Patton Campus
Lycée requests that parents use the car pick up/drop off line in order to avoid parking in the neighborhood and to bolster our good neighbor policy. Vehicles must enter the school grounds through the entrance on Constance Street and drive through school yard to designated unloading spots. Gates open at 7:50 AM.

To enter the schoolyard, vehicles must access Constance St. via Nashville lakebound. Do not enter the carpool line from Magazine St. onto Nashville or Eleonore Street to Constance. Following this practice will ensure that no traffic ever backs up onto Nashville to Magazine Street. Parents are expected to be courteous and follow the protocol.

Parents are to remain in cars at all times. Children should be ready to exit the vehicle quickly. Give kisses and au revoirs before the unloading zone. For safety reasons, please do not permit child(ren) to exit vehicles before the designated unloading zone. Staff will help unload students in the unloading zone and direct them into the building to their class.

 

Carrollton Campus
City traffic engineers are prohibiting any student from being dropped off on Carrollton Ave. for reasons of student safety and traffic flow on this major artery. All parents dropping off their children must queue up on Willow St. next to St. Matthew’s Church.

As usual, it is crucial to be observant and considerate of pedestrians, other motorists and our neighbors who may be leaving their homes to reach their destinations.

Students will enter the campus through the Willow St. gate that leads to the playground. Lycée staff will be present at the gate to direct students to their classrooms.

Patton Campus
The carpool line begins at the Constance Street gate. Students names will be called and children escorted for boarding vehicles in the schoolyard. Parents are asked to refrain from lining up for carpool before 3:45. This practice will maintain neighborly rapport and prevent traffic back-ups.

Parents will be provided a placard with child(ren)’s names. The placard should be visibly displayed on the driver’s side dashboard. After the child’s/children’s name has been collected by duty staff, vehicles may then proceed through the schoolyard to the loading area where students will be placed into the vehicle. Parents are asked to remain in their vehicles at all times.

By working together, the carpool line should progress efficiently, and everyone, including our neighbors, will be happy.

 

Carrollton Campus
City traffic engineers are prohibiting any student from being dropped off on Carrollton Ave. for reasons of student safety and traffic flow on this major artery. All parents picking up their children must queue up on Willow St. next to St. Matthew’s Church.

As usual, it is crucial to be observant and considerate of pedestrians, other motorists and our neighbors who may be leaving their homes to reach their destinations.

Students will enter the campus through the Willow St. gate that leads to the playground. Lycée staff will be present at the gate to direct students to their classrooms.

Because Willow is a narrow residential street, lining up for carpool before carpool has commenced will inhibit the flow of traffic. Parents arriving before 4:00 PM dismissal should legally park their cars and meet their children in the playground once the Willow St. gate has opened.

Patton Campus
Parents who choose to park and walk to drop off/pick up a child/children are requested to

  1. Park legally. Never block any driveways or park near street corners.
  2. Enter through the State Street gate only. The State Street gate is the drop off location for all pedestrians.
  3. Please do not enter from Constance Street or Patton Street.
  4. Parents who walk their children to school may escort them to the State Street entrance where duty personnel will supervise children as they walk to their classrooms.
  5. If the child is tardy (arriving after 8:10 AM), the parent/guardian must accompany the child to the Patton Street entrance.

Carrollton Campus
Parents who choose to park in the neighborhood and walk their children to the campus may enter through the Willow St. gate. Please park legally. Never block any driveways or park near street corners.

Patton Campus
Enter through the STATE STREET gate ONLY between 3:45 PM and 4:00 PM (2:45 PM and 3:00 PM on Wednesdays). The STATE STREET GATE is the designated pick-up gate for students. Parents arriving early should remain outside the State Street gate until 3:45 PM.  Students will be dismissed to their parents from their lines. Because of safety and security concerns, teachers and parents may not have conferences during dismissal time. Teachers are expected to closely monitor the safety and orderly dismissal of their students.

Parents arriving after 4:00 PM (3:00 PM Wednesdays) must enter through the red doors on Patton Street to retrieve their children from after care.

Carrollton Campus
From 4:00 PM to 4:15 PM, parents who choose to park in the neighborhood and walk to the campus to pick up their children may enter through the Willow St. gate to meet them in the playground.

LFNO will provide bus transportation from our Priestley site at 1619 Leonidas St. to the Patton & Carrollton campuses and back to the Priestley site on school days provided all of the following conditions are met:

  • The student lives within a one mile radius of the Priestley site or was selected in a random lottery for other students living outside the zone (with first priority granted to families who qualify for federal free or reduced lunch), and
  • The parent or other authorized responsible adult is present at the Priestley bus stop between 7:15 AM and 7:30 AM each school day.
  • The parent or parent’s representative is present at the Priestley bus stop to receive the student(s) at 4:10 PM each school day, except Wednesday when the drop off time is 3:10 PM.
  • The parent places on file with the school office the names and contact persons given permission to pick up the parent’s child.
  • The student remains seated with seat belt fastened at all times while the bus is in motion.
  • The student refrains from boisterous talking, throwing objects, pushing or shoving others.
  • The student keeps hands and limbs inside bus windows.
  • The student refrains from aggressive behavior or behavior that incites arguments.
  • If requested by the bus driver or other Lycée staff member, the student sits in an assigned seat.

Riding the bus is a privilege and that privilege may become temporarily suspended or revoked if

  • The parent or other authorized responsible adult is tardy in meeting the bus at the prescribed pick up time three times.
  • The parent or other authorized responsible adult fails to retrieve the student(s), requiring the bus to return the them to their campuses. The return charge is $30.
  • The student receives three minor referrals or one major referral for inappropriate bus behavior as deemed by the Coordinator of Student Safety & Behavior and/or the Principal.
  • The student defaces or damages the bus.

Suspension from the bus does not excuse students from school, and families will be responsible for bringing students to school should they be suspended from the bus for any reason. The bus driver may not allow any student to enter the bus or disembark from the bus at any point other than the Priestley, Patton or Carrollton campuses.
