New Traffic Pattern
A big change this year has taken place to our pick up and drop off procedures. As you enter TCE parking lot you will see new signs and lane markings/arrows indicating where you should proceed. The drive closest to the school is a DROP OFF only lane and is NOT for parking. This is a fire zone/restricted parking at all times. The front parking lot can now be entered heading South and parents are asked to park their vehicle and then come into the building to pick up their child at the end of the day. ALL vehicles will now exit at the South end of the parking lot in front of the Superintendent’s Office. There are signs and lane markings indicating the proper traffic pattern. This will create a traffic pattern of one way in the lot and one way out of the lot.
