Traffic Procedures and Parking
Traffic patterns for student drop-off and pick-up

Morning drop-off

Middle school drop-off is first and should proceed as follows;
Vehicles enter the school campus from Balsam Ave. by the second (south) entrance. They then proceed around the perimeter of the property using both lanes in an orderly manner until they arrive at the unloading zone. Vehicles should not arrive before 7:45 am to drop off middle school students. Students that are dropped off and left at the gates prior to 7:40 am will be escorted to Champions and required to pay for the service because we do not provide supervision for students dropped off this early. Student drop-off will begin at 7:45 am and proceed until 8:00 am. For safety reasons, all cars are brought to a complete stop inside unloading zone before students are allowed to exit and proceed to the field. All vehicles are then moved forward so the next group can be staged. The vehicles exit by turning right back on to Balsam Ave. and then right on Red Coach Ave.
Parents who walk up to the walking gate are asked to stay in the widest part of the sidewalk by the building wall so that car pool students can use the sidewalk to walk to an open gate to enter the playground.

Elementary Drop-off

Elementary Drop-off is the same as Middle School drop-off. As a reminder, Elementary vehicles should not enter the property until 8:05 am after middle school vehicles have completed drop-off. The vehicles may then enter the car-loop and progress around the perimeter of the property using both lanes. Students that are dropped off and left at the gates prior to 8:10 am will be escorted to Champions and required to pay for the service because we do not provide supervision for students dropped off this early. For safety reasons, all vehicles are brought to a complete stop inside the unloading zone before students are allowed to exit and proceed to the field. All vehicles are then moved forward so the next group can be staged. Parents are required to stay inside their vehicles at all times. When unloaded, the vehicles exit by turning right back on to Balsam Ave. and then right on Red Coach Ave.
Parents who walk up to the walking gate are asked to stay in the widest part of the sidewalk by the building wall so that car pool students can use the sidewalk to walk to an open gate to enter the playground.

Dismissal 1

Dismissals use a different pattern for traffic flow. The first lane closest to the building is for kindergarten pick-up only. Vehicles that back-up onto Balsam Ave. will remain on the left side of the road until the Lone Mountain loading zone exit is reached. At this point, the vehicles picking up kindergarten students will “CROSSOVER” to the right side of the road. They will not block the road because the main pickup vehicles must be able to navigate to their traffic lane. Also, business access should not be interrupted. Kindergarten pick-up vehicles will be turning left at the corner of the kindergarten playground into the first parking lot entrance, which is the beginning of their loading zone. They will pick up their kindergarten student, as well as all other students that ride in the carpool, from the kindergarten loading zone. Once loaded, the kindergarten carpool vehicle will proceed to exit on Rainbow Blvd. If students need to buckle up, vehicles may stop in the parking stalls on the left side of the exit corridor to buckle students into their seat belt. All kindergarten cars are asked to only turn right to allow all vehicles to exit quickly. Parents parking in the school’s parking lot will be expected to wait until all kindergarten pickup vehicles have picked up and exited, - approximate time of 2:40 pm, or 3:40 pm for Dismissal 2.
After the kindergarten lane turns into the parking lot, the main pick-up vehicles may expand into two lanes and proceed around the car-loop the same as in the morning. When vehicles reach the loading zone, their carpool students will be escorted to the vehicles by school personnel. Please do not arrive before 2:10 pm to begin lining up. To keep the fire lane open, we will stop the main car-loop in the lanes at the red fire zone until 2:20 pm. At that time, the vehicles may pull ahead to the loading zone. For safety reasons, all cars are brought to a complete stop inside loading zone before students are allowed to load. All vehicles are then moved forward to exit while the next wave is staged. The vehicles exit by turning right back on to Balsam Ave. and then right on Red Coach Ave.
If the carpool picks up at the Kindergarten loading zone, please always pick up there even if the kindergarten student is absent.

Parents who are picking up their children from the walking gate are asked to stay in the widest part of the sidewalk by the building wall so that students can see the vehicles inside the car loading zone. If the students are sitting down on the turf with their class, they should be picked up in a vehicle. Walkers will exit through the gate to be reunited with parents at a predetermined place, (NOT THE WALKING GATE). We encourage parents and the students to find a common meeting place away from the, i.e. the flagpole or a specific habit paw on the sidewalk.

If parents are late for pick-up, students that are still waiting will be taken to Champions at 2:45 pm; and parents will be required to pay for the service. If any of our Lone Mountain students are unsupervised on or around the school campus (church property included), they will also be taken to Champions; and parents will be also required to pay for the service.

Dismissal 2 is an exact repeat of Dismissal 1 except for times.
