Homecoming Parade
The TFA annual Homecoming Parade will begin at 1:55pm on Friday October 16th at the conclusion of our Middle School Pep Rally. The parade route begins at First Orlando’s Welcome Center A and follows the loop road.


Middle School/Upper School Carline
Right Lane is for drop off and pick up–Left Lane is for Leaving
All cars are expected to pull up to the designated area (on the Student Center side ) of the drive thru lane (we will utilize the entire loop). This will enable us to stack many more cars and get them off of the tennis area and JYP/PSAC roadways.
To facilitate student safety, we will only permit drop off and pick up from the right lane. The left lane is for leaving.

*The only exception for not pulling through all the way to the designated point would be on bad weather days.
