I have a request that will help with our morning traffic greatly.
Please do not make turns left or right on Quintara when there is a big line up of cars in the white zone; this holds up the entire line. Instead, please continue straight until Rivera; that will help us move the traffic out of the zone FASTER. Please do not double park on that interim street because you will hold up the line.
The same families come at 8:37 am or later every day and expect to be able to enter the school on time by 8:40 am. Please note that it takes more than 3 minutes to go through the drop zone at this busy time. Give yourself enough time to use the zone properly. Come early to avoid foot and vehicle traffic. There is no congestion at 8:15 when the drop zone starts. There is guaranteed congestion if you come at 8:30 or later.
If you would like to take advantage of this service, (this is a privilege and service that takes up a lot of staff and parent volunteer resources), please be courteous. Do not yell at the staff or volunteers that come half an hour earlier than everyone else to serve the children coming in cars. If you are running late and feel frazzled, please do not take it out on the adults trying to keep our kids safe. Please be a good example to our children.
If you have some helpful suggestions, please come early to help out and work in the zone to make it better. If you have a day where you could help for 20 minutes or so, grab an orange vest from the office and jump in to help with the car line. You can sign up on our school web page, robertlouisstevensonschool.org, as there are many vacant spots. We should not rely on just a handful of the same volunteers each day but should take shared responsibility of keeping our students safe.
The yard gate will be closed by 8:40 AM at intake. Cars have been pulling up at 8:40 and later, trying to send their children through the gate while intake has already started. These same cars do not pull up to the front of the zone but fling open their doors at the back of the zone in order to send their children through the gate late, holding up the line of cars behind them. We do not want to teach our children to interrupt and walk in during the flag salute or to push through other classes while they go into the building. Students will be considered late after 8:40 and should go through the front door for a tardy pass.
We are letting you know this in advance so you will please make adjustments to your mornings (or prepare things the previous night) if you are chronically running late. Our school day starts at 8:40 am, so make sure your child is here before that, ready and prepared for class.
It is fair and reasonable that we ask for your help and cooperation, as well as your respect and courtesy.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Diane Lau-Yee, Principal
請不要在Quintara街左轉或右轉，尤其白線上落區已有一條很長的車龍。請繼續直駛到Rivera街, 然後才左轉或右轉。 這可幫助車輛迅速離開白線上落區和使交通流暢。
請不要在這街中途位置雙線停車。因為這會延誤白線上落區上落, 使交通擁塞, 造成車龍。
早上8:15, 白線上落區開始, 這時間,非繁忙時間, 交通流暢, 沒有擁塞,沒有車龍。如果你在8:30或以後到達，一定有擁塞。
若你有好的建議，請早些到達學校, 來幫助白線上落區小孩子安全下車，使它更好。如果你有一天, 你可以幫助大約20分鐘左右，你可到辦公室拿一件橙色的背心穿上，然後到白線上落區幫助。
家長們, 我們現仍有許多空缺, 很需要家長義工。請到我們學校網頁報名:
