RE: NEW AFTERNOON PICKUP PROCEDURES EFFECTIVE THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 2017
In an effort to ensure the safety of our students and enhance the efficiency of parent pickup at Daniel Wright, we will implement a new pickup procedure effective Thursday, September 7, 2017.
A new and safer flashing crosswalk will be installed at the northernmost entrance to Daniel Wright in mid-October. When installation is completed students will NO longer use the crosswalk at the southern entrance to DW. Until the new crosswalk location takes effect this fall, please be cautious of students crossing in currently designated crosswalks.The new pickup and bus loading procedures are intended to not only provide optimal traffic flow but to prepare for safe crossing and pickup of students with the impending new crosswalk location.
On Thursday, September 7, 2017, buses will line up in the front entrance way of Daniel Wright. Parents who are picking up their children will enter the northernmost entrance and bare right to proceed counter-clockwise around the building. Traffic will be one way around the back of the building, and we are asking that vehicles wait along the left-hand curb.
Students should access waiting vehicles from the driver's side so they do not step into the right lane of traffic. Please do not park side-by-side, as the outermost lane must be left open in the event that emergency vehicles need to enter the campus. Please review the diagram to determine where would be the best exit door for your child. You can plan to wait in an area closest to that exit.
Once buses are loaded, all pickup traffic will be stopped to release the buses out of the southern entrance to Daniel Wright.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we may continue to tweak the process in preparation for the new crosswalk.
