Dismissal Changes are Helping!
Thank you to everyone who has adjusted their pick up times by delaying their arrival even by a couple of minutes! We have already seen improvements with the flow of traffic both in the parking lot and on Weidman Road. Another way to keep traffic moving and to ensure the safety of all students, we ask that all parents please remain in your cars while in the pick up line. The situation can become dangerous for students and staff and our main goal is always the safety of our community. Thank you for your cooperation. 

Original Post: 
You may have noticed that we have been experiencing a back up onto Weidman Road at dismissal time. We understand that many of our families prefer picking up their student from school. Having said that, the backup onto Weidman has posed some unsafe traffic situations. Therefore, we are asking our families to consider the following options to help:
1- Please consider delaying your arrival at school by a few minutes. While we dismiss at 4:00, we have a few families that arrive at 4:05 for a traffic-free pick up.
2- Please consider approaching school from Carman Road. The North-bound lane on Weidman offers a turn lane where cars can safely wait for entrance into the school grounds. The South-bound lane does not offer the same option as it is a right turn from that direction.   
We appreciate any adjustment to your pick-up schedule that helps alleviate some of the traffic back up onto Weidman and keeping dismissal a safe process for all!
