Dismissal and Your Child's Safety at Sandburg

February 26, 2019

Please remember that the safety of the children is the number                 

one concern that all of us share.  With this in mind, following a few simple parking lot rules will help ensure that even the busiest traffic times are safe times for all the children.  Remember, saving a few seconds of your time is never more important than safety.

  • Traffic flow is one-way only.  Enter the parking lot from the north entrance only.  Exit through the south drive.  

  • Never pass a school bus that is loading or unloading students.  Not only is this dangerous, it is illegal.

  • If you pick up your child from school, pull into a marked parking spot and walk to the front of the school.  Do not leave your car anywhere else in the parking lot except in a marked parking spot.  Students have been instructed to wait for you in the “yellow safe zone” until you meet them there.

  • Never beckon a child to come across the parking lot to meet you.  Children are never allowed to walk onto the parking lot without an adult’s hand.

  • Whenever possible, use the sidewalk on the south side of the lot to walk the length of the parking lot.

Thank you for setting a good example for the children by following these safety rules.
