Car riders / Student drop-off
Published by Wendy Bozeman on January 2, 2020
.....................................................................................................................................................................................

NEW TO PFMS? PLEASE FOLLOW THE TRAFFIC PATTERN TO ALLEVIATE CONGESTION:

To improve safety for our students and help move the car lines along, we have a “eight car” drop off  for car riders. The first four (4) cars in each car line will exit their children at the same time. Once the children are clear, the next four cars in each line will pull up. Parents: please make sure your students have all items in-hand and are prepared to exit the vehicle immediately.

When you exit,  all cars turning right onto Ramsey Street/401 South will need to be in the right lane. All cars turning left onto Ramsey Street/401 North will need to be in the left lane. Remember not to cross over the yellow line once you get to the flag pole. Hopefully we will see an improvement in the traffic congestion and save you some time.

Car riders may not be dropped off in the back parking lot.
