As part of our quest to continuously review processes and identify potential improvement opportunities related to increased security of our students, faculty and staff, NHP is doing the following:
Installed additional barriers in areas on campus, soccer fields and bonus lots to both guide and deter drivers on proper traffic flow through carline each morning and afternoon.
1. Actively soliciting parent volunteers for both morning and afternoon carline duty;
2. Actively reviewing faculty carline duty roster/assignments for both morning and afternoon carline for improvements;
3. Potentially asking for parent funds to assist the school in obtaining the needed dollars to support additional Irving Police Officer presence on our campus during high traffic times;
4. Reviewing whether to close off the bonus lot to NHP traffic to ensure safety concerns and/or potential liabilities and
5. Considering banning any driver who does not follow the traffic pattern and safety procedures from being on campus.
PARENT HELP NEEDED:
1. PLEASE SLOW DOWN; the 2 or 3 minutes you save when not following rules/signage etc... is not worth risking the safety of our children.
2. Be respectful of each other, our students, staff and faculty when driving through the campus and/or on the back bonus/gravel lot.
3. Please note that the soccer fields are not a racing track and also should not be used as a parking spot to drop off and/or pick up students.
4. If you utilize the bonus/gravel lot (next to the equestrian center) to either drop off or pick up your children; please again slow down, follow the "one way, one way out flow" of the traffic and be respectful and safe. The car line in this lot is NOT a parking spot, which means traffic flow should continue through without blocking others. However, you may park in the lot in an orderly manner and wait for your child and then leave following the normal traffic flow.
Report any/all errant driving behaviors, including license plate numbers to campus directors. We have an arrangement with the Irving Police Department to identify these driving challenges and will follow-up with drivers with support from the Irving police officers.
