FCA Traffic Patterns and Guidelines

 
Please read these guidelines carefully and give us your full cooperation.
 
Enter FCA property only from Whittier Street. DO NOT ENTER THE PROPERTY FROM
N. COLUMBUS ST. WHEN THE CONES ARE SET OUT (7:30 – 8:30 a.m. AND 2:45 – 3:15 p.m.).
 
Morning traffic flow is counter-clockwise around the entire building from 7:30–8:30 a.m.
All traffic will enter from Whittier Dr. and exit onto N. Columbus St.
 
Afternoon traffic flow:
All traffic will enter from Whittier St. Traffic may exit onto N. Columbus St. or onto Whittier St. using the lane on the South side of the building adjacent to the School Bus Zone. Use this lane with caution, but always give school buses the right of way.
 
Building Entrance Use:
In the morning, students/parents may enter the building only through doorway “B”. For your safety, exit the building using the same doorway. (Do not exit the ministry center wing through doorway “C or D” forcing you to cross traffic lanes to return to your car).
At dismissal time, doorway “B” will be opened at 2:55pm and doorway “C” will be opened at 3:00pm for parents to enter the building for picking up children at the end of the school day. You may exit through these same doorways. Do not use doorway “D” or “E” to exit building.
 
The drives and parking areas on the Whittier Street side of the building will be reserved for church and academy staff parking. Do not enter this area with your personal vehicle.
 
Park in marked parking spots only. Do not park or stand in traffic lane areas, or in parking slots right against the building except near Door “B” at dismissal time (2:45-3:15PM).. Please do not park in the “handicapped slots” unless you display your handicapped sign. Cones will be set out marking those slots not to be used for parking purposes.
 
Limit your speed to 10 MPH while on school grounds and always travel in the direction of the painted arrows, especially in the parking areas. If you come face-to-face with another vehicle in the parking slot isles, the right-of-way always goes to the person traveling in the same direction as the painted arrows!
 
Always give public school buses the right-of-way! Give priority to any bus trying to enter or exit our property. If following a bus onto our property, do not pass around the bus on either side.
 
 
Your cooperation is imperative for the safety of our children! Always obey our traffic attendants and please use extreme caution anytime you operate a vehicle on school property.
