The start of the school year is always a little crazy! Many parents want to walk their students into school, many are trying to navigate the carpool line for the first time, and the buses always run a little more slowly in the first few weeks.
If you are coming to the school during the first weeks of school, PLEASE keep these safety/traffic tips in mind:
KIDS ARE EVERYWHERE: Please watch carefully! Follow instructions of the crossing guards and school staff - their entire focus is to keep our kids safe when kids and cars are in the same places!
CARPOOL LANE: Carpool is in the lower parking lot. Do NOT drop students off in the bus circle or in front of the school. Approach carpool from the north side of the school, because there is NO LEFT TURN into the carpool lot in the morning. There is also NO LEFT TURN out of the carpool lot. Left turns at this spot are dangerous - there is a posted sign at the lot entrance, and Dunwoody Police issue tickets.
PARKING: We have limited on-campus parking - there are 4 visitor spots in the lower parking lot. During morning bus hours, do NOT park in the bus circle! Too many cars prevent the buses from entering/leaving this lot. The best place to park is in the extra lot to the north of the school off Peachford Road, between the middle school and Chesnut. Then enjoy the walk to Chesnut and enter the front doors!
NEIGHBORHOOD NO PARKING ZONES: There is NO parking on either side of Brookhurst Dr. for the first block of that street, where it meets N. Peachtree Rd. This was changed last year at the request of Brookhurst Dr. residents. There is street parking available on Dunhaven Rd, the first side street off Brookhurst and some parking farther down Brookhurst. Remember to only park on ONE side of the street (follow the lead of cars already parked), only park in the direction of traffic, and never block a driveway or fire hydrant.
We're sorry we missed you! But, here's what you need to register when you come in:
- Bring this: Check or cash for purchasing student agenda, and optional items such as school store merchandise, Friends of Chesnut Annual Fund donations and car magnet
- And: Your student!
