Traffic flow to change for 2013-14

Printer-friendly version

Due to the new construction that began in the summer, traffic flow before and after school will change at Glacier Creek.

Principal Tim Keeler and associate principal Rick Kisting have looked at a variety of options and the plan below appears to address two goals:

1. Student, parent and staff safety.

2. Allowing students to b picked up and dropped off in a timely manner.

With that in mind, here is what will happen in the morning.

  • Bus traffic will drive into the parking lot area in front of Glacier Creek and loop around at the end of the parking lot. Bus drop off in the morning will be in the front of Glacier Creek. Please note that due to the construction, the east end of th parking lot will be shorter than the lot space on the diagram.
  • To minimize traffic congestion, parents who are dropping off students will be asked to drop them of in front of the academic wings on the west side of the building and not pull into the parking lot. We ask that students walk down the sidewalk to the main entrance of the school.
  • If you are going to enter the building with your child, you will be able to pull into the parking lot and use the designated crosswalk area.

Here is what will happen after school:

  • Bus traffic will line on the west side of the building in the lane in front of the academic wings.
  • Students will be released from the academic wings to load onto their appropriate bus. This is the area where their lockes are located.
  • Parents who are picking up students will pull into the parking lot area and line up in front of the school. Please note that due to the construction, the east end of the parking lot will be shorter than the lot space on the diagram. It is important to have parents follow the flow of traffic and not turn around in the parking lot. With the amount of traffic present, we don't want students walking across the line of traffic to enter cars parked in the lot.
  • Parents leaving the parking lot area should follow the path outlined in the diagram below.
