Pursuing Excellence for Tomorrows Challenges
CIS Daily Announcements
Attention Car Riders:
We continue to encourage parents to drop off as early as 6:55 a.m. as we have less traffic during the earliest portions of our drop-off window.
- Parents with students at CIS only should enter the CIS campus from Old Lexington Hwy and follow the traffic lines painted on the ground when dropping off or picking up students. Parents should drop off in the designated area (blue arrows above). Students can be dropped off or picked up between the music suite doors and the awning at the front of the school. Please follow the directions of the adults on duty in the car line, and pull as far forward as possible before dropping off your child. After drop off, parents should then move to the exit at Old Lexington Hwy (orange arrows above). The only place for students to be picked up in the afternoon is the front of the building. Parents are not permitted to escort their child through the car line to a parked car as this poses safety hazards for students and parents.
- Parents with students at CIS and CES should enter the CIS campus from Old Lexington Hwy and follow the traffic lines painted on the ground. CES students can be dropped off or picked up at the CES Preschool wing (green arrows above). Parents should then merge back into the CIS car rider line for drop off or pick up of CIS student(s). A crossing guard will normally be posted there to assist with traffic direction.
- Parents wishing to walk their students to the CIS doors should follow the traffic lines painted on the ground all the way around the car line and then use the visitor spots at the front of the school. Parents should not drop off students in other parking spaces and then walk students through traffic lines to the front of the school. The designated visitor parking spaces are the only place to park when dropping off students.
Cars are expected to pull up as far forward as is possible and to have students walk to the vehicle on the sidewalk. Absolutely NO student may be picked up or dropped off in the bus-loading zone located in the back of Chapin Intermediate School extending into the Chapin Elementary School area or at Crooked Creek Park.
The majority of buses that transport CIS students are at maximum capacity (locked out) and are unable to accept any riders not currently assigned to them. If you have any questions regarding buses or transportation, please call Chapin Transportation at 345-7133.
