Traffic Guidelines

Access to the campus will be limited after morning drop-off. Between the hours of 9:00am–2:30pm (M,T,H,F) and 9:00am–1:00pm (W), cars may enter only via the secure gate at the East end of campus. Folks may access the walking gates located at the lower lot and at the back fence by “buzzing” in.

It is so important that we model good and safe behavior for our children. Our neighbors are asked to be tolerant of our pick-up and drop-off lines and we, in turn, try to make these periods as smooth as possible.

In addition to getting drivers through car line as efficiently as possible, safety is our top priority. To this end, we would like to remind you to be both patient and polite when driving to and on campus. Please be mindful of your speed (the speed limit is 25mph or less in the neighborhood and 10mph on campus), obey the officer directing traffic, avoid cell phone use, and watch for students crossing the driveway.

Do not park on or queue on Cathedral Avenue to wait for your child at drop-off and pick-up times. This creates a significant risk to the child, impedes the flow of rush hour traffic, and is in violation of our neighbor agreement. All pedestrians must cross Cathedral Avenue and Woodley Road only at designated crosswalks.

If you have any questions, please call the Main Office at 202-939-8848.

Our neighbors are well aware of these guidelines and have been asked to contact us if there are any infractions. If we learn that these guidelines are not followed either the Head of School or Assistant Head of School for Finance & Operations will contact the appropriate parents. We do expect our families to respect the neighborhood, to drive and park carefully, and to obey all traffic and parking laws.
