Student Pick-up Information for the Parker Damon Building Beginning 10/29/18

In an effort to promote student safety on campus, the afternoon student pick-up route will be altered, beginning on Monday, October 29. School Administrators have consulted with the Superintendent, transportation department, as well as the Acton Police to develop a revised plan for pick-up that will reduce congestion on Charter Road. This plan will be a pilot. As we implement this change, we will be gathering data and making observations as to how traffic is impacted.

Those that are picking up students in the car line will now be expected to enter through the UPPER parking lot (staff parking) to access the student pick-up area. This will provide additional space for more vehicles to line up without impeding traffic on the main road. We ask that cars stay along the right side of the road all the way through to the student pick-up area. You may pass school vans only when their lights are not flashing.

Additionally, no LEFT turns will be allowed as drivers exit the lower lot by the Administration Building. Drivers wishing to access Rt. 111 should cross Charter Road and proceed through the Junior High parking lot.

If you need to park and enter the building to dismiss a student, please park in the LOWER lot per usual. These changes will not impact morning drop-off. A map of the area is attached. 

Thank you for your attention to this very important matter.
