Traffic Guidelines

As you know, we have a great deal of traffic during both morning drop-off and afternoon pick-
up. To assist us in making both times as effective, efficient and safe as possible, please follow

the guidelines/rules provided below. Traffic at the start of the school year tends to be heavier
and slower as all of our community members become familiar with the routines and procedures.
We greatly appreciate your patience, cooperation, and attention to these guidelines during
morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up.


Morning Drop-off Guidelines

Front of School/South Parking Lot

1. Bear Creek K-8 was not constructed with a “buses only” entrance. Therefore, the main
entrance to the south parking lot is closed for morning drop-off between 7:40-
8:00AM (or until all busses have left the school). This is for student safety while our
busses are unloading students.
2. Handicapped vehicles are permitted.
3. Daycare parking spots are for Daycare vans only.

West Parking Lot

1. This is our “hug and go” student drop-off area. Two lanes of traffic flow in to the
parking lot entrance.
2. Pull forward as far as possible.
3. Stay with your vehicle at all times.
4. West lane has access to the parking lot.

 

Afternoon Pick-up Guidelines

Front of School/South Parking Lot

1. This parking lot is closed until 3:05PM (or until all busses have left the school).
a. No student pick-up in the afternoon until after 3:05PM or all busses have left the
school.

West Parking Lot

1. This is our student pick-up lot. Please arrange to pick up your student in ​this​​ lot. 
2. Pull forward as far as possible along the sidewalk.
3. DO NOT, for any reason, leave your vehicle unattended.
4. The second lane (west-side lane) must be left open for access to the parking lot.
