Traffic Logistics for pick-up and drop-off
The safety of your children is of utmost importance. It is recommended that for quick connections with your children at dismissal, parents/guardians park their cars along the side streets nearby and walk up to the school. Arranging for carpools or having students who live nearby walk together will help to alleviate traffic congestion. If you come into the lot, stay in your car in a single file. As in the morning, cars moving through the lot may not stop and leave their cars unattended. Children will not be allowed to walk into the parking lot. As they exit the building, they will be directed to walk along the sidewalk to the DROP OFF AREA and wait for you to pull up. Children are not to meet parents at the playground. That is an unsupervised area and it puts children in the line of danger with the car traffic. No child is to cross over the driveway to the parking lot. Parents will need to park their cars and walk up to the doors or remain in their cars in the pick-up line.
*Please note that the Township Ordinance 347-36c was added to prohibit all turns onto Shadow Lane between the hours of 7am-9am and 2pm-4pm on school days. Police will be present to enforce this and issue summonses as necessary. Protocol: 1. The pickup/drop off line at the front school entrance should be one single line that extends down Acorn Dr. toward Featherbed Lane. Using Shadow Lane is not permitted during drop-off and dismissal times. 2. If you utilize the pickup/ drop off line at the front of the school, please do not make left or right turns onto Shadow Lane to join this line. Instead, please turn onto Featherbed Lane from Raritan Road and join the end-of-the line on Acorn Dr. 3. While in the pickup/drop off line, please keep your car to the extreme right hand side of the roadway and allow any traffic not in the line to pass you. *If you park and walk up to the front or back of the school, please continue to do so; just please be cognizant of all, “No Parking” signs.
