Carpool Update for Monday, 12/14/20

Posted by Christi Whiteside on 12/11/2020 1:00:00 PM

We’ve just been notified that our new driveway will be completed this weekend!  Starting Monday, December 14, all traffic will be moved to the new driveway.  Please read the important information below.
 
  • Enter campus as usual from One World Way.
  • Follow the new driveway behind the soccer field and move slowly as construction workers and vehicles will be crossing the lanes.
  • The lined outer 2 lanes will be two-way directional lanes for our use.  The inner lane will be for construction traffic only.  Stay in our lanes!

  • The new carpool pick-up and drop-off area will be located in the parking lot beside the current building.  
  • During carpool only, students will enter and exit the building at the parking lot side entrance with the double doors.  Carpool staff will help direct students.
  • At any time of day other than carpool, the temporary front door will be the side door behind the flagpole natural area, into the multipurpose room.  Banners indicating this entrance have been hung on the construction fencing.  A doorbell at this temporary entrance will notify the front office that someone is waiting.

  • If your child is late to school, please walk with him/her to the new entrance.  Do not allow a child to wait alone as it will take us a bit longer to let them in, and we do not want a child to be unsupervised especially during construction.
  • Packet pickup will now be located in a shed between the bleachers and the spirit rock (near the dumpster area).  Please be sure to tightly close the doors after you pick up packets.
 
We recognize that a construction project brings many inconveniences along the way.  This change is a bit of an inconvenience.  However, we are excited to take this significant step forward on our path to the new and improved ECS!
