Dear Bellaire High School Parents and Community,
I hope this communication finds you well. On Monday, November 21st, the offices and classrooms located at the front of the school will be open for business (Yay!!!). We will be moving into them over the Thanksgiving week break. As a result, starting on Monday, November 21st, there will be some adjustments made to the entry and exit locations for our students. These are outlined on the map attached to this email.
Student Entry and Exit
There will be three entry and exit doors for students.
- Main Office at the front of the school on S. Rice Ave.
- “Main Street” doors. These are located in the center of the school area known as “Main Street,” and they are the doors students would use if they are entering from the parking garage.
- Bus entry doors. These are the same doors that bus riders have been using.
NOTE: Students walking to school or being dropped off should no longer use the bus entry doors. They should use the doors at the Main Office or on “Main Street”.
Students will no longer enter nor exit through the doors on the back bus lane and loading dock lane.
Drop-Offs and Pick-Ups
The student drop off and pick up lanes are on S. Rice Ave. at the front of the school and Maple St. by the parking garage, just like before. For safety reasons, students are not to walk onto the bus lane starting on Monday, November 21st. They should use the doors at the Main Office or on “Main Street” only.
Only school buses should enter the bus lane, which is a one-way road that enters on Maple St.
All visitors will park in the outside parking lot at the front of the school on S. Rice Ave. In order to alleviate traffic issues, visitor parking lot hours are 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. All visitors must enter the building through the new main office doors on S. Rice.
This is going to take a team effort by everyone in order to make the changes as smooth as possible. It’s nothing too major, but there are some tweaks nonetheless so thank you in advance to everyone for their part in making traffic and student entry and dismissal as smooth as possible.
