PCA’s Parking Lot Traffic and Safety Plan
This year, PCA’s Parking Lot Traffic and Safety Plan opened the west lot for K-4th grade drop off/pick up, allowing for a more efficient school entry/dismissal. PCA’s Administrative Team is outside each day to ensure that traffic patterns and pedestrian walkways are safe and operating efficiently. We are regularly reviewing the patterns of our parking lot and want to inform you of some updates for added safety.
General Parking Lot: All students must be accompanied by parents when walking on PCA’s parking lots. Pedestrians must use the school’s clearly marked crosswalks. Please avoid crossing traffic lanes.
West Parking Lot (adjacent to the flower shop): A PCA Administrator will help direct pedestrians to use crosswalks and vehicles to follow traffic flow.
Parent Drop Off/Pick Up: We encourage parents to use PCA’s carlines whenever feasible. If you plan to park your vehicle at drop off/pick up, students must be accompanied by parents when walking to and from vehicles at drop off/pick up and utilize the school’s clearly marked crosswalks. Kindergarten Parents: Thank you for parking “short-term” in the east & west parking lot and waiting in the designated parking spaces (identified with cones) by the Kindergarten classrooms. Please be sure to use the closest crosswalk and avoid crossing traffic lanes.
Designated Crosswalks: For the safety of everyone, we ask that you use the following crosswalks when walking on the school’s parking lot:
- Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd Grade: (2) Crosswalks located at the corners of the church building by the Kindergarten classrooms OR (2) Crosswalks located near the safety chain and the playscape.
- 3rd-4th Grade: (2) Crosswalks located near the safety chain and the playscape.
- 5th-6th Grade: Crosswalk located near the fire hydrant OR Crosswalks located near the safety chains
Thank you for your help in keeping our school safe.
