With spring sports beginning and the need for more parent pick-ups after school, our parking lot is becoming increasingly busy at the end of the day. To ensure the safety of all our students and staff, and to help with school dismissal, and parents we are asking the following:

  • All parents/guardians picking up their children at the end of the day are to park in a designated parking spot in the Loughborough PS lot.
  • No cars should be parked in the bus loading zone or in front of the school. Parents of younger students are asked to pick up their children in front of the school.
  • If there are no parking spots at LPS parents/guardians are to park in the lower Sydenham High School parking lot and utilize the cross walk and crossing guard to pick up their children.
  • Parents and guardians can wait for their children near the daycare entrance of the school or across the street in front of Sydenham HS.

We appreciate that this is a change in our parking lot practice, but with an empty parking lot, a cross walk, and a crossing guard on site we feel this is the best course of action in ensuring our students are the safest they can be at the end of the day.

Over the past several weeks we have slowly began the change with the feedback being very positive. While we are implementing this slowly over the final weeks of the school year, our hope is that parents can begin the process as soon as possible.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
