New Traffic Flow for 2014/2015 School Year

 

Loading and Unloading of Students: 
The traffic pattern for the 2014-2015 school year has been modified to better meet the needs of students and parents.  Please adhere to the new travel patterns for a smooth transition in dropping-off and picking-up students.


Parents with children in more than one grade level should drop-off or pick-up the children in the area designated for the youngest child’s grade level.

 

YELLOW LOADING/UNLOADING ZONE:
Pre-K, Kindergarten, First and Second Grade Students drop-off/pick-up zone is located behind the cafeteria.  Parents will enter the campus from the Moore Road entrance.  Cars will stay in the right lane following appropriate the yellow arrows.  At the stop sign, turn right and continue to follow the yellow arrows to the designated drop off/pick-up zone at the awning behind the cafeteria.  When exiting the campus, follow the yellow arrows leading back to Moore Road.  Cars exiting to the right onto Moore Road should use the right exit lane (following the appropriate arrows).  Cars exiting to the left onto Moore Road should be in the center exit lane (following the appropriate yellow arrows).

 

BLUE LOADING/UNLOADING ZONE:
Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Grade Students drop off/pick up zone is located behind the second and third grade wing.  Parents will enter the campus from Highway 29 at the lower drive in front of the school.  Follow the blue arrows at the Highway 29 entrance.  Bear right, and continue to follow the blue arrows to the drop-off and pick-up zone located at the awnings behind the second and third grade wing.   When exiting the campus, use the Highway 29 exit route.  Follow the blue arrows when exiting the campus onto Highway 29.

 

 BUSES LOADING/UNLOADING ZONE:
All buses will use the main entrance to Andalusia Elementary School for unloading and loading of students.  Students who ride in cars should not be picked up or dropped off in the loading and unloading zone for buses. 

An animated traffic pattern is available for viewing on the Andalusia City Schools website at:  www.andalusiacityschools.net
