• Carpool Information

     
    The safety of students during arrival and dismissal is a top priority. Please follow the carpool guidelines.
    • Drivers form two lines when entering the parking lot
    • Mornings- drivers, please be alert and not using cell phones; students will need to cross in front of cars in lane 1. Please be sure no one is crossing in front of you before pulling forward.
    • Afternoons- drivers, please be alert and not using cell phones; please do not call your child to your car when the line is moving. Students must wait for the lines to be stopped before they approach their cars. Please be sure no one is crossing in front of you before pulling forward.

    Morning:

    Drivers form two lines when entering the parking lot.

    Drivers, please be alert and not using cell phones; students will need to cross in front of cars in lane one. Please be sure no one is crossing in front of you before pulling forward.

     Students may arrive beginning at 7:45. The gate for carpool and student drivers will not open until 7:45. Carpool families and student drivers will enter by turning right off of Gretna Blvd. onto Huey P. Long Avenue. They will enter through the back gate into the student parking lot. Carpool students will be dropped off IN A SINGLE LINE by the black gate on the side of the building. Drivers will exit onto Gretna Blvd. and must turn RIGHT.

    It is advised that you DO NOT begin to line up early as the Gretna Police will ticket any cars that are parked or standing on Gretna Blvd. and the expressway side of Huey P. Long. Carpool should line up in Lane A as indicated below. Overflow may line up in Lane B as shown below. NO OTHER CARS WILL BE ALLOWED TO WAIT ON GRETNA BLVD. OR THE EXPRESSWAY SIDE OF HUEY P. LONG. IF BOTH LINE A AND B ARE FULL, DRIVERS MUST CONTINUE DRIVING AROUND AND COME BACK AFTER THE LINE STARTS TO MOVE.

    Afternoon:

    Beginning Wed. Jan.10th, car riders will follow the rainy day dismissal procedures DAILY. All cars should enter the carpool line as usual. Once the buses leave, cars will turn into the bus lane and form a single line. Cars should pull all the way forward toward the office. NO cars should enter the bus lane from Gretna Blvd. We have found this to be a more efficient way to monitor students and ensure their safety during dismissal.
