Fire Lane Policy
From the Department of Public Safety:
the Fire Marshall's Office, no one is allowed to park in a Fire
Lane, whether there is a driver in the vehicle or not, at
any time other than the following:
- 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day
and 30 minutes after the end of the school day (this does
not include the After School Program nor any other activity
at the school)
- When passengers are actively loading or unloading during the
day. This would cover students unloading in the morning at
the beginning of the school day.
The focus of this information is to reemphasize that the only time a
vehicle would be allowed in a Fire Lane would be to actively
drop-off and/or pick-up a student when there is no waiting.
Other times, such as After School Program or after school
activities would not be included.
Please read the notification from the Department of Public
Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the
