Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures
Our main objective is to ensure the safety of our students. Between 7:00 and 8:00 AM and between 3:00 and 3:30 PM students may not be dropped off or picked up anywhere on Breckinridge Street. This includes the metered parking lanes.The traffic flow on Breckinridge Street has changed considerably with the addition of bike lanes.
A guard will be present at the corner of Fourth and Breckinridge and a teacher will greet students between at the Breckinridge door between 7:00 and 8:00 and 3:00-3:30 each day.
Please note that Spalding University’s campus plan includes new areas for green space. We will no longer use their parking lots during the school day. However, guests may continue to park at Spalding during evening events. Students will park in the Greater Bethel Parking lot. To access this lot, students must enter Library Lane from York Street. A guard will be present to direct the girls each morning.
Drop off in the morning is generally staggered so two locations should suffice.
At 7:00 each morning and again at 3:00 in the afternoon, a Presentation security guard is on duty at the corner of Fourth and Breckinridge Streets. A staff member is stationed at the Breckinridge Street entrance and an employee is also present in our student parking lot. (There is no guard on duty at the corner of Third & Breckinridge Streets, so students must always walk to the corner of Fourth and Breckinridge to cross the street. )
We ask for your cooperation as we enforce our regulations for drop off and pick up. The girls are aware that they will receive a detention if they do not follow the correct procedure and abide by all safety regulations.
Learning how to navigate in an urban setting is one of the best lessons your daughter will learn during her four years at Presentation. However, safety is always our primary concern.
As previously mentioned, adults are strategically stationed during drop off and pick up. In addition, during the change of classes, when students cross from the Academic Building to the Arts and Athletics Center, a guard is always present to assist.
Remember, all traffic laws must be obeyed during the process of picking up or dropping off your daughter.
In the spirit of Catherine Spalding and the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Presentation Academy strives to create a diverse community that promotes academic excellence and challenges young women to develop their greatest potential as leaders in a global society.
