CHANGES TO PICK UP LOCATION:

The 2020-2021 school day will be adjusted as follows for the first semester (August-December):

  • NEW THIS YEAR:  Students with last names starting with A-I will be dropped off and picked up on Wilson Street.  Students with the last names J-Z will be dropped off and picked up on Park Avenue. 
  • ALL PK students and siblings (regardless of last initial) will be dropped off and picked up on Wilson Street. 
  • All Kindergarten students and siblings (regardless of last initial) will be dropped off and picked up on Park Avenue.  

PHASE 2 Dismissal Procedures:

  • PK and Kindergarten students choosing to dismiss prior to nap/snack time will be picked up at 1:00 p.m. at the Park Avenue loading dock.
  • PK and Kindergarten students choosing to stay through nap/snack time and 1st-3rd grade students will be dismissed at 2:30 p.m. and must be picked up no later than 2:50 p.m. from their assigned pick up location (Wilson or Park Avenue).
  • 4th-8th grade students will all dismiss at 3:00 p.m. and must be picked up by 3:30 p.m. from their assigned pick up location (Wilson or Park Avenue).

Traffic Flow Specifics:
Guidelines proposed by the City of Lake Charles and the Alliance Transportation Group require that Park Avenue pick-up cars approach the Park Avenue lot eastbound from Lakeshore Drive ONLY. Wilson Street pick-up cars should approach Wilson Street eastbound from Dr. Michael DeBakey Drive ONLY. This will help with the overall traffic congestion on Ryan Street caused by cars stacking on Ryan Street in order to turn onto Park Avenue, as well as Dr. Michael DeBakey Drive. In addition, families are asked to not block driveways while waiting in the pick-up lines.

Name Signs:
Please display name signs (provided at Back to School Event days and on the first day of school) while in pick up line.
