Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

This is a reminder of our pick-up and drop-off procedures at Cardinal Ritter High School. In recent weeks, there have been individuals not following these guidelines which leads to blind spots and a less than ideal parking lot. Please be sure to follow the following:

1.)  Drop-off:  Students are to be dropped off on the EAST side of the building by the gym entrance. As a reminder, drop off cars should be parked to the right and moving traffic should be able to pass by on the left. Cars should never park or stop by the band room door on the south side of the building as this blocks vision and leads to traffic jams near the daycare. 

2.)  Pick-up:  Parents who are picking up their scholars are to start forming a line on EAST side of the building near the gym entrance. Parked cars should remain on the right and traffic should flow to the left. Cars should never park or stop by the band room door on the south side of the building as this blocks vision and leads to traffic jams near the daycare. 

Over the next week, we will have additional staff members outdoors to ensure that these procedures are followed to ensure the safety of all drivers in our parking lot.
