Dear Parents,

 

As we prepare to begin the 21/22 session we have several campus access guidelines and safety protocols that we need to establish to get the year off to a smooth start. If you do not drop off your wards and you have a driver, please be sure you explain the flow to them. Before you begin reading, please take a moment to look through the 3 links below.

For the health and safety of our community, we have a strict policy on the flow of campus traffic.

  • Drivers that do not follow the security guards or management instructions will lose campus access. If your driver does not follow the rules, please expect a call from the Administration.
  • Do not come before your group timing. The group timing is designed to reduce the amount of traffic on campus at any given time.
  • Have your wards ready to disembark as quickly as possible.
  • Backpacks and bags should be between the student’s feet in their floorboard area, allowing them to grab them and get down quickly.

AFTERNOON PICK UP

All afternoon ARIS traffic is expected to Queue in the INNER right lane, if coming from Shiashie. Do not create a second and third lane to cross the right lane that is waiting.

The safety of your children and all of our students is our number one priority. We have established several procedures to keep all ARIS students safe as well as providing a smooth transition from your car to our care. Please review the procedures below to ensure a prompt and secure drop-off and pick-up.

Let’s begin with the pick-up/drop-off schedule.

Pick-up/Drop-off

  • Follow all directives given by the East Legon Traffic Police. Do not create a second or third lane that blocks the opposite traffic.
  • Enter the main Gate and proceed to your designated COLOR ZONE drop-off area. Based on your car STICKER ZONE COLOR, the security will direct you to your Color Zone and valet-designated drop-off area inside the gate.
  • Notice and obey all posted signs.
  • Cars should pull forward up to the farthest cone so that we can unload many cars at a time. Students should only be released at the cones.
  • Students should be ready to exit vehicles immediately and only from the passenger side.
  • Cars in line should pull up as far to the right as possible to allow for the flow of traffic.
  • There is NO PARENT PARKING in any lot from the hours of 7:30 am to 9:00 am. All school business will begin at 9:00 am.
  • The EXIT GATE onto Boundry Rd is a 2 LANE EXIT One LEFT turn and 1 RIGHT turn from the valet lines. Turn on your indicators so The East Legon Traffic Police will assist you to exit.

Pick-up

  • The designated car rider pick-up traffic will flow the same way as drop off in the morning.
  • Students enter vehicles on the passenger side only.
  • Staff/Student volunteers will escort all students so there is no need for drivers to exit vehicles.
  • Vehicles picking up students must display the assigned COLOR sticker in the front driver side window.
  • Students will only be released to authorized individuals. ARIS Security Identification may be requested if an individual is unrecognized by staff.
  • Parents wishing to pick up students before the pick-up time must coordinate with the campus supervisor (Madame Georgina or Madame Mariam).

  • If you do not see your ward and you are at the front of the line, you must circle until you see them. The security will not allow cars to remain stationary while waiting for students to come. You will have to keep moving.
