This message is just a friendly reminder for everyone who picks their children up from Southgate to please be courteous of the people who live close to the school. There have been some concerns expressed by our neighbors, of parents turning up Holm Road and driving by the school, pulling into people's driveways and backing out in order to get back to the 4 way stop without waiting in the long line at Alder and Holm. Please take time to wait in line on Alder, or travel the extra distance to circle the block via Milford and Goodwin, or up Penfield to Bowen Drive. This makes sure everyone is safe as they are leaving the school. Also, it is important to not drop off or pick up students at the front of the school where the bus loop is. We had an incident today where a driver interfered with the safe operation of one of the district busses as it came to offload students for the school day. The lower parking lot is the designated place for student drop off and pick up at the book ends of the day.
