From Principal Nicholas:
Welcome back to a new an exciting school year!! As we embark on an new adventure, I wanted to remind you of the student drop off and pick up procedures. We have our student drop off in the south parking lot. Please do not leave your cars unattended to go and pick a student up (unless it is in a designated parking stall). We appreciate you following the rules of right turn only at the exit onto Glendon Street. This helps move traffic through the parking lot and helps the crossing guard get students across both streets safely. As a reminder, student are not to be dropped off in the front of the school. This is a bus/day care van zone only. The buses and day care vans cannot access this zone if parents are dropping students off or leaving their cars parked and left unattended. All drop offs and pick ups must be done in the south parking lot for the safety of all students. We appreciate your attention to this matter.
Also, DO NOT pick up and drop off your child on Germania or Germania Circle. Residents of the street often report that driveways are being blocked and that so many cars are letting students out it is causing a disruption in the flow of traffic from the neighborhood. There is not a crossing guard and it is not safe for your students to get out of a car on the street. If Murray Police sees this happening, you will be issued a ticket. We also often have parents parking on Germania and calling their students over when they are not in a crosswalk. This is a safety concern and is not allowed. We teach our students about walking safely, using crosswalks and meeting parents in the designated pick up places. We need the parents help to see that the rules are followed so none of our students are hurt.
Thank you again for your attention to our drop off/pick up procedure. It is our job to make sure students are safe and we ask that all parents do everything they can to avoid an accident happening to any of our Horizon students.
If you have questions, feel free to contact me at (801) 264-7420 or by email email@example.com.
