Traffic Pattern at Brooklyn Public Schools

Morning and Afternoon Drop Off/Pick Up

Mid-day Preschool Pick Up/Drop Off

I am asking that parents wait until 15 minutes before the scheduled drop off or pick up time before lining up at the school.  We want to be sure our school grounds are safe and that we follow the emissions laws.  Some parents arrive an hour before dismissal time.  This is a long time to have someone outside of the building sitting in a car and a long time for car emissions to be exhausted into the air.  
Please follow the guidelines below.

Morning Drop Off: Line up 8:15, Drop Off 8:30-8:45 
Morning PreK Pick Up: Line up 11:25, Pick Up 11:40-11:50 
Afternoon PreK Drop Off: Line up 12:00, Pick Up 12:15-12:25 
Morning PreK Pick Up:  Line up 11:25, Pick Up 11:40-11:50
Afternoon Pick Up:  Line up 3:00, Pick Up 3:15

Thank you for your cooperation!
