At Tuscan School the safety and well-being of our students and staff are our top priority. The following safety practices are required to increase student safety and should not be dismissed as a matter of convenience or choice.
The majority of Tuscan parents abide by drop off, pick up and parking rules and we sincerely thank you! Unfortunately, we continue to observe a few who continue to display unsafe and hazardous behaviors when arriving to and leaving from Tuscan School.
When crossing Harvard Avenue, please walk children to the corner of Harvard and Osborne and cross Harvard Avenue with the supervision of the Crossing Guard. Children may not cross Harvard Avenue unsupervised.
All children should exit vehicles onto a sidewalk, never into the street. Allowing children to exit vehicles into traffic to cross the street, especially between stopped or parked cars is illegal and extremely unsafe for children.
Read More about the Drop Off Zone, The Bridge & The Staff Parking Lot:
The Drop Off Zone is designated for students in Grades 3 – 5 only. Students in Grades K- 2 must not be dropped off at the Drop Off Zone. K-2 students must be escorted directly to their teacher at the designated line up location on the blacktop or to the office upon tardy arrival.
Strongly note children are not permitted to walk through the staff parking lot at any time. Children using the bridge to arrive and leave campus from Tuscan Road must proceed directly to the blacktop or front door via the playground. Please encourage and remind children not to walk through or run around the staff parking lot.
Staff Parking Lot
Between the hours of 8am and 4 pm, only regular Tuscan Staff can drive their vehicles into the parking lot. The staff parking lot is not to be used as a drop-off or pick-up area. Handicapped drivers with the appropriate license plates may use the staff parking lot and the handicapped spaces at the rear of the lot. All unauthorized vehicles parked in the staff lot will be ticketed and/or towed.
Tuscan is an outstanding school for learning that will continue to become stronger when we collectively put forth every effort to do our personal best. We appreciate your cooperation and continued support to keep our students safe and well-educated.
