Please be aware of the traffic patterns around our building. The only entrance into the school for parents and students is now the Buzzer entrance on Prospect, at the Flagpole.
Maryland Avenue is reserved for busses; there is no parking on Maryland Avenue during drop-off and pickup times.
Morning Drop Off
Parents/guardians should be using the “DROP ZONE” in the parking lot. The entrance to the parking lot is at the far north end; from there you will travel back toward school where a MAM staff member will meet your vehicle and assist your child(ren) in exiting the vehicle and making their way into school.
When approaching the school on Prospect before the Prospect / Maryland split, there are three lanes of traffic.
- The left lane is for a left turn onto Maryland Avenue only.
- The middle lane is for left turn onto Maryland or straight on Prospect.
- The right lane goes straight onto Prospect only.
The middle and right lanes become the two traveling lanes on Prospect. The “curb / parking lane” on Prospect in front of the school is not a direct traffic lane heading north on Prospect. PLEASE do not double-park on Prospect Avenue – -use the procedure below for dropping off children. Thanks for your awareness and efforts to keep arrival and dismissal safe for the families of Maryland Avenue Montessori School.
