Pick-up and drop-off times can be quite hectic, with many different traffic patterns and flows. We ask parents to be mindful of using turn signals to indicate intent to merge in or out of a line, particularly in the Old Gym turnaround between the Lower School and the Old Gym, as well as in the Bertelsmann turnaround.
While we have not had any "fender-benders" recently, we hope you will continue to be patient, respectful, and careful so that everyone will remain safe. If you have any questions about carpool line protocol, please feel free to contact your child's division director. Thank you and stay safe!
