Tipton-Rosemark Academy New Traffic Patterns for 2010-2011
Whether at morning drop off or afternoon pickup, our primary goal is the safety of all our children. We hope we have improved our traffic situation this year. Please adhere to the following directions when dropping off and picking up your child/children from TRA. We will need for all our drivers to cooperate and follow the stated directions for morning drop off and afternoon dismissal.
You may begin dropping students off at 7:15, and pickup time will be at 2:55 for lower school and 3:00 for upper school. Please do NOT drop your children off prior to this time as there will be no one on duty to supervise them. If you pick up your child after 3:15, they will be sent to After School Care (Rebel Care) for a nominal charge.
Please enter our campus from our main entrance, the new road on the north side of our elementary school, by turning left from the north or turning right from the south lanes of Rosemark Road. Two of the three lanes (middle lane and right hand lane) will be one-way traffic only during morning drop offs and afternoon pick-ups. Please follow the new road as it winds around to the front of the high school. High school and/or middle grade students can be dropped off in the front of the high school.
During afternoon dismissal, high school drivers will be allowed to use the far right lane of the new road to exit the campus. Vehicles exiting on this road at afternoon dismissal must turn right only. During afternoon dismissal if you have picked up all your riders at the high school entrance, you should enter the outside lane. When you reach the corner of the middle school, you will be allowed to turn left and follow the road around the old gym and exit onto Rosemark Road. Please follow the road behind the upper school (high school and middle grades building) until it ends at the drive in front of the middle and elementary schools. All other students may be dropped off or picked up in front of these two entrances. We will have our staff in this area to help with the loading and unloading of students and directing traffic. Please put the name(s) of the child/children to be picked up on a large card inside your passenger side sun visor. This will allow us to get the students ready and speeds up the loading.
When exiting our campus at either the old high school exit or the elementary exit, please turn left onto Rosemark Road. When you get to the 4-way Stop, you may get to Hwy 14 by turning left or going straight ahead or you may turn right on Kerr-Rosemark. You will not be allowed to turn right on Rosemark Road until the bulk of the traffic has subsided. Please note, do not use the middle road on the south side of the elementary school as an entrance. THE SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS IS OUR PRIMARY FOCUS.
PLEASE BE PATIENT AND COOPERATE.
