Remember that the no cell phone use in a school zone includes ALL of the campus too, including while in the car rider line.
Attention car rider line families: It is very helpful when picking up your student each day to utilize the school provided car tag clearly visible on the visor through the front windshield for identification purposes please. If you need a car tag please contact the homeroom teacher of your student(s). Also, please pull up as close as possible to the vehicle in front of you to allow for more folks to be off of Quail Run Road and on campus property.
All car rider vehicles are asked to pull all the way forward in the appropriate line and leave little space between vehicles and park close to the curb to limit possible movement of students between vehicles. If your student is a designated walker, please do not park your car in the parking lot and come to the entrance to retrieve them, they are a car rider and should be picked up in the designated car rider line. If they are a walker, please use the west sidewalk along the pit and crosswalk to pick them up on a neighborhood street.
Parking and walking up to the building causes delays in the vehicle traffic and could lead to tardies in the morning and frustrated adults in the afternoon. No one should park their vehicle, walk to the building and pick up their student, and then walk back to their vehicle and pull out into car rider traffic. When coming from the west, be sure to follow the outer curb the entire time you are in line and not travel up and down the rows of parked cars as this is a safety issue. Please also be aware of the state laws about expanded no cell phone usage around schools and the higher fines for passing stopped school buses.
In the daily comings and goings to and from campus, thank you for following the law in regards to not parking in fire lanes and identified accessible spaces. This includes during arrivals and dismissals for the safety of all and consistent movement of traffic.
Thank you for your continued support of Liberty, positive communication, and willingness to work together!
