets and walk your child into the school. Please do not block driveways of our neighbors while doing this!
Park over at Safeway parking lot and take a nice stroll into school in the morning. We have several families doing this now and the morning walk has many benefits.
If you have to come to the front of the building to drop off, please have your child prepared to exit the vehicle so that you do not have to stop in the drop off lane to help them get out of the car. If we can keep the cars moving all goes well but in our short window, just a few cars stopping can have a significant impact on the flow of traffic.
Please slow down while in the area. We have worked hard to get stop signs on our various corners and the City of Boulder has made it clear that this is not going to happen. So, it is up to us to keep our kids safe as they cross any of the streets surrounding the school.
Please do not drop your student on the opposite side of the street. And, if you do park, where you will need to cross the street, please do so at the corners.
We so appreciate your attention to this matter. The last thing we want is an injury that could be prevented.
