How to avoid an accident or traffic citation
The faculty and staff have noticed several near miss accidents and individuals risking traffic tickets as they enter the parking lot in the past few days. PLEASE review the following
and share them with anyone who drops off or picks up your child:
Entering the Parking Lot
The school has one entrance. It is the driveway closest to the church. The right hand lane of the entrance is reserved for making a right turn into the school; the left-hand lane of the entrance is reserved for cars making a left turn into the school.
If approaching the school from Highway 85 or Fruitvale Avenue, it is illegal to go around cars waiting to enter the right lane. The Sheriff's Department occasionally posts an offer in the median of the road and will ticket cars that pass around other waiting vehicles. If traffic is backed up beyond Fruitvale, the Sheriff recommends pulling on to Crestbrook, parking your car and entering from the creek path OR turning around in the library lot and re-entering the lot from the opposite direction.
