New Carpool Morning Drop-Off Procedure

On Monday, March 18, a new carpool drop-off procedure was piloted to help alleviate morning congestion. Early reports have been very positive. This will continue to work if several parameters are followed. We have included a map to describe the flow of traffic; please find it on our RHPTA website at www.rhpta.com/morning-carpool-pilot.
 
Please note the following expectations for morning carpool drop-off starting March 18:
  • The new, 2nd morning drop-off location in the staff parking lot will open for drop-off at 7:30 a.m. Students who are dropped off before 7:30 a.m. will need to follow the normal routine of being dropped off at the front of the school.
  • After 7:30 a.m., parents will have two options for drop-off. A staff member will be located at the corner of Angus and Cumberland to direct the flow of traffic.
  • Cumberland Road – This is the regular morning drop-off location.
  • Staff parking lot off Angus – At this new morning drop-off location, students will be dropped off and directed through the playground gate to enter through the library. This is for students only. Parents who walk their children to class will still be required to enter through the front door.
  • If you are directed to drop-off in the parking lot, you will not be able to turn back to Cumberland off of Angus after you have dropped your child off. Please continue down Angus. This will help with congestion at the corner of Stonedale and Cumberland.
  • Please DO NOT park on Angus during carpool. We need to keep Angus free of parked cars to help with the two-way traffic flow.
  • The back parking lot drop-off ends at 7:50 a.m., as staff members must report to classroom duties. After 7:50 a.m., please follow normal procedures to drop-off at the front of the school. As a reminder, students are tardy if they report to class after 7:50 a.m.
