Traffic Patterns

In order to keep students safe and make student drop-off/pick-up as efficient as possible, the following traffic patterns will be followed at each campus. These patterns were developed using observations over the past years, recommendations from law enforcement as well as parent, staff, and administrator input.
BHT Traffic Pattern
For arrival: Car riders enter BHT from the Culbert Street side of the school. Cars will enter the lower driveway on Culbert Street where a police officer should be directing traffic. Cars will pull all the way to the end of the curb, next to the door, where a BHT staff member will greet students.  
For dismissal: Car riders are assigned a dismissal time.  Some students will be dismissed from the side car line (lower driveway on Culbert Street) and some students will be dismissed from the front of the school (this car line begins at Tharrington Park entrance and travels up Spring Street, entering the bus lane at the lower end).  Staff members will call students and help them get into vehicles. 
Jones Traffic Pattern

For arrival: Cars will pull in the main entrance and stop once they have reached the end of the curb, allowing up to 6 cars to unload at once. Cars are not allowed to use the bus lot for drop-off during arrival.

For dismissal: Cars should display their student’s placard on the dash of the vehicle. Students will stand on numbers along the walkway as their vehicles approach. Cars should pull to the end of the curb or directly behind the car in front of them. This allows for 6 cars to load at once. To keep students safe: At no time should parents/caregivers park and walk to meet their child. 


3rd Grade Families: Cars will pull into the bus entrance and pull up to the end of the walkway (3rd Grade students who have siblings in 4th or 5th Grade, should follow the 4th & 5th Grade Plan outlined below). 

4th & 5th Grade Families: Cars will pull into the main entrance, turn right and follow the gravel path that leads back to the main walkway.

To help with afternoon traffic, your child will be assigned a pick up time according to their grade level. Please adhere to the schedule below. If you have a conflict with your scheduled time please contact the principal.

Student Dismissal Time Grade Level Assigned Entrance

  • 2:45 p.m. 4th Main
  • 3:00 p.m. 3rd Bus
  • 3:00 p.m. 5th Main


MAMS Traffic Pattern

For arrival: Students will be dropped off directly in front of the main entrance in a double file line in the mornings. Parents are asked to pull up to the white line.


For dismissal: In the afternoons, car riders will be picked up directly in front of the main entrance in a double line. Parents, again, are asked to pull up to the white line. School employees will be assisting students and parents at drop off and pick up.


MAHS Traffic Pattern
  • MAHS students are to be dropped off and picked up on the sidewalk that is on the school side of South Street. The traffic circle will be blocked prior to the start of school.
