Dear CCS Families,
This is a reminder regarding carpool procedures as stated in the Parent/Student handbook. PLEASE, families coming from Mt. Pleasant or I-26 do not approach the school from Meeting Street to Huger with the intention of turning LEFT onto Benson Street. This is causing traffic issues and is a matter of safety.
The correct flow of carpool is the following…
CARPOOL – DROP OFF – PICK UP
All students must be dropped off or picked up from Benson Street. We ask that you use KING STREET, RIGHT ON HUGER STREET, RIGHT ON BENSON STREET so that your child will have safe access to the sidewalk. Please have name card placed on front dash of the passenger side of your vehicle.
Families coming from Mt. Pleasant should exit East Bay Street or Meeting Street. Right on Columbus or Line Street, Right on King Street, Right on Huger Street, Right on Benson Street. Or take the 17 to the Crosstown, take the King Street Exit, turn left onto King Street and then right on Huger Street and right on Benson Street.
Please do NOT attempt to turn left onto Benson Street from Huger Street.
PLEASE DO NOT DOUBLE PARK to walk your student into the building or to take care of business in the office. At all times, avoid parking in spaces marked for Sacred Heart Church personnel beside the rectory. Also, refrain from blocking the priest’s driveway and the parking spaces for church personnel.
Teachers are on duty during morning drop-off (7:30 – 8:00) and afternoon pick-up (3:00 – 3:15) to provide for the safety of students entering or leaving the campus and to maintain the safe flow of traffic.
Students SHOULD NOT EXIT vehicles on Huger, Congress or King Streets since the safety of the children cannot be provided on these three streets. Students should not get in or out of a vehicle unless directed to do so by a teacher on duty.
Vehicles are prohibited from parking on the playground area during school hours (7:30 am – 6:00 PM). Students not picked up by 3:15 pm will be sent to the Aftercare Program for supervision purposes, and parents will be charged the published fees for use of this program.
Parents are asked to remain in their cars and to proceed through the regular carpool process. Please do not park and walk up to the school to drop off or pick up students.
In addition, if you need to speak to a teacher on the carpool line, please make arrangements to talk to them at a different time. This will help carpool run in a timely manner.
Thank you for your cooperation,
