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 8:10 AM and close at 8:30 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.

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 4:05. This practice will maintain neighborly rapport and prevent traffic back-ups.

Parents will be provided a placard with child(ren)’s name(s). 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 down Constance Street to the loading area where students will be placed into the vehicle. Parents are asked to remain in their vehicles at all times. *Rainy Day Proceedures – proceed down Constance Street and turn left into the schoolyard gates where your child(ren) will be brought to the vehicle, exit right through the other gate. In September, parents must utilize the Pikmykid app for safe and effective dismissal procedures. More information coming soon regarding Pikmykid.

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