With the warmer temperatures finally upon us, arrival time at BPS will now return to the pre-cold weather days where students will be enjoying the fresh air as they line up outside by their designated arrival doors waiting for the first bell to ring each morning. In an effort to keep the flow of traffic moving and multiple drop off points along the school side curbs of Spruce Street and Brookside Place free of any parked vehicles, parents/guardians wishing to park their vehicles and wait with or in the vicinity of their son/daughter’s line up location are encouraged to park along Beech Street and walk to BPS. Every attempt is being made at the school level to secure an outside supervisory presence at each arrival door (especially at the primary levels K-2) so that parents/guardians feel comfortable just dropping off and going on their way.

A sincere thank you is in order for everyone working together to help expedite the process of morning drop off. Especially now in the winter season, taking advantage of the wonderfully convenient and safe cutouts in the snow our BPS custodians have diligently worked to create has enabled this process to move along relatively smoothly. Several other factors have been major contributors in adding to this success of morning arrival time. The fact that the majority of parents/guardians turning onto Brookside from Spruce are making right hand turns has helped increase the flow of traffic tremendously. Additionally, keeping the curbside along Spruce and Brookside the school perimeter free of parked vehicles has enabled a steady flow of cars to pull over, drop off and be on their way. Finally, congestion in and around Brookside and Spruce has been severely lessened by those individuals making the choice to utilize Beech Street as a wonderful location to park and walk with their child (which may include other children in a car pool) by way of the crossing guard.
