McKinley Palm Street School Entrance

33245-nzcle4

In an effort to mitigate some of the traffic on Felton Street, we are opening the gate on Palm Street each morning at 8:10. A staff member will be on duty and will direct children to the playground to line up. The gate will be closed just before 8:25am so the staff member can join his/her class.

This will be done on a trial basis. If access is used by families, we will continue using this entrance, if not, we will reevaluate.

Thank you,

Principal Ganderton

A Message from Principal Ganderton

33245-NZCLE4.jpgDear McKinley Families,

We have a problem and a proposed solution.

Afternoon pick up is a problem.

Cars are blocking neighbors driveways, folks are double parking on our terribly narrow streets and kids – our most precious resource – are crossing the street between vehicles.

I’m asking for your help. Please leave all neighbor’s driveways open so they are available to owners. Sadly, some of our neighbors have had McKinley families refuse to move. This is unfortunate and reflects poorly on our otherwise awesome school community.

When approaching McKinley, please drive on Felton from SOUTH to NORTH. We checked with the city and were notified that they are unable to consider signage (with requests to drive in one direction only as school gets out) without a collective, unanimous agreement of all homeowners who are impacted. If our voluntary efforts are ineffective and concerns continue, we will examine next steps with the city.

Our collective commitment is to the safety and well-being of the children in our charge. Your support during afternoon pick up is most appreciated.

With thanks in advance,
Deb Ganderton
