Procedures for Drop-Off and Pick-Up (2019-2020)
The primary drop-off and pick-up location for students is on Solomon St. inside the gates. Parents will enter the gate from Banks St. and will exit at Palmyra St. Vehicles driving on Banks St. toward Carrollton Ave. cannot make a left turn into the Solomon St. entrance.
Once inside the gate, parents are asked to stay to the left of the cones on Solomon St. for drop-off and pick-up. Vehicles should pull up as far as possible in the lane to keep the flow of traffic moving. Faculty entering the yard for parking will use the right lane. The drop-off and pick-up zone for students is on the far side of the faculty vehicle entrance and exit (see graphic below).
Parents are reminded not to arrive at school before 2:45 p.m. to pick up students on days with normal dismissal. This creates an unnecessary period each day in which cars impede the flow of traffic. Other than the line to enter the designated location for pick-up, there should be no stopping in the street that impedes the flow of traffic, especially in the bike lanes. Fines for parking in the bike lanes have recently increased to $300.
When picking up students later in the evening after an athletic and co-curricular event, parents are reminded not to double park along Banks St. At this time of evening, there are plenty of places to pull over in the parking lanes. Parents should arrange with their sons to be picked up in a location that does not impede traffic.
Parents and visitors who arrive on campus during the school day are asked to park in the Banks St. parking lot (next to the Roussel Building) and to enter the building at the iron gate on Banks St. All visitors coming onto campus during the school day will need to check-in with a valid driver’s license.
