Pick up/Drop off:
For the safety of Thompson Elementary students, we are implementing a plan for our school’s parking lot. The curb is a place to pick up and drop off only. During drop-off, please pull forward. Do not leave space between you and the car in front of you. Encourage your child(ren) to exit quickly to prevent a traffic jam. If you would like to park, please park in the parent parking area regardless of the parking space label. To ensure Thompson student safety, Lane One is for drop off and pick up only. Lane Two is for parking. Lane Three is a fire lane; we are to keep this lane open at all times in the case of an emergency.
During dismissal, we would like to incorporate a very similar structure. To ensure Thompson student safety, there will be only one lane to enter the parking lot. There is no left turn into the school parking lot. Right turn into the parking lot ONLY. Lane One is for drop off and pick up only. Please do not leave your vehicle unattended along the curb. Continually move forward and remain in your vehicle. If the parking lot is full, please park outside of the school. Lane Three is a fire lane; we are to keep this lane open at all times in the case of an emergency.
We are no longer allowed to park at the United Methodist Church. Please park along the street or across the school in the dirt area. Thank you for all your support and help in ensuring the safety of all students, parents, and teachers. Any car not abiding by the safety rules of our parking lot will be reported to school police.
