SAFETY REMINDER AT PICK UP
PICK UP AND DROP OFF POLICY
The policy regarding the drop-off and pick-up of students at Community School was developed in cooperation with the Cumberland Police Department.
Parents dropping students off in the morning (between 8:45 and 9:00) must proceed to Sun Valley Drive. Cars enter the parking lot and make a loop on the blacktop area. Children can be dropped off along the side of the building and walk inside the gated area. Cars then complete the loop and exit besides the building to the left. Please do not park on the blacktop.
During regular arrival and dismissal times, no students should be dropped off or picked up using the front entrance to the building.
Any students being dropped off or picked up after 9:00 will need to enter the front of the building. After 9:00, students must be escorted to the office by a parent. Visitor parking areas may be utilized at that time. Parents are expected to escort children to the office to attain a late slip.
Parents picking students up in the afternoon will again enter through the rear parking lot between 3:05 and 3:25 pm. No parking will be permitted in the recess yard. Parents may enter the gymnasium area after 3:25 (Wednesday 2:20). Parking spots are limited so please be mindful to park between spaces as indicated. If spaces are full, please leave the parking lot and park on Sun Valley Drive.
PLEASE do not park on the grass or in the travel lane. We must all work together to keep a safe school!
Faculty parking areas will consist of rear parking lot as well as non-posted areas in front of the school.
Handicapped parking is indicated at the front of the building.
Staff and police parking are designated. Please do not park in these designated spots.
Short term visitor parking is available in front of the school in indicated areas.
NO PARKING is permitted in FIRE LANES, i.e., Arnold Mills Road, the circular drive at the main entrance and the east side of the school.
Circular drive at the main entrance is restricted to permit school busses only.
Please remember that there is only a small window of time before instruction begins and students must be in their classrooms prior to the 9:00 bell.
Thank you very much for your cooperation. Safety of our students is always our top priority.
