PARKING AND TRAFFIC REMINDERS

We want to remind everyone of the importance of safety during pick up and drop off at Hedenkamp.  Please continue to drive slowly and be mindful in the school zone and our parking lot.  Please arrive early if you would like to park in the lot.  Because parking is limited, we recommend that you take advantage of our drop off and pick up zones.  ThereTraffic Signs are three main areas.  They are: main parking lot, kindergarten loop and Tabor Court. If you arrive between 8:25 and 8:35 and use one of the drop off areas, drop off is quick and easy. Please encourage your students to wait in one of the three areas after school to be picked up as well.  The line moves quickly and most, if not all students are safely picked up by 3:30 p.m.  Both Mr. DeVore and Mrs. Mazeau will continue to  monitor the drop off and pick up areas.

To help facilitate the process, we ask all vehicles to continue to move forward in the drop off and pick up areas.  This allows more vehicles into the area, expediting the drop off and pick up.  Cars should never park in any of the three drop off pick up zones or in the red areas. Our wonderful safety patrol will share reminders with all of you, please be respectful and follow their instructions.  We thank everyone in advance for your patience, kindness, and cooperation.
