Parking Safety

Traffic on Campus

THE FIRST RULE TO BE OBSERVED BY ALL ADULTS DRIVING ON SCHOOL GROUNDS IS TO REMAIN CALM AND PATIENT!!! ALONG WITH THIS COMES WATCHFUL AND ATTENTIVE CONCERN FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE IN THE LOT.

Parents who display anger and annoyance while driving a vehicle become a serious threat to the safety of everyone and will be treated accordingly by school authorities. St. John’s PARKING LOT IS NOT A FREEWAY. Parents must leave their bad “freeway manners” behind when entering St. John’s lot and show the greatest care and concern for safety at all times.

It is imperative that parents respectfully adhere to all directions given by the traffic monitors. Cones indicate the flow of traffic, which needs to be maintained at all times. The pick-up and drop-off zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. Absolutely no parking. If parents need to leave their car for any reason (including saying good-bye to their child) they must find a parking place outside of the loading zone. Courtesy is expected from everyone during this sometimes stressful procedure.


IT IS NEVER PERMITTED TO USE A HAND HELD CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING A VEHICLE ON SCHOOL GROUNDS, TO EXCEED 10mph IN THE PARKING LOT, OR TO PARK EXCEPT IN DESIGNATED PARKING SPACES. THE SCHOOL RESERVES THE RIGHT TO FINE PARENTS IN VIOLATION OF THESE POLICIES. SUCH BEHAVIOR JEOPARDIZES THE SAFETY OF STUDENTS AND MAY BE PUNISHABLE BY ASKING THE FAMILY TO WITHDRAW THEIR CHILD(REN) FROM ST. JOHN’S.


Do you need family participation hours?

Morning Traffic Duty is a great way to earn 1/2 hour for 20 minutes of duty and you can now earn double hours (3 hrs.) for volunteering to do a full shift of lunch duty (from 11:30−1:05).
