Car Line Clarification

Posted by Mollie Landry on August 23, 2016 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

I apologize for creating confusion when I was describing the process to people unfamiliar with the tradition here at SES.

Morning drop off line is now, and has traditionally been, down St. Peter Street.  That remains the same.  It is fine to come down St. Peter in the morning because the line does not form until after the buses pass.

After school drop off car line is now, and has traditionally been, as illustrated in the map sent home and previously posted on weekly notes.  (Down Hwy 403, around the corner of St. Elizabeth St. and St. Peter and then in front of the school on Convent Street. )

Please note that morning drop off is beginning to form a line around 7:20 and often continues past the bell for the start of school.  Please note that our school bells are now accurate (they were previously off by 3 minutes), so consider dropping your children off earlier.  The line is very short or non-existent between 7:00 and 7:15.  We are blessed to have a number of new students here at SES and many little students who need to be buckled into or unbuckled from car seats.

After School Car Line

Posted by Mollie Landry on August 10, 2016 under Uncategorized | Comments are off for this article

car line flow

First place in the car line at SES is auctioned off each year at our SES Fair.  This year, Jenny and Robbie Guillot bought “First Place in Car line.”  Please allow them (or the children’s grandparents) to get ahead of you in line when they come to pick up the children.

If you are new to SES, you may not know the car line flow that is part of our tradition.  Please review the attached file for clarification, but this is the procedure.

  • Cars line up along the fence on St. Peter Street (to allow the buses to pass).  The line forms around the corner of St. Elizabeth St. and St. Peter and then goes down St. Elizabeth St. and turns onto Hwy 403 (St. Vincent).  Once the line gets to the Community Center parking lot on Hwy 403, parents drive into the parking lot and make a loop.
  • Please be courteous and do not cut the line by coming down St. Peter Street and waiting at the corner or by coming down Hwy 403 and cutting in front of waiting cars.
