Parent Pickup

Afternoon Pick Up Time: 3:25

We will utilize the same student pick up traffic route as we did last year. The image to the right highlights the traffic pattern for families to follow during dismissal each day. The BLUE arrows show the direction of traffic as families enter to pick up their child. The RED arrows show the path families should follow for exiting the parking lot.

● Be sure to take your first left once you pull into the parking lot from Scoville Road.

● We ask that you stay on this path only.

● Please be sure to yield at the spots shown to allow buses to flow into our bus lane and keep our students and staff safe.

● Please give buses the right of way.

● Please only exit to the RIGHT after picking up your child.

Keep our office staff updated. Please alert us prior to 11:15 AM on half days and 3:00 PM on full days of any changes to your child’s dismissal plan. You can email us at: pgsoffice@avon.k12.ct.us
