Traffic Patterns, Busing and Carpool Arrival/Dismissal
Due to both the physical location of Lee Eaton and state minimum
busing in the district, arrival and dismissal present some very
interesting obstacles for many of our parents and students. Below
are several documents that will help you safely and (hopefully) efficiently
navigate our procedures during both our pick-up and drop-off times.
Bus information will be posted by August 19th on our transportation
Please check bus routes and times after the 19th, password: stop
Bus Riders will be released at 2:10 when the 1st dismissal bell rings.
Students walking home will be released at
2:20 when the 2nd dismissal bell rings so that they can safely
exit the building after carpool dismissal.This will limit crosswalk
delays and speed up carpool lines when dismissing students.
Walkers, please be cautious when walking home.Obey traffic
personnel, avoid walking across private lawns and be safe.
Please wait in your homeroom until dismissed.
Dismissal of Car Riders will start at 2:10 by calling their car code
number or name over the PA system. Students will be released
from their homerooms when their number or name is called.
Carpool forms were available at during the schedule pick-up and
will also be available throughout the year.Some key reminders for
parents dropping off and picking up:
-Please return your carpool form as soon as possible. We will
begin this process the first day of school. Students are dismissed
from their homerooms when their car code number or name is
called. Please display your car code in your windshield, so it is
easily seen by the LE traffic personnel.
-Drivers are asked not to attempt left turns from Ledge Road
between 7-8 am and from 2-3 pm. Traffic gridlock occurs at the
intersections of Firestone, Ledge and our Carpool Entrance
during these heavily traveled times. Northfield PD will assist
with traffic intermittently, however, school personnel will only
be concerned with student pedestrians and are not permitted
to direct traffic. Use caution and stay calm...we understand
that the conditions are not ideal, and simply want to ensure
that safety is our #1 concern.
-There will be a 2 lane entry to our East lot for both arrival and
dismissal. This will allow for maximum traffic in our lot, and
minimal traffic spilling onto Ledge Rd. See the map below for details:
