Arrival and Dismissal Information

With 500 students at Clemens Crossing Elementary, it is important to be patient during arrival and dismissal.  The carefully planned logistics of arrival and dismissal help us keep our students, staff, parents, and visitors safe.  

Please follow the posted signs along Quarterstaff Road.  Traffic engineers studied the road and placed signs to help maximize sight lines for drivers. This helps to reduce risks and provide the safe crossing of Quarterstaff Road for walkers who live on the other side of the road.   

Car Riders - All car riders are dismissed on the parking lot side of the building.  Car riders are expected to be dropped-off and picked up in the car loop (school parking lot).   We do not allow students to cross the bus parking lot and load into their car along Quarterstaff Road.  Please do not tell your children to meet you along Quarterstaff Road.  

  • During arrival and dismissal, we expect car traffic to enter the carloop from the Martin Road side of Quarterstaff Road (right turn into the parking lot).  Exiting the carloop is right turn only as well.  Please plan your trip accordingly.  Left-hand turn traffic creates back-ups in addition to making it difficult to see blindspots.
  • If you do park legally along Quarterstaff Road, your child is considered a walker and will be dismissed with walkers.

Walkers - We dismiss walkers last. We do this so our walkers can walk home safely with a reduced number of cars and buses on property and along Quarterstaff Road. Walkers who cross Quarterstaff Road must cross the street with the crossing guard.

It is everyone’s responsibility to be safe during arrivals and dismissals.
