Student Drop-Off and Pickup
BFA is committed to managing traffic and parking in a safe and effective manner for the benefit of its students and the community. Thus, BFA has prepared a Traffic and Parking Management Plan and Procedures. Click here to view these procedures.
As a matter of school policy, no electronic devices of any kind, including Bluetooth or other hands-free devices, may be used by drivers in the areas designated in BFA’s Traffic and Parking Management Plan and Procedures. Further, to ensure the safety of all, a vehicle may not exceed 10 mph on school property at any time for any reason.
BFA will have two designated loading zones for kindergarten through eighth grade student use during pickup at the dismissal of school. BFA also will maintain a separate area designated for pre-kindergarten loading and unloading. Traffic Carpool Map.
Volunteer for Carpool
To ensure the safety of its students, BFA will have an adequate number of carpool attendants onsite. BFA requests that families volunteer to assist with drop-off and pickup. Please arrive by 7:30 a.m. for morning carpool or 2:55 p.m. for afternoon carpool. You can log your hours via HelpCounter.
There is ample parking on BFA’s lower and upper lots. On occasion, parents special event parking instructions may be sent out via the Principal Newsletter. Please pay special attention to these instructions.
Please do not park in BFA’s Reserved Spots
We’ve noticed that some parents have been parking in reserved spots. Please be respectful of the parents, teachers and administration that paid for or earned those spots with their hard work and refrain from parking in any of the reserved slots.
