TRAFFIC LAWS FOR LOCAL SCHOOLS

Do not walk sign

The Police Department is asking that you familiarize yourselves with Crossing Guard/Crosswalk laws and obey them. It will help keep our schools organized and are for the sake of everyone's safety.

Exercise common courtesy and wait for the Crossing Guard. Let others pull out of parking spaces so traffic can flow - you can pull in and pick up your children at the pick-up areas more quickly. Also, please do not stop in the street and impede traffic when you can’t pull into a parking lot. Please go around the block and come back. This will allow traffic to flow. Train your children to wait for you to pull to the curb before loading. Explain that if you are unable to pull into the pick-up lot because it’s full, you will be going around the block and coming back to pick them up, so they don’t worry.

Traffic flows better if parents park on the street until a few minutes after they hear the dismissal bell, and then drive through the pickup lot to look for their children. If their children aren’t there, they should go around the block and come back. This allows other parents to come in, pick up their children, and leave. This maximizes the number of parents picking up their children in the minimum amount of time.

Remember that it is often quicker to park on the street, walk in, pick up your child, and walk out, than to get caught up in the congestion in the drop-off lots. It can save you several minutes, and often a lot of stress and frustration.

The following are traffic laws that relate to the Crossing Guard, as well as some etiquette issues relating to the Crossing Guard, and general traffic laws relevant to your school.
