OUR TRAFFIC MOTTO: PLEASE BE KIND, COURTEOUS AND SAFE!   
                                        
 PLEASE FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES FOR STUDENT SAFETY AND SMOOTH TRAFFIC FLOW:

Dear Parents & Caregivers,                                                     

 

Where may I “drive through” to drop-off or pick-up my child?

o Cars will ENTER through the center entry way between Westhill and Sorenson. You will then turn left and pull all the way forward to allow the greatest number of cars to be in line. Students will unload/load from the curbside of the vehicle (passenger side).

o Cars will EXIT through the 4-way stop. PLEASE YIELD TO BUSES and CROSSWALKS. Follow the instructions of the parkling lot staff

  • Please note the traffic circle is for bus load/unload only! Do not drop off/pick up your students in the traffic circle.

o On days when parent traffic may be increased due to rain, parties or sports events, please plan for extra time in the drop-off/pick-up lane

 

Where may I park?

o Parking is available at Westhill and Sorenson (front/bus lane row at Sorenson is reserved for their staff only). ONLY buses may drive through the Sorenson bus lane.

o You may enter the parking lot via the center entry way or Sorenson's entry way. PLEASE YIELD TO BUSES and CROSSWALKS.

o Cars will EXIT through the 4-way stop or center entry way.

Use the crosswalk to get to and from the parking lot.

 

Where may I stand to meet my child?

o The parent waiting area is under cover area.. Please allow space for classes to pass by next to the wall.

 

My child rides the bus-where will they be picked-up/dropped-off at Westhill?

• Big buses will use the circle space around the flagpole (enter & exit at 4-way stop). Only buses may enter the 4-way stop, ANYONE may exit at the 4-way stop. Students waiting for the bus will wait on the south side of the building near the low concrete wall and gym.

• Small buses and daycare vans will drop-off & pick-up at Sorenson. They will enter through the north gate and exit through the center gate.

 

Car routes Bus routes

This is long-term work. Regardless of how we route cars and buses, the impact on 88th will not change. We will review this plan annually to adjust if needed. Thank you for keeping our students’ safety a top priority.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Dana Whitehurst. Principal
