 SPRINGWOOD SCHOOL TRAFFIC UPDATE

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday the Kindergarten and Elementary traffic was cleared by 3:05. The high school was cleared by 3:15. We appreciate the cooperation of many as the traffic patterns have been altered this year.

Here are a few recommendations for the various combinations…

Parents of ONLY K4-1st grade…Dismissal time is 2:45…

1.    We encourage these parents to be first in line.

2.    Please bear to the right to enter the driveway of the Iris Long K4-1st Grade building.

3.    Please leave the entrance and exit area clear so exiting vehicles do not get blocked from departing.

Parents of BOTH K4-1st Grade & Grades 2-6…Dismissal time is 2:45 & 2:55

1.    We encourage these parents to avoid arriving before 2:55. The 10 minutes of wait time for the younger child is expected by the teachers.

Parents of ONLY Grades 2-6…Dismissal time is 2:55

1.    We encourage these parents to avoid arriving before 2:55. This will allow the 2:45 dismissal to happen without as much interference.

2.    Please always leave the entrance and exit area clear so exiting vehicles do not get blocked from departing.

3.    This pick up is in front of the Cam Lanier Jr. Elementary building

Parents of BOTH Grades 2-6 & 7-12…Dismissal time is 2:55 & 3:05

1.    We encourage these parents to avoid arriving before 3:05.  The 10 minutes of wait time for the younger child is expected by the teachers

2.    If arriving earlier it only blocks traffic after picking up your first child.

3.    This category should also plan to depart from the Elementary first then the Media Center. Some students in the grade level (2nd – 6th) who also have a sibling in the 7-12 category will be moved over to Media Center. Parents should avoid going from the Elementary Building to the High School parking area.

Parents of ONLY Grades 7-12… Dismissal time is 3:05

1.    These parents are urged to avoid arriving before 3:05

2.    All of these parents should proceed to the High School parking area.

Other Categories

We have a few parents with the combination of K4-1st & 7-12 students… We encourage these parents to arrive at 3:00 to avoid longer wait times.

This week is back-to-school week. Monday, we enjoyed two standing room only assemblies at the Open Houses, Tuesday, we had our annual prayer walk, and today we began the 2016-17 school year with a lot of smiles and excitement as we see great potential in the students at Springwood. Enrollment has increased for the 3rd consecutive year now surpassing the 300-student mark. Please pray for Springwood School as we endeavor each day to teach our students focusing on the mind, body, and spirit.
