Dear Johnston Families,
The following is just a gentle reminder about dismissal procedures. Remember, you only enter our driveway from the right lane on Rutgers. If a staff member asks you to pull out of the right lane and enter lane 2 in the driveway, you may do so, but only when asked. Otherwise, enter in the right lane from Rutgers and afterwards, if you need to go to lane 2, you may do so. Do not for any means, stop, park and leave your car in the right lane on Rutgers. This causes interruptions to the flow of the traffic. If you are doing this because your child is in the walk-up area, then your child really is a car pick-up child and your child's designation will be changed as such so that he or she will be waiting for you in our driveway instead of in the walk-ups area. Additionally, if you find yourself in the left lane, do not try to squeeze into the right lane when there is not really a space to do so. This may cause a fender-bender to occur. Plus, it is not safe as a child my jump in front of you even though we continue to insist that children use the crosswalks to cross the street. You will have to go to Harvard, turn right, and continue to Rochelle to re-enter the lane on the right side. Finally, parents who walk to pick up their children, may enter the far gate by the large playground to pick up their child. I see many parents and guardians crowding together on the sidewalk. This is not safe with all that traffic on Rutgers. If you are one of these parents or guardians, enter through the gate to pick up your child. Make sure the attending staff member knows that you are taking your child.
Attached to this message is the dismissal document that I had sent at the beginning of the year. I am including it again.
