Car Loop procedures

Posted by:
  • Please remember that you may not drop your child off before 7:45 a.m. Staff members begin their duties at 7:45 a.m. Prior to this, supervision is not available.

  • Also, keep in mind that some employees do not report to work until 7:45 a.m.; therefore, please do not block the employees lot lining up for the morning drop-off.

  • The drop off lane (in the faculty lot) is for students that are able to get in and out of the car independently. Please work with your child to be able to get in and out of the car independently.

  • Our Bus Loop may not be used by cars, for any reason, between 7:30-8:15 am and 2:15-3:00 pm. No Parking, even temporarily during those times.

Fire Lanes/Car Loops Policy

This serves as a reminder that parking in designated fire lanes and/or bus loops is prohibited. This prohibition extends to staff, students, visitors, spectators at athletic events, day care vans, and after-school activity vans such as karate centers, clubs, etc.
Any vehicle parked in a fire lane or obstructing a fire hydrant must be moved to an authorized parking space.

Maryland Motor Vehicle Law§ 21-101.1(b)2,3 states,
A person may not drive a motor vehicle in violation of any provision of this title on any property that is owned by or under the control of this State or any of its political subdivisions, county boards of education, or community colleges and that is open to vehicular traffic and used by the public in general. Any person who violates any provision of this subsection is in violation of the law to the same extent and is subject to the same penalty as if the motor vehicle were driven on a highway.

As you know, in a critical emergency, the loss of even one minute caused by vehicles blocking fire and police department access can become critical. If you have any questions, contact the Supervisor of Transportation, at 410-923-7884.
