Headmaster Letter

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

The coming weeks promise to be filled with activity as we finish this school year with gusto!  I was so impressed with the performance of Shakespeare's' Love's Labours Lost this past Thursday, and I am looking forward to Fine Arts Night on this coming Thursday, which promises to be a truly special evening of beautifully crafted artwork, captivating music, and stirring poetry.  You won't want to miss this important event in the life of our school!

Looking ahead to next year and our new campus, I want to address the important matter of traffic patterns for pickup and drop-off.

Question: What will the pickup and drop-off lines be like?

Answer:  See the image below.  Prep is blue.  Archway is red.

All traffic will enter the campus from the south via Hearn Rd.  All traffic (both Archway and Prep) will then proceed around the field.  Prep-only families will then turn south and pickup or drop-off at the south side of the Prep building and exit the campus using the east exit.

If you have both Prep and Archway students, then you will:

  • Drop-off all of your students on the Archway side in the morning.  The Prep students will proceed to their side of campus by foot.
  • Pick up all of your students on the Prep side in the afternoon.  The Prep students will retrieve their siblings and bring them to the Prep pickup area. 

Some of our Prep-only families may be wondering why they cannot simply turn right once they've entered the campus.  Why go all the way around the field?  The reason is that we need to queue our vehicles.  A traffic study conducted by the City of Phoenix has determined that allowing a right-hand turn for Prep-only families would result in traffic spilling onto 32nd Street.  Nobody wants that.

Doubtless, the traffic pattern at our new campus will take a week or so for our community to learn, but once we get it established and figure out the right timing, it will become routine.  Thanks in advance to everyone for your patience, and for your diligence in learning these traffic patterns well ahead of time.

With Devotion,
Headmaster Weinhold
