BHMS News

We have received numerous phone calls about a carpool lane situation in the morning that is causing concern for student safety, and a considerable back-up of cars, often well on to Quarton Road. Some families are pulling in to the carpool lane before the building opens at 7:55 a.m., and having their students wait in the car until the building opens. If you arrive early and choose to have your student stay in the car until 7:55, please do not wait in the carpool lane. Instead, you are welcome to park in the the lot near the tennis courts until your student is ready to exit from the car. 

The carpool lane is intended to be a dynamic line where cars pull up and students are dropped off from the right lane only. When cars park in the right lane and wait, other families who wish to drop their students off immediately either get stuck in the right lane until traffic clears, or are forced to pull in to the left lane to drop their student off. This presents a considerable safety concern for students, who are then crossing the left lane in front of traffic. Thank you for your support, understanding and compliance.
