Dismissal Procedures

Dear North Phoenix Prep Families,

Thanks to everyone for getting into the routine of drop-off and dismissal.  We are making great progress!  I am just writing to address a particular pattern that we are observing during dismissal and the way that we are working to remedy that problem.

It seems that Prep-only families are using both lanes around the field rather than keeping to the outside, righthand lane.  Our traffic procedure requires that Prep-only families keep to the outside, righthand lane.  When Prep-only families use both lanes, this blocks Archway families and creates large gaps in our dismissal line.

We have communicated the proper traffic procedure on the Gladiator Press, Facebook, and email.  We have also posted campus signs in the traffic flow that indicate which lane our drivers should choose.  Even so, Prep drivers are choosing to use both lanes.

Please understand, drivers who are not using the proper lane will return to the back of the dismissal line.  If you are driving in the inside, left hand lane, you will need to have a blue Archway card.  Otherwise, our staff will direct your vehicle to the back of the dismissal line.  

In addition, make sure to exit our campus by turning right on to 32nd Street. Waiting to turn left causes backups as well.

Thanks to everyone who is already following our dismissal procedures, and thanks to everyone for your patience as we work together with Archway to fine-tune our campus dismissal process.

With Devotion,

Headmaster Weinhold
