Safety Concerns During Morning Drop Off and Afternoon Pick Up

Attention all parents and student drivers:  please pay very close attention when driving around campus and in our parking lots.  We have had some close calls in recent weeks. Please be aware of the following:

1.  Pedestrians have the right-of-way at the crosswalk on Forest Park Street and in parking lots. The crosswalk on Forest Park Street has flashing lights as a reminder for drivers to stop. If these lights are flashing, cars must stop.

2. If you are heading east on Forest Park Street in the mornings, please be extra cautious due to the glare of the morning sun.  Many students, parents and employees cross the street from the gravel parking lot in the mornings.

3. Please do not use your cell phone (for talk or text) while driving through the LCS parking lots. With so many kids around during the drop-off and pick-up times, we ask that you minimize distractions to help ensure the safety of our kids.
