Traffic Loop Update - Sept. 12

posted Sep 12, 2016, 7:42 PM by Lisa Griffin
Please reference Loop version 3.0. and see this important update from our safety expert Doug Ryan.

GREEN ZONE:
  1. This is for parking and walking kids in only.
  2. Get to sidewalk safely and do not walk in the middle of the driveway. Use sidewalks when you can and make your way to the designated crosswalks. We spent a lot of money putting in big ankle twisting boulders to prevent people from darting out in the main drop off lanes.
  3. When returning to your car use the same crosswalk to get back to your car.
  4. Secondary students can also use this as PARKING and letting kids out. Please inform them to use the crosswalk and don't cut through the ankle twisting boulders of death.
  5. DO NOT RUN THROUGH THE YELLOW ZONE! CROSS ONLY AT THE CROSSWALK!
YELLOW ZONE:
  1. This is DROP OFF AND PICK UP ONLY. Stay in your car, have your kids ready to get out of the car once you are stopped. This should be a quick process with no one need more than 1530 seconds. If you have to get out of the car please use the Green Zone.
  2. When dropping off pull as far forward as you can and try to have your kids exit the vehicle on the passenger's side. You can pull up as far as there is sidewalk between both buildings and kids can walk to their individual school.
  3. NEVER DROP OFF IN THE LEFT LANE. ONLY AT THE CURB!
  4. Try to come a little early even on windsock days. ESPECIALLY ON WINDSOCK DAYS.
  5. Make sure kids are ready to exit the car as quickly as possible. Make sure they have finished breakfast, have all their cloths on and are ready for school. Blow kisses and get em out. MAKE SURE YOU STOP FIRST. The drop and roll thing comes when they hit high school. You'll understand later.
RED ZONE:
  1. Before school a crossing guard will stand in the crosswalk and cross large groups of pedestrians. Please watch for the stop sign as you approach the back of the building.
  2. Please have your kids exit car before and move to the sidewalk as quickly as possible. Wait for a crossing guard to cross them.
  3. Cross only at the crosswalk and no dropping off in the crosswalk.
  4. Please do not block through lanes and disrupt flow to the exit. If you stop to pick up make sure cars can get around you so exit flow is not disrupted. 
PLEASE REFRAIN FROM USING YOUR PHONE FOR THE 10 MIN YOU GO THROUGH THE LOOP!!!

We are only 3 weeks into the year so more little tweaks will be sure to come. Please follow these little tips and I'm sure it will get better. Always be patient positive and safe!!!

Thanks,
Doug Ryan
