There are different traffic flow patterns for morning drop off and afternoon pickup. There are videos below as a visual aid; however, it may be useful to first READ the description and then watch the videos.
The morning flow (in addition to the video, see the drawing below)
If you have been assigned to the "yellow" group, your entrance is the one just west of the church, so if you are coming up Old Antonia Road from the I-55 direction, you will turn left just after the church. If you are approaching from the other direction, you will turn right just before the church. Pull up toward the cafeteria for drop-off, or if you have Pre-K3 students, you may pull up closer to Holy Family Hall (HFH). If you need to park and get out of the car, please park BEHIND HFH along the fenceline.
If you are in the “green” group, and approaching from I-55, you will turn left just before the church. Continue straight up toward the statue for drop-off near the breezeway. Conversely if you are approaching from the opposite direction, you will turn right just after the church. To exit, take a left down the parking bay striped with green lines.
If you are in the “blue” group and approaching from I-55, you will turn left just before the church. Then turn left immediately and proceed down to the third parking bay, striped with blue lines, and turn right. Drop-off is near the gym. Then proceed to the exit by coming down the parking bay in front of the CCC.
The afternoon pick-up pattern facilitates safety and efficiency. Please take note of the following guidelines that are demonstrated in the videos:
YELLOW, GREEN, and BLUE will ALL access the property at the entrance between the rectory and Holy Family Hall/Food pantry, which is the furthest west entrance. Immediately, the following will happen:
Yellow group will proceed straight, take a left at the café, proceed as far up toward Old Antonia Road as possible, forming 3 lanes
Green and Blue will turn right immediately, then go left around the Food Pantry, behind the school, and emerge near the gym/Corpus Christi Center. NOTE WELL the “Do Not Block” fire lane area prominently marked on the pavement at that corner. Take a left at the front of the gym.
Green lane will proceed ahead and turn right into the parking bay lined with green stripes.
Blue lane will turn right into the parking bay lined with blue stripes
Pull all the way up, filling all 5 lanes.It is imperative that you pull up as close as possible to the car in front of you to maximize the number of parked vehicles. This makes it safer for the children to cross into the lot to find their car.
