Traffic/Parking Lot Safety Reminders

*Please discuss these important safety reminders with your students if they walk or ride their bike to/from school.* For their safety and the safety of others, students need to follow all traffic safety laws when traveling to and from school.  This is especially important for students crossing major intersections.

  • Reminders for students WALKING to/from school:
    • Wait at traffic signals (do NOT cross when time has run out)
    • Use crosswalks and cross completely (do NOT cut through the intersection diagonally)
    • Stay on the sidewalk
    • Watch for vehicles and try to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street
  • Reminders for students RIDING BIKES/SKATEBOARDS to/from school:
    • Wait at traffic signals
    • WALK bikes across the crosswalk
    • Ride on the right side of the road
    • Use crosswalks and cross completely (do NOT cut through the intersection diagonally)
    • Watch for other vehicles and try to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street
    • Students MUST wear a helmet
  • Parking Lot Safety
    • Please drive SLOWLY while entering, exiting, and driving through our lot and surrounding neighborhood
    • Please stay alert and off and off your cell phones while driving in our parking lot. 
    • Please be vigilant and respectful of other motorists, cyclists, school staff, crossing guards and pedestrians
    • Please observe & comply with directional arrows in entrances and aisles
    • Please do not stop your car in a through lane
    • Please do not park your car or block the bus lane
    • Please pull forward as far as possible in the parking lot before stopping to let your child in/out of the car.
    •  Remember that there is no left turn allowed onto Michelson from our parking – you can be ticketed by IPD.
    • Consider having your child walk, ride a bike/scooter, or meet at a (slightly) off campus location to decrease congestion in our lot.

 

 

There are two entrances/exits to our parking lot during drop off and pick up. One is located off of Yale and the other is located on Michelson closest to the tennis courts.
