New Car Loop/Parking Lot Access Procedure- 4/16/18

posted Apr 15, 2018, 4:59 PM by Laura Prymak
Hi Winterpock Families!
Thank you so much for helping us keep our students safe in the morning by continuing to wait in the line to access the parking lot. We know it’s not perfect, so Mrs. Dubiel and I have been brainstorming new ideas as we help direct traffic. We recognize that there is still a need to get into the parking lot before the car loop line starts moving in the morning and in the afternoon so we are going to try something new.
Starting tomorrow, Monday, April 16th, the following will be the new procedure for accessing the parking lot.
There will be a sign at the median where the buses turn to access the bus loop (next to the baseball field) that asks you to stop there if the car loop is full. Once the car loop is full in the morning or the afternoon, we are asking you to wait at this sign if you are dropping off or picking up your child. This will allow cars needing to access the parking lot before 8:05 a.m. or 2:55 p.m. to use the left turn lane to go around those of you waiting and safely access the right lane to enter one of our parking lots. Remember, we do not want anyone driving into oncoming traffic to access either parking lot!

Once the line starts moving at 8:05 a.m. or 2:55 p.m., you do not need to stop at the sign anymore. You should continue in the line as you normally would. If you need to access the parking lots after 8:05 a.m. or 2:55 p.m., you need to wait in the line to do so as the cars move ahead.
Mrs. Dubiel and I will be out in the driveway earlier to help with this new procedure. Look for us and for the new blue and white sign! :)

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either of us if you have any questions. We both thank you for your patience as we try and find a way to get everyone in and out both safely and timely!
