PLEASE TAKE SPECIAL NOTE OF SCHOOL DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP PROCEDURES - 2012/2013
We love our Dicken families! But, we do need to ask our parents and babysitters who have strollers, to either park them outside of the school before you enter, or stroll them along side of our hallways. The hallways are getting congested especially near the end of the day. We have a number of classes who are returning from special area classes during that time. Today we did have a collision. Fortunately, no one was hurt. We want to keep ALL of our kids safe, even our toddlers! Thank you for understanding.* Please be mindful to use only the Carol Street parking lot for dropping off and picking up students.
Please, please, please, do not drop off or pick up our students in front of the school, unless it is quite early or late, and your child attends childcare. We have had some close calls that could have injured our students with cars moving too quickly, or children walking away from their parents in this area. The Carol Street Lot is for pick-up and drop-off. This also includes our dear kindergartners. ALL of our students and staff thank you for understanding that we must keep safety at the top of our list.
* You may ONLY park your car in the AVAILABLE PARKING SPOTS to escort your child to the door, if you wish.
* Please DO NOT PARK or leave your vehicle unattended at the curb of any of the Dicken School parking areas. There have been several reports of children nearly being hit by vehicles unable to see because of cars parked at the curb(s). REMEMBER: A yellow curb means no parking per Ann Arbor City ordinance. All of the curbs at Dicken are yellow.
* Cones will be placed at the Runnymede Blvd. entrance of the school to stop vehicles (with the exception of school buses) from approaching the building during drop-off and pick-up times.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION!
