Welcome Back Crichfield Families!

The safety of our students is a top priority for both parents and staff members alike. In order to secure a safer arrival and dismissal process, there have been some changes to our parking lot.

  • All cars will now enter and exit via Johnson Rd. for arrival and dismissal times.
  • All buses will now enter and exit via Country Club Dr. for arrival and dismissal times.
  • A gate and chain posts have been installed to ensure separation of car and bus traffic.

We encourage you to have your student(s) ride the bus to and from school each day, as our parking is very limited on space.

If you choose to drop your student(s) off at school in the morning, you may do so via the Johnson Rd. entrance and drop your student curbside at the Gymnasium entrance on the west side of the building. Students may be dropped off beginning at 8:15 if they are eating breakfast at school. Students that are not joining us for breakfast, may be dropped off beginning at 8:25. Students will not be let into the building until this time, as supervision will be provided, beginning at 8:25. The first bell rings at 8:35.

If you choose to pick your student(s) up at dismissal time, please plan for additional time, as this process has changed. Drivers will now enter via the Johnson Rd. entrance only and follow the arrows around the parking lot, to form a pick-up line curbside at the Gymnasium entrance on the west side of the building . The pick-up line is a single row of cars, to ensure students safely enter their car from the sidewalk. Drivers will remain with their cars and student(s) will load curbside. Once students have loaded, cars may leave the curbside line to the left and exit via Johnson Rd. As cars pull away, the line will continue to move forward. Please do not motion for your student from the parking lot or rear of the line, as we will ask students to remain on the sidewalk until their car is curbside in the line. Please note that this process will take longer, however students will be safely waiting for your arrival on the sidewalk and all cars will be safely traveling in the same direction, without bus interference.

The staff appreciates your understanding and patience as we work through this new system. We are confident this new process will make the parking lot a much safer place for both students and drivers!
