Talk about it Tuesdays with your SRD’s 

Parents, this week I want us to tackle the topic of student drop-off and pick-up. Let me first say there is no perfect fix. It is a time consuming process that plagues every school. We do our best to keep traffic moving but our focus is our students. We will do what's necessary to keep our students safe. Hopefully by explaining some things we can eliminate safety concerns and help you to understand why we do what we do. 

 

Our main safety concerns:

  • When a student/parent-pedestrian is in the crosswalk there should be NO vehicular traffic. Even if they are not in the crosswalk you are crossing over. 
  • You can not drop off/pick up students on the side of the road. F.S.S. 316.1945 (1)(a)12

 

Elementary Parents.

-Elementary parents please have your pick up tag visible at all times. 

-Drive down the middle lane and show me your car tag and I will direct you to the outside pickup lane. 

 

Middle/High school parents 

-stay in the turn lane and wait for the drive to clear. 

-When dropping off, pull all the way to the end of the sidewalk, allowing more vehicles to drop off speeding the process up greatly. By stopping at the crosswalk/ gate only 2 cars can drop students off at a time. 

 

Please do not go into the neighborhood to make a u-turn. Our main concern for traffic flow is the traffic coming off 390. By keeping that lane open as long as possible we clear vehicles from the light, which in turn clears 390. The more we have to stop for traffic coming from the neighborhood the slower pick-up and drop-off takes. There is no reason for school traffic to be in the neighborhood. 

 

Let’s try not to park on the road to wait- F.S.S 316.1945(1)(a)1 . Park in the dirt parking lot or come a little later to pick your child up. 

 

One last note, Parents and student drivers please know that our goal is to not slow you down. We do not wish to make your experience any more stressful, in fact we are attempting to make your drop-off/pick-up easier. That said, we are focused on everyone and everything, therefore we likely see things you do not see. If we give a clear direction to stop please understand we are keeping everyone safe. Whether you agree with what we are asking or not please follow our signals. It is also a criminal violation to refuse to obey law enforcement 

(F.S.S 316.0712(3))

 

We know that every parent wants every student safe, please help us to make that happen!
