Parking Lot Safety

Sep 17 2014

Important Safety Message regarding parking lot safety at Gardiner


We highly encourage students who are scheduled for busses to ride them. It is one of the safest ways to get to and from school. We need to get close to 800 students safely home from school. The parking lot at Gardiner gets very congested with additional traffic. If you need to drive your student please keep the following notes in mind.


Two basic rules.

1. Keep the center lanes moving and do not block when turning into the parking lot.

2. Pull as far forward as you can in the parking lot.


There are three lanes of traffic in the front of the building.

Lane 1:  The lane closest to the curb can be used to drop off and pick up. Pull as far forward in this lane as you can. Pull forward to the last speed bump.

Lane 2:  The center lane is for moving traffic only. Cars should NOT STOP in this lane.

Lane 3:  The lane furthest from the school, closest to parked cars is for drop off and pick up. Pull as far forward in this lane as you can. Pull forward to the last speed bump.


  • Please watch for students crossing lanes of traffic as you enter and exit our parking lot.
  • Please keep entrance to Gardiner clear for busses on Hood street during afternoon pick up. Yield to the far right until you can completely turn into the parking lot pick up lanes.
  • Round about: Used for busses and specialized student transportation during drop off and pick up hours
