Arrival & Departure

Student safety is very important at Hardy.  We enlist the active support of all parents in this commitment and urge you to take the following actions:
1. Establish the safest route to and from school with your child.
2. Monitor your child's route from time to time.
3. Instruct your child to cross streets at the intersections and/or crosswalks – never between parked cars.
4. Instruct your child to look both ways on a green light before entering the crosswalk.
5. Instruct your child to walk when crossing streets.
6. If your child is picked up at the school, instruct him/her to stay seated to wait in the STUDENT WAITING AREA for the driver to pick them up. 

No student will be allowed to cross traffic in the parking lot.  Pedestrians, both adults and children, must use the yellow crosswalks painted on the blacktop when walking to/from parked cars. We ask all drivers to follow directions of the 4th & 5th grade student "Safeties", staff members, and volunteers who monitor the arrival & departure of students in the Traffic Circle. 

If your child is transported to and from school by car, PARENTS ARE ASKED TO OBSERVE THE "NO PARKING" AREAS designated by red-painted curbs and/or signs posted in those areas. Parking in RED ZONES IS PROHIBITED by law for safety reasons, as well as to allow the free flow of traffic. Do not turn off your engine or leave your car unattended in the red zone. The west playground gates will be open for parent parking twenty minutes prior to the close of school. Please follow the traffic pattern as indicated and yield to pedestrians. PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE PRIOR TO 2:00 PM (11:10 AM)—our parents are responsible for causing severe traffic conditions on Montezuma Rd. Children will not be released prior to the dismissal bell, so there is no need to contribute to the congestion.
