Parking Lot Safety & Procedures
In the morning, teacher-supervised drop off begins at 7:50 and ends at 8:00 a.m.
To facilitate a safe drop off, there is NO PARKING on Gould Street in front of the school. You may drop off students at the designated area in front of the school between the two orange cones.
No cars may enter the school driveway from 7:45 through 8:05 a.m. Please always exercise caution when entering the school driveway and parking area, whether for ECP drop-off in the morning or for the afternoon car line, as children may be present. The gate to the school driveway will be closed during this time.
Please do not park on the eastbound side of Gould Street (opposite from the school) as it impedes the flow of traffic on Gould Street.
In the afternoon, parents picking up students from the ECP who drive into the school driveway and parking area must wait for the car lines to begin moving before attempting to exit the parking area. There are families, including younger siblings and other children, on the far side of the school, waiting to pick up students in Grades K-8 and it is not safe to drive through that area after approximately 1:45 p.m. The car line generally begins moving around 2:15 p.m.
If at any time that you arrive at school the gate to the school driveway is closed, please do NOT open the gate without first confirming that there are no children in the school yard. This gate is a safety measure to prevent children and moving vehicles from being in the school yard at the same time.
Please remember to be courteous to our residential neighbors during drop off and pickup. Please do not block neighbors' driveways.
Thank you for your assistance in keeping drop off and pick up safe and smooth every day! Please contact Mrs. Flynn or Dr. Sullivan with any questions.
