Alaska Native Cultural Charter School is committed to providing our students a safe and secure learning environment. This commitment includes the safe drop-off and pick-up of our children. To safely and efficiently accommodate all of the vehicle and pedestrian traffic, the following protocol has been designed.
In the morning, drivers entering the parking lot will turn right in the first lane and follow the lane to the end turning left to pull up to the drop-off/pick-up curb. If there are other drop off vehicles, be sure to pull forward as far as possible to the end of the drop-off lane to allow multiple cars to drop off children at the same time. At this time, please have students prepared to exit the car from the right side only. Drivers are to remain in the vehicle. If a student needs special help exiting the car, please instead follow the parking and escorting children procedure. After students are clear of the vehicle, please pull to the left and exit at the end of the lane to the left. Please treat the drop off lane as a single lane and wait in line rather than pull forward on the left unless you are exiting after dropping off.
The same procedure is followed at afternoon pick-up, but students will wait at the curb until a teacher excuses them to get in their car. NO child may cross the parking lot without a parent/guardian/adult escort. Children are allowed to exit and enter vehicles only in the Drop Off/Pick Up zone along the drop-off/pick-up lane. Drivers and children are also asked to always follow staff direction. Staff will wear orange saftey vests to be seen and assist everyone.
Parking and Escorting Children into School
When possible, parents are asked to help avoid parking lot congestion by using the Drop-Off/Pick-Up procedure. When there is a legitimate need to assist a child into school, parents may enter the parking lot and park. Driver may then walk the student into the building. Please note that students are only allowed in parking lot with escort. After drop off/pick up, please follow one way traffic flow to exit the lot.
Staff parking is located on the left hand side of the school. PLEASE use caution and watch for staff as they drive straight into the left side lot, rather than driving around the drop-off/pick-up lane. There is no need for staff to congest the drop-off/pick-up lane and therefore will enter the parking lot and drive straight ahead to staff parking.
Vehicles with a government-issued disability parking placard may park in one of the dedicated spots available in the parking lot. Please follow all additional parking lot rules.
Visitors who will stay at school under 15 minutes may park in one of the dedicated spots available in the parking lot; if you find that you will remain longer than 15 minutes, please move your vehicle. Please follow all additional parking lot rules.
Speed Limit: 5 MPH
ABSOLUTELY NO USE OF CELL PHONE OR ELECTRONIC DEVICES ARE PERMITTED WHILE DRIVING ON SCHOOL GROUNDS.
