Drop-off and Pick-up on the Hancock Street side

Thank you for all of your help and support as we work to improve the safety and efficiency of pick up and drop off on the Hancock Street side of the building. A few reminders:

  • Parents/guardians should use the loop on the side of the building . (Please see the map attached at the link on the top of this newsletter.)
  • At pick up time in the afternoon, cars will not be allowed on campus until after 3:00 so as not to interfere with bus pick up - if you need to pick up right at 2:50, please use the Sedge Road entrance - this applies even in the resource officer is not at the Hancock St. rotary
  • At all times, traffic coming on site via Hancock Street will queue in one lane and there will be no passing.
  • As always, we ask that you drive cautiously in our parking lots in order to ensure the safe arrival and dismissal of our students. In addition, we ask that you follow the directions given by the staff who are out on traffic duty.
  • Again - we are incredibly appreciative of your understanding as we work to find the safest and most efficient drop-off and pick-up plan.


Please note that the Diamond Absence email has changed to diamondabsence@lexingtonma.org.

You can report absences, late arrivals and dismissals via this email.
