SMS Drop-Off/Pick-Up

  • SMS families will enter through the Fair Road entrance and follow the one-way traffic flow to drop off/pick up at the front of the building. 
  • As you approach the drop-off/pick-up area, signage directs drivers to the appropriate drop zone. 
  • After unloading/loading children, continue to follow the one-way traffic flow back out to Fair Road. 
  • Buses only will utilize the back parking lot of SMS, with gates keeping general traffic out between the hours of 6:00AM and 3:05PM. 
  • Please do not block business driveways, nor park in business lots (OSU Extension Office). They have the right to report, ticket, and tow on their property. 
  • Please, for the safety of all, do not drop off or pick up on the side of Fair Road. Not only is this unsafe it holds up traffic for other families. 
  • Families of SMS students are also welcome to utilize the SHS EAST drop-off. Students can safely walk to SMS via the Safety Sidewalk. Likewise, SMS students are welcome to walk to SHS for pick-up but families will have to use the parking lot while waiting. 
  • The temporary shuttle from the west side of the railroad bridge will stop November 26. Beginning December 2, students in those area neighborhoods will be able to walk across the railroad bridge again. 

***Please do not arrive before 2:15PM to wait in the pick-up lines. We need to keep the driveways open in case of emergencies or for families picking up students early for appointments.*** 

SMS Traffic Flow - December 2, 2019


SHS Drop-Off/Pick-Up

SHS has three drop-off/pick-up locations:

  • SHS EAST - the gym/auditorium entrance (Door 10) 
    • Families dropping off at this location should enter through the east driveway entrance off of Campbell Road (closest to Emerson) and circle the back of the parking lot around toward the gym to drop off at the EAST ENTRANCE. 
  • SHS NORTH- the main sliding door entrance (Door 3)
    • Families dropping off at this location should enter the west driveway off of Campbell Road and circle in front of the building, utilizing the sidewalk drop-off closest to the sliding doors to drop off at the NORTH ENTRANCE. 
  • SHS WEST - the cafeteria hallway entrance (Door 32)
    • Families dropping off at this location should enter the west driveway off of Campbell Road and drop off at the WEST ENTRANCE. Cars following this flow will follow along to exit out 4th Avenue. 
    • This location is also the pick-up/drop-off location for UVCC students. 

***Please do not arrive before 2:15PM to wait in the pick-up lines. We need to keep the driveways open in case of emergencies or for families picking up students early for appointments.***

SHS Traffic Flow - December 2019


Buses

Buses will drop off and pick up behind both SMS and SHS morning and afternoon. 

Only buses will be allowed in these lots between the hours of 6:00AM and 3:05PM. Gates will be utilized. 

As a result of going back to the previous drop-off/pick-up traffic flow for SHS and SMS, buses will drop-off earlier from SMS and SHS after school.
