Mr. Keeler has asked us to distribute this important information regarding changes to our pick-up procedures in front of Lockwood at the end of the school day:

Safety First – Required Traffic Changes

As a school, we work tirelessly to ensure student safety. Currently, the greatest safety challenge facing Lockwood is the flow of traffic on Lockwood Road. Tuesday, we had a Traffic Safety Committee meeting in which school staff, PTA representatives, district security and transportation personnel gathered to discuss concerns for traffic on Lockwood Road. From this conversation, we identified safety and traffic laws that impact the flow of traffic on Lockwood Road. These changes will create challenges for drivers. Yet, we do not get to change traffic laws to fit needs at Lockwood. We adjust our behaviors to comply with the law.

Traffic Requirements:

· The walkways (shoulders) and bicycle lanes along Lockwood Road cannot be utilized for parking or as a waiting area for student pick-up. Parking or waiting in these areas are traffic violations.

· Cars that arrive early for student pickup, but are blocked from entering our pick-up zone cannot stop in the lane of traffic and impede traffic on Lockwood Road.

· If cars cannot enter our school pick-up zone, then drivers need to circle the school using the roads around Lockwood and Kenmore Middle School until the flow of traffic into our school has started.

· Drivers are welcome to stagger their arrival times for student pick-up between 3:55 and 4:05. Once the flow of traffic for student pick-up begins to leave Lockwood, drivers are able to wait their turn to enter our school property on Lockwood Road. If the flow of traffic is not moving, we cannot block the lane of traffic on Lockwood Road.

· The school pick-up zone speed limit is 5 mph.

The Traffic Safety Committee will continue to meet on Tuesday mornings until we have resolved this critical need. In the meantime, we are asking for and needing the support of our Lockwood community to understand that traffic laws are not the decision of the school. Our school will develop the best options for adhering to traffic regulations while providing safe and orderly school procedures for student drop-off and pick-up at school. We will update our community on a weekly basis until the Traffic Safety Committee feels we have resolved this issue to the best of our ability. If you have any questions or ideas for our Traffic Safety Committee, you can email me at gkeeler@nsd.org. Knowing your needs and ideas for finding a solution to this difficult situation is the goal of our committee. The notes from our first Traffic Safety Committee meeting is on the back of this traffic letter.

Thank you for your support!
