Dear Parents,        

           This is effective immediately!  Due to safety issues, we are asking that you follow the parking lot safety precautions closely.  Come in on the side of the barn and leaving towards 3rd Street.  If you are leaving the parking lot to go towards Sequatchie Valley Electric, please park in the left lane, lane one.  If you are leaving the parking lot to go towards Tracy City, please park in the right lane, lane four.  Please fill up the lane and move to the next lane.  We have some parents not pulling up in their lane to the last car.  We must have everyone’s cooperation on this matter.  Please do not leave a car’s length of space between your car and the one in front of you.  We want every child to be able to locate their ride safely!

 We can not and will not allow CHILDREN TO WALK TO THE FAIR BARN!  If you park at the barn and wait, your child will be held on the breezeway until every car has left the parking lot.  Then you will have to pull up and pick up your child.  The students’ safety is of the utmost importance to us.  These rules are needed for the safety of our students, their families, and our faculty that work in the parking lot each afternoon.

  Lane five is for parents waiting on high school students, or coming inside to meet with a teacher. If you park in this lane, be prepared to wait!

          NO PARKING in the teacher parking lot in front of the school (morning or evening).  This is for our teachers to be able to get parked and ready for classes on time and to be able to leave in the evening without the chance of a student getting hurt running through the parking lot.   If you are dropping students off for, or picking them up from the buses, they must be dropped off/picked up in the CAR RIDER PARKING LOT!     NO EXCEPTIONS! 

In the morning, please do not get out of your car if you are in the three lanes closest to the breezeway.  These three lanes are for drop off only.  If you are entering the school, please park on the far right side (lane 5).  We appreciate your help with this!  Safety is our priority!


Thank you,


Glenda Dykes
