Traffic & Safety

As the school year progresses and our schedules become more hectic, the drop-off in the morning and the pick-up in the afternoon can also become more rushed. To avoid any potential problems we would like to list a few safety reminders. Please take a moment to read them and share them with anyone who will be driving your children to and from school.


Please observe safe driving practices at all times.  Cell phone use (Hands free sets are distracting to safe driving) is not permitted in the South driveway.  Your full attention to the safety of the children is important.

Traffic must move to the end of the driveway at arrival time to enable more cars into the driveway.  Parent volunteers are at the curb to assist your children in getting out of the cars. Students must exit the cars on the curb side only.  Have backpacks and lunchboxes ready and give those kisses and hugs before your commute to school. This makes for a great morning drive.    

Crosswalks must be used to cross the driveway at all times. Students cross only with an adult. Please don't use your cell phones when dropping off or picking up your kids. 


We are very fortunate to have the help of morning greeters at South.  These wonderful morning people are none other than a group of our fabulous South Parents!  Our morning greeters are ready to open your car doors and greet your South Tiger between 8:10-8:30am each morning.  To help make this a smooth and productive process please remember the following tips:


We have a very efficient pick-up system at South School when everyone works together.  Here is what you should know to make this process quick and pleasant:
