Parking Guidelines & Winter Driving Policy
Parents may park in front of our driveway if space is available, or along either side of Peter Parley Road. Cars should not be parked to block the driveways of our neighbors in any way. Please be willing to drive farther away from the school before pulling over or parking if spaces in close proximity are not available. There is usually quite a bit of parking father up the hill. Your courteous and safe driving habits are greatly appreciated.
In the event of a heavy snowfall, parking may become very limited. Carpooling or drop-offs and pick-ups without parking may be necessary to arrange. The following items pertain if we enact our Winter Driving Policy (announced on our answering machine and in effect until snow piles melt):
- From 8:00 to 9:00 a.m., we will travel on Peter Parley Road as a one-way (uphill) street. Parents are asked to “stop and drop” children as opposed to walking them inside the building. The staff will work to help children make their way inside, change boots, etc.
- Children scheduled for 3:30 p.m. pick-up will be dressed at 3:30 and ready to respond to a “stop and pick up” system instead of having parents come into school. As in the morning, between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. we will use Peter Parley Road as a one-way (uphill) street. If you want your child dressed and ready for a pick-up later than 3:30 p.m., please call or leave a note.
If you need to come inside the school in the morning or evening, please park in spaces other than in our driveway. When inside, please remove wet footwear before going upstairs or inside classrooms. This helps our carpet stay dry for small, slippered feet.
