Middle School/Upper School Carline
Right Lane is for drop off and pick up–Left Lane is for Leaving

All cars MUST 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.

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.
