•On the circular drive, children should be dropped off only at curbside. Left lane is for egress only.III. PICK-UP PROCEDURES
Here are parent options at pick up. All patterns require cars to line up at one of four locations.
Cars will NOT be allowed to line up in lanes immediately adjacent to schools. Buses only will be in these lanes.
Option I: Enter Bogert School via access road adjacent to firehouse and proceed to line up in circle.
Option II: Enter by roadway SOUTH of tennis courts. Proceed to either:
a.Staff parking lot (fill in empty parking spaces) and then proceed to form a double line up. This U-shaped line up accesses AND leaves by the roadway south of tennis courts.
b.Form a double line up in parking lot which faces Bogert School. Cars in this lineup will be dismissed only after all busses leave at about 2:30 p.m. This line up leaves by roadway in front of Bogert School.
Option III (new since 06/07 school year): Vehicles may enter lanes NORTH of the tennis courts (those reserved for busses only in the morning). Form a double line with lead cars parked adjacent to pagoda. Personnel will direct you. These cars will leave by driving forward and egressing behind cars in Option II-b.
•Vehicles must not be left unattended.
•Be prepared to move as soon as you are able.
•Cars line up in side parking lot of Bogert School around traffic circle
•Drivers who must leave their vehicles must park in the visitor lot.
Dismissal patterns at Cavallini will be the same as last year:
1.Students who ride the busses will be dismissed to cross the street and board the busses at Bogert.
2.Because of the installation of a wider fire lane, there will only be two lanes of traffic for cars in the Cavallini circle. Line up and pick up will be the same except no vehicles will be allowed in the fire lane immediately adjacent to the school.
•Children should NOT be picked up on West Saddle River Road.
•All cars should enter through lower driveway. Cars should turn right and proceed through the lower lot and form two double rows facing west. It is important that the lanes around the parking area in the upper parking lot be left clear in case of emergency. Do not park or stand in the fire lanes adjacent to the school.
•Cars that are picking up along the circular drive should move to the farthest point of the curve (past the flag pole).
•There is no parking or standing in the designated fire lane.
•Drivers who wait for a child should park in the lower lot.
