In the morning, students will have the opportunity to either eat breakfast in the cafeteria or play on the playground before school. School staff will open the gates and supervision will begin at 7:10 a.m.
Our carpool line will start moving at 7:10 am. Please do not enter the carpool line until you are directed to do so, as we do have one school bus that will access the front drive of the school.
To access the carpool lane, families must come up Burris street from the east and turn right into the Abrams parking lot. There are no left turns allowed into the parking lot between 7 am and 7:30 am.
Please do not park in the front parking lot at Abrams and wait to drop students off.
- Students may be dropped off from vehicles ONLY at the front of the school building, at the lane directly in front of the school.
- Parents who wish to stop their vehicles and walk students to their classrooms must park in the lot at the rear of the school
- Students may cross Chiles Ave ONLY at the crosswalk, staffed by Fort Carson soldiers.
- Students may cross Wetzel ONLY at the crosswalk, staffed by Fort Carson soldiers.
- Students may access the back playground through the gates off of the bus parking.
We are asking that if at all possible, families consider accessing Abrams from the back of the school, either using O’Connell from the south side of Abrams or Hare Ave from the north side of Abrams.
When coming through the carpool line, please do NOT drop students off in front of the kindergarten playground. Please pull all the way forward and drop students off in front of the school. This helps us to keep the carpool line moving and get cars off of the surrounding streets.
If you need to get out of the car to assist your child, please park in the lot behind the school off of Wetzel Avenue and walk with your child to their building access door. Please do not get out of your vehicle in front of the school as it holds up the line.
Please do not allow students to exit your vehicle at the bus loading zones at the rear of the school. All students being dropped off by car must be dropped off at the front of the school for safety.
Please do not park in the front carpool lane when picking students up.
Parents picking up students at dismissal time should park in the lot at the rear of the school and proceed to either the kindergarten blacktop (Kindergarten students only) or the basketball court. Students must present their dismissal card to the teachers on duty before leaving for the day.
The primary method to notify all district employees, parents, and students of school closing is through our mass notification system in Blackboard, which will come via text, email, and phone. We will also post a pop-up message on the homepage of our website for visitors accessing information here, as well as push a notice through FFC8 Twitter and Facebook.
