Letter from the Principal

Good morning:

Our parking lot will be used over the next few weeks for Sundance from 5 pm to 1:00 am. They will allow curbside pickup in our bus lane for parents who pick up their children from Homework Club, Camp Trailblazer, or Community Education programs,

Regular school day pick up and drop off should not be impacted.

I have noticed a heightened level of stress and subsequent breaking of rules by parents during pick up and drop off over the last couple of days at TSES and at my daughter's school, Ecker. I wonder if this is related to all of the traffic in Park City for skiing and Sundance?

Please be kinder, more patient, and safer than the person in front and in back of you. Do not go the wrong direction, make your own lane, or consider yourself the exception. Do not scream or honk at teachers, kids, or each other.

The safest pickup/drop off location is the curb. Believe it or not, when you completely follow the rules, it generally takes about 10 minutes. Do not use handicap parking unless you have a person in the car who needs to be close to the school so they can go inside or be picked up from the school. Do not make your child run across traffic to get to your car. Do not leave your car parked in the drop off lane. Babies, work schedules, tardiness for work or appointments, lack of sleep are reasons you've given us this week. Before you generate your excuse, ask yourself how it will sound to another parent or teacher, We will help in the event of a true emergency-please call the office and plan on arriving early.

Thank you for noticing and being courteous to our busses. They have tight schedules to maintain and take longer to navigate in and out of our traffic.

Lastly, breathe, smile, and notice our happy children-we can learn from their example and it starts with each one of us deciding we'll be a positive force. :-)

We've got this, right? I think 99% of you get an "A."
