Observe Traffic Signs When Driving on CLSD Roadways

Transporting students to and from school is a necessary part of a sound educational program in a district such as ours. Perhaps no other area demands more responsibility for student welfare than the transportation of students on public highways, streets, and roads.

Part of the safety surrounding transportation of students involves the cooperation of those who transport students to and from school in private vehicles. Drivers should be aware of and abide by signs that are clearly posted in areas where school buses and school vans discharge and load students. These signs indicate times when only buses or vans are permitted in the drop-off and pick-up areas. It is imperative for the welfare of our students who use either a school bus or a school van to be able to exit and enter these vehicles safely.

On behalf of the students who ride our school buses and school vans, we want to thank those who drive students to any of the district’s buildings for acknowledging the posted areas restricting personal vehicles. Your continued cooperation will ensure the safety and welfare of all of our students as they are transported both to and from school.

Pick-Up and Drop-Off Locations

Each building has requirements for areas that are to be used for parents to pick up and/or drop off students. Please be sure to know and follow your student’s building rules for pick up and drop off, listed below.

Cedar Crest High School

Morning Drop-Off:

  • School Buses drop-off at Door A
  • Student drop-off is at door E (“Alumni Gym” entrance across from the stadium)
  • Both Door A and Door E will open no earlier than 7:15 a.m.

Parents and guardians are asked to follow the route on this map and described below when dropping off your student(s).  

  1. Entering CCHS campus from Evergreen Road: Please use Falcon Drive and enter the second entrance of Parking lot E.  This will allow you to proceed directly to the fire lane in front of Gym A (New Gym), Gym B (Old Gym), and LGI.  When you enter the fire lane, please drop your student(s) off quickly.  Once your student(s) has been dropped off, you can then proceed to exit the campus either by Evergreen Road or State Drive exits.
  2. Entering CCHS campus from State Drive: Please use Falcon Drive and as you turn left in front of the stadium, you will use the first entrance of Parking lot E.  This will allow you to proceed directly to the fire lane in front of Gym A (New Gym), Gym B (Old Gym), and LGI.  When you enter the fire lane, please drop your student(s) off quickly.  Once your student(s) has been dropped off, you can then proceed to exit the campus either by Evergreen Road or State Drive exits.
  3. Do not park in the fire lane but simply drop your student(s) off so we can keep the line moving.
  4. All students dropped off will enter through Door E, which is located near Gym B (Old Gym) and the LGI.
  5.  Please DO NOT drive through Parking lot E.  This parking lot is for our senior driving students only, and we need to protect them as they exit their vehicle and use the crosswalks to also enter at Door E.

 A NOTE for Juniors who drive:

Junior Students will park in Upper Parking lot, Lot D and shall use the walking path next to the field house.  Students shall then walk across Falcon Drive using the crosswalk.  Students shall continue to the walking path next to the loading dock and walk to the sidewalk outside of the high school.  Students shall then enter the building through Door E.

End of Day Pick-Up:

  • Students can be picked up at either Door C (Auditorium) or Door E (“Alumni Gym”)
  • After students are dismissed at 2:30 p.m., students must exit the building or possess an after-school pass from a teacher to remain in the building, If a student is staying for an athletic practice or detention, tutoring with a teacher, or completing research in the library, a pass from the appropriate teacher or grade-level principal must be in their possession. Due to security reasons, the policy will be strictly enforced and students who are found loitering will be considered trespassing and receive consequences.

A Note from the Borough:

ATTENTION ANYONE PICKING UP CHILDREN AT CORNWALL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Burd Coleman Road and Alden Street need to be clear of stopped traffic so emergency traffic and other vehicles do not have to travel in the opposite lane of travel creating a hazardous condition. To facilitate an efficient flow, it is recommended that anyone picking up children arrive promptly at the dismissal time of 3:18 p.m. If you choose to arrive early, you should wait in the bus garage parking lot across the street. At dismissal time, exit the lot to the right, turn left on to Alden Street, and then left on Burd Coleman. The Cornwall Borough Police Department will enforce the Pa Vehicle Code as it relates to stopping, standing, and parking on a public highway as necessary because of the limited sight distance. There should be no stopped standing unless it is during the free flow of pickup. The Cornwall Borough Police Department wants to keep everyone safe in that area during school dismissal time and appreciates your cooperation as the new school year gets started.
