LCSC Shares New Traffic Patterns
Attention All Drivers:
Beginning with the start of the 2019-2020 school year Loogootee Community School Corporation will be making multiple changes to the traffic pattern around the school for the safety of our students and drivers on the property.
At Loogootee Elementary School the student drop off and pick up will be the Main Entrance to the building. Entry for this drop off or pick-up will only be from Costello Drive (the road that runs around the playground). Costello Drive will be a one-way road (North to South) from the hours of 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Please approach Costello Drive from Butcher Blvd or “A” Street and drive out Wood Street. Please do not wait on Butcher Blvd to make a turn onto Costello Drive if traffic is lined up on Costello Drive.
Car riders that are dropped off in the morning and picked up in the afternoon will use the main entry and will enter and exit vehicles when directed by staff. The goal is to load and unload 6 to 8 vehicles at a time. In order to do this, the first vehicle in line will pull up to the end of the brown ballards/walkway to softball field. The first 6-8 vehicles will then load and unload under Mrs. Wade’s and Mrs. Smith’s supervision. Please use the car line to load and unload your child rather than walking them to the door. For your child’s safety, please have the child exit the vehicle on the school side of the vehicle. Also, for the safety of all children, please make sure to stay in the car line and follow the flow of the traffic. (Do NOT pull out of line)
If you need to visit the Elementary School building during this time, you may enter from Wood Street and park in a designated/marked spot and then proceed to the main entrance.
At Loogootee High/Middle School the access road on the north side of the building will be blocked off at the weight room/dock area from 7:30 am to 8:30 am and 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm. The Middle School drop off will remain at Door E. After dropping the student off the driver should then loop around and proceed back out School Drive (the drive by the little league) to Butcher Blvd to exit.
Patrons needing to drop off students at both the High School and Middle School are encouraged to use the main High School entrance. However, if you desire to drop at each entrance the driver must enter off Butcher Blvd for each area and pull to the proper loading / unloading area.
As a reminder no student drop off or pick up should occur in the back of the buildings from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. This area is reserved for Buses delivering students and faculty/staff parking.
Loogootee Community School Corporation appreciates your help in keeping our students safe. Please be sure to share this information with anyone who may pick up or drop off your child.
