Updated drop-off/pick-up plan

An amended pick-up and drop-off plan has been implemented as the Tuesday, Sept. 5, starting date for Delano Public Schools approaches.

Anyone who drops students off at the high/middle school should be aware of new drop-off and pick-up locations for this school year. All student drop-offs or pick-ups by private vehicles must occur in the tennis court parking lot or at the Tiger Drive curb on the east side of the middle school (see map included with this article).

Drivers should enter the tennis court lot at the south entrance and exit at the north access. Drop-off and pick-up lanes will be designated on either side of the lot, with a one-way thru lane for moving traffic in the middle. From the place where they are dropped off, students must move to the north side of the tennis court lot and cross Tiger Drive at the stop sign and crosswalk. School staff will be on hand to ensure a safe crossing.

No parking will be allowed in the tennis court lot from 6 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on school days. Signs and road markings will be in place to direct motorists.

Additional information

* The tennis lot is also the pickup location for the bus heading to the Wright Technical Center, which will depart at 7:25 a.m.

* Last year’s drop-off and pick-up location at the middle school entrance will not be used for the full 2017-18 year due to construction.

* The expanded intermediate school parking lot will be available for student use as well.
