PICKING UP AND DROPPING OFF STUDENTS
Nibley Park (K-8) is a proud “Top Walking and Biking School” with a two mile maximum school boundary with no school bus service.
As more students are being driven to school in the colder months, we want to make sure that all of our students are arriving safely at school and our drop-off and pick up procedures are being followed.The school was designed without a drop-off lane. The west parking lot is close enough for students to walk to and from cars.
PLEASE drop off and pick up from the west side parking lot. The RIGHT Lane in the round-about is a FIRE LANE. The driver may not exit the vehicle at any time. The left lane is a THROUGH LANE. Students may not exit the vehicle from the left side lane at any time. Crossing guards are stationed there with “Safety Patrol” students to help your child walk the short distance on the sidewalk to the school. We are also asking parents to not leave their cars idling or park, and do not leave cars during the rush hour before and/or after school. Thank you for your support and maintaining safety at our school.
Nibley Park has two places to park. One is on the east side of the building, and where teachers usually park. The other is the west side parking lot in the front of the building. There are a few parking spots near the building between the fire lane. This parking area is for quick visits to the school, and not for long term parking. Please do NOT park in the fire lane on the right hand side, nor the left side the passing lane. These lanes are for the purpose of emergency vehicles. You will be asked to remove your vehicle if you park in these lanes.
