Parking Lot Safety

Hi Marshall Lane families,

In response to parent concerns about ways to increase traffic safety, the district is arranging for the installation of speed bumps at the upper lot to discourage excessive speed during student drop-off and pick-up. Speed bumps are already in place in the lower lot, so adding this element of safety helps us set a consistent expectation for drivers on campus (a picture of the engineering proposal is attached). 
One thing that attached the aerial photo makes clear—and over which we have no control—is the parking set up that requires cars to back up into oncoming (or waiting) traffic when attempting to leave. It's a reminder to please exercise caution, awareness, and patience with other drivers during drop-off and pick-up. 
Thanks for your help in making sure students and families remain safe at our school.
