Safety concern-Dropping Off and Picking Up Students

Dear Families,

As you are aware John Sweeney is a large school with almost 800 students under the care of staff. The beginning and the end of the day is very congested and we are doing all we can to calm traffic on school property during this time.  We ask that parents or caregivers dropping off or picking up students near the portable areas to not congregate in the asphalt area, in the parking lot, or near the driveway where vehicles will be coming in and out.  The sidewalk area near the fire hydrant is the safest place to release your child to school property or to have them meet you at dismissal. Please encourage age appropriate children to walk to and from school with friends and siblings. We appreciate your support in ensuring the safety of all students.
