Guidelines:

In an effort to maximize the safety of Uintah students and minimize dangerous traffic congestion, Uintah Elementary School encourages the following drop-off and pick-up procedures.  We ask all parents to adhere to the following rules for both morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up:

between 7am and 7pm

  • No stopping on the crosswalk at any time
  • All vehicles must exit Uintah parking lot and circle, with the flow of traffic, out

the west side of the driveway

  • All vehicles entering the circle are to form two lanes as they move through
  • Exercise caution and courtesy toward other drivers and Operation Safe Passage volunteers

Procedures:

The Uintah administration currently encourages the following four procedures to help you get your children onto the school grounds safely:

1.         Walk to school with your children or encourage them to walk with friends

2.          Carpool with other families as often as possible

3.          Drop-off and pick-up outside the Uintah circle at one of the following points, in order to   avoid traffic congestion and dangerous street crossings:

  • Mayfair Circle (1615 E)*

  • Westbound 1300 S*
  • Northbound corner of Laird Ave. & 1500 E*

  • Southbound 1500 E (north side of 1500 E & 1300 S intersection)

 * These drop-off points do not require your child to cross any major street to get to Uintah

4.         Drop-off and pick-up inside the Uintah circle:

  • All vehicles should enter circle through east driveway and form two lanes as they move through the circle
  • No vehicles may park and/or stand along the curbs in the Uintah circle
  • Children must exit and enter vehicles only on curb side of car, for example

              a.  Vehicles with right side passenger doors only must use right lane
