BES Driveway Update!

posted Dec 9, 2016, 12:34 PM by Melissa Ohlendorf

Dear Parents,

It has been brought to my attention by both teachers and parents, that our end of the day pick-up is not as safe as it could be.  So, we will be making some changes that will go into effect today.  

  • If you are getting out of your car, to pick-up your child(ren), you must park on Penfield and walk up the sidewalk to get your child.  We can’t have people getting out of their cars in the drive.  It is unsafe for everyone who is outside at that time.

  • The front drive will only be for one lane of cars (the lane closest to the building), just like in the morning. Please make sure to pull all the way up to the cone marked student pick-up area, to allow for as many students to enter cars as possible.  The outside lane can be used for parents to pull away after they have their child in the car.

  • Students can be getting in cars any where along the sidewalk between the front door and the North end of the building.

  • Cones will be set-up at the end of the drive in the 2nd lane to prevent a double lane pick-up line.

We are sorry for any inconvenience or longer dismissal times this may cause, but the safety of our students is our first priority.

Thank you,

Mrs. Black, BES Principal
