Pick Up/Drop Off Zones

posted Aug 23, 2018, 6:09 AM by Danielle Tuepker   [ updated Aug 23, 2018, 6:10 AM ]

To keep our students safe, please do not drive down Owens Street at the south end of the building while the students are loading in the evening and unloading in the morning.  The buses should have their stop signs out and visibility is blocked by the bus from both Evans and Owens Streets.  When picking up or dropping off students if a bus is parked on Owens Street, please turn left off of Evans onto Owens Street.  We changed the loading and unloading zone to alleviate congestion during periods of high traffic to make it safer for everybody around the school zone.  See the attached map for a visual aid.
