    Morning Drop Off:

    The parent parking lot entrance is off of Cranberry Street. The red-painted zone is an "active" drop off and pick up zone only. Do NOT leave your vehicle unattended in the red zone, it will be towed. Please have your child ready to hop out of your vehicle, on the passenger side, with backpack in hand. Please do not wait in the active loading zone to make sure your child goes into their classroom because it stops the flow of traffic, causing traffic to back up onto Cranberry, and prevents other students from getting to class on time. If you want to make sure your child enters the classroom, park your vehicle in the parent parking area and walk your child to their designated entry door.


    Afternoon Pick Up:

    When picking up your child at the end of the day, pull as far forward as possible in the "active" lane. Do not get out of your vehicle. Your child should be able to safely get in on the passenger side and buckle themselves in. If they require assistance, park in the parent parking lot and meet them at their designated exit door.

    Staff Parking Lot is for Gladys Wood Staff ONLY - not to be used for student drop off or pick up.  Students are NOT permitted to walk through the staff parking lot.
