I just received an email from the Waban Improvement Society saying that the new Angier School will no longer allow “live pick-ups” in the lane in front of the school at dismissal time. Instead parents picking up kids are asked to park on the surrounding streets and walk their kids from the school to their cars.
Do any of you traffic-heads know the background of this change in policy. It sounds like a suggestion I remember hearing during the proposed Zervas parking discussion.
“… Families who have previously picked up students in their vehicles via the lane in front of the school will be asked to park on the neighborhood streets near Angier and walk to pick up their student(s). This change will allow transportation vehicles to safely enter and exit the lanes in front of the school and will also increase the safety of all students as they leave Angier each day … “
