Dear George Kelly Families,
Due to the increase of traffic during the dismissal hours we have set these procedures to ensure the safety of our students and staff. When picking up children at dismissal times, please remember the following:
1.) Vehicles are only allowed to park along the curb or in the driveway 10 minutes before release time. For example, Monday students are released at 1:15pm, so vehicles will be allowed to wait along the curb or in the drive way starting at 1:05pm, but not before.
2.) Pull ALL the way forward when coming through the pick-up line. We are trying to move as many cars through as quickly as possible to keep traffic flowing.
3.) When exiting the driveway, turning right helps the flow of traffic. If you turn right exiting the driveway, and then left at the next available street, Carol Ann Drive, you will do a loop and end up back on Golden Leaf Lane. By taking this route YOU will help the flow of traffic and avoid possible accidents.
4.) Obey the rules of the road…we have requested an increase in Tracy Police Department’s presence. It is illegal to do a U-Turn over a double yellow line, crossing without using the crosswalk (jaywalking), as well as pulling alongside of a parked vehicle to have a child enter into a vehicle. These are all illegal and major safety hazards.
5.) Parents please wait on either side of the caution tape. Students are not allowed to run around and play on the front concrete area, or the grass area by the bike rack.
6.) If you would like to help keep our dismissals safe, please sign up for our “Afternoon Angels,” to help make sure our students, staff, and parents are safe. Please see Mrs. Rocio in our office to add your name to our list. I would personally like to thank ALL of the “Afternoon Angels” who have volunteered so far-we appreciate your presence.
We appreciate and thank you in advance for following our dismissal procedures. This will help keep everyone safe at George Kelly School.
Ms. Mary Petty
