IMPORTANT CARPOOL INFORMATION

Please see below for our updated Morning Carpool Information- New morning carpool loop map is located to the right side of the page. Please Review

Parents, 

We need your assistance when navigating through carpool traffic. In order for us to get you on and off the campus safely and quickly, please follow these directions. 

  • PLEASE DO NOT block neighborhood entrances and intersections where the people in those neighborhoods can’t get in or out. 
  • PLEASE DO NOT utilize the wrong lanes which creates safety hazards. 
  • PLEASE DO NOT block traffic on highway 55, this creates a safety issue as well. 
  • PLEASE DO NOT sit and wait in neighbors as this is a disruption to our neighbors.
  • PLEASE DO NOT sit and wait on highway 55, if you find you have backed up on to hwy 55 please continue on and keep moving.
  • PLEASE ALWAYS choose the SHORTEST line when coming on campus, this will allow us to move traffic efficiently.  

Most of you received your carpool numbers over the past two days. Please display those numbers as you approach the campus. If you are returning from last year, the carpool numbers have changed and are now on pink card stock. For the remaining students who did not pick up their carpool numbers, they will be given theirs during their last period class today. 


If you do not have your carpool number, PLEASE write your child’s first and last name on a sheet of paper large enough for us to read it so we can call them out. 


We are getting complaints from the neighbors and police department regarding our carpool traffic. We are trying to explain to them that we are a school, and with any school, there will be traffic during carpool. What we would like to show them is that we have the best, fastest, and most efficient carpool system ever. In order for us to do that, we desperately need your help and cooperation. 


One suggestion would be to arrive on campus a little later than 2:45 rather than lining up at 2:35. This will help us in staggering the students during dismissal and will also help you get on campus easier and quicker. 


Please watch the staff as they direct traffic and do NOT talk or text on your cell phones! 


We appreciate how quickly carpool actually flowed given that it was the first day of school and we anticipate that it will only get better in the days to come. 


It’s going to be an amazing year. 



Please follow these directions as it will ease the carpool process for everyone.

 

Afternoon Carpool-

  1. Cars will stack in two lanes in front of the modular buildings and pull up to the front stop line between building 4 and modular building 3.
  2. Please have your carpool number displayed PROMINENTLY so that our staff may easily read your number.
  3. Please choose the SHORTEST lane as you enter the parking lot.  It DOES NOT matter if your student is in MS or HS we do not have designated lanes for MS or HS.
  4. Only enter the parking lot using a right turn.  Left turns into the parking lot are PROHIBITED.
  5. Cars are NOT PERMITTED to stack on Old Powell Road.  You are also NOT PERMITTED to sit on Kelly Creek Road or any other neighborhood roads to wait for your child.  Fuquay Police will issue tickets to any cars parked on the roadways waiting for their students.
  6. Please DO NOT encourage your student to walk to Sheetz to meet you.  
  7. The area directly in front of building 4 is considered a “controlled area” for the loading zone.  This area is for loading ONLY.
  8. Cars will be directed into the loading zone.  Once all cars are loaded cars will be released by a staff member.
  9. If your child is not in your car when the group is released, please move to the center lane for holding.  We will direct your student to the holding zone. Please do not encourage your student to cross traffic to load into your car.  We will get them to you.
  10. If you need to pick your child up early for a doctor’s appointment, and there are already cars in the lanes, please use the center lane.  There should be no students being picked up early after 2:15. Please make arrangements to have your student picked up PRIOR to 2:15 for any doctor’s appointments.  
  11. Please be patient.  The first few weeks are difficult.  Our goal is to move the carpool lane as QUICKLY & SAFELY as possible.


Morning Carpool- Please note the following CHANGES in our morning process.  

Please follow these directions as it will ease the carpool process for everyone.

  1. Cars ARE NOT PERMITTED on campus until 7:25 am.  We need to keep the parking lot open to allow staff members to access their parking spots and get to work on time!
  2. Only enter the parking lot using a right turn.  Left turns into the parking lot are PROHIBITED.
  3. Cars will stack in two lanes in front of the modular buildings and pull up to the front stop line between building 4 and modular building 3.
  4. Please choose the SHORTEST lane as you enter the parking lot.  It DOES NOT matter if your student is in MS or HS we do not have designated lanes for MS or HS.
  5. CHANGE- At 7:30 PRIOR to letting your child out of your car, the OUTER LOOP (the one close to the buildings) will pull around in front of building four and stop at the orange traffic cone keeping one (1) single lane.  Once you have pulled around your child may exit your car. Please DO NOT unload students anything prior to building 3.  Students may exit from the beginning of building 3 forward.  The plan is to have as many cars exiting and moving at one time. 
  6. The INNER LOOP will pull around the middle lane to exit their students to the loading zone lane to be crossed by a staff member.
  7. Students ARE NOT PERMITTED to exit their cars until 7:30 am.  Please WAIT for a staff member to release students from their cars.

  2. Please DO NOT WAIT until the last minute to get your children to school.  First-period class BEGINS PROMPTLY at 8:00 a.m.  If your students arrive on campus at 8:01 am they are considered TARDY.  At 8:01 parents are REQUIRED to park their cars and walk their students into the building and SIGN THEM IN as present.
