Traffic Safety Reminders

Posted Feb 17, 2012 | Category: Wellness

This information was originally posted on February 17, 2012. Please note that the article refers to events from a previous school year.

After a recent review with Riverside Police of our drop off/pickup procedures we have some reminders to ensure the safety of our children and make drop off and pick up in particular as easy as possible.

A few important reminders:

  1. Arrive no earlier than 3:10 pm for pick up.  This allows your child to exit the school and be ready for pickup.  If you arrive earlier, you may be asked to circle the block while you wait for your child to exit the building.  If you would like to wait for your child on  the sidewalk or playground, please find a legal parking spot and feel free to do so.  Parking in front of the school on the side of Woodside that is closest to the school is not allowed.  That is a pickup zone and should be kept moving to ease the flow of pickup.  To avoid being asked to move your car, come no earlier than 3:10pm.
  2. Display your “name placard” in your front window.  When there is inclement (raining hard, heavy snow, etc.) weather at pick up, it is especially important to arrive no earlier than 3:10 pm, with the placard clearly displayed in your car front window.  In this circumstance, once the parent or caregiver arrives at pick up, your child will be released.
  3. Please remind your child to cross the street only at crosswalks supervised by crossing guards to ensure his/her safety.
  4. Please pass this info along to your caregiver and anyone else that may be picking up your child.  If you need a second placard for a caregiver please contact the office.
  5. Remember, the key to the success of this plan is COMPLIANCE!  Thank you for your cooperation with these procedures.

Please remember when dropping off and picking up:
