MMJH Parent Pick up/Drop off MMJH Parent Pick up/Drop off 2014-10-15T13:57:49Z<div class="ExternalClassB7450C6FDA8D44FCB79C91728D898BE6"><p>​The McMeans Bobcat eNews recently sent out a friendly reminder about the safety of our students for drop-off in the morning and pick-up in the afternoon.   When picking or dropping off your students, please be vigilant when entering or leaving the property.  We have many children who walk or ride their bikes to and from school.  The sidewalks that the students are travelling on cut across the entrances and exits to the property.  We have had several near misses because of students or drivers not paying attention when traversing these areas.</p><p>Please observe all speed limits when in the school zone. If you drop off your student at the parent drop off, watch for students exiting their cars and for faculty/staff who park in the front parking area.  Also, vision in the mornings is limited and can be an obstacle entering or exiting the drop off point.  Be aware of crosswalks as our students who utilize these may be hard to see.  Cell Phone use in school zones when the lights are flashing is not permitted.  However, please be mindful of students who arrive at school before our school zone warning goes into effect.  Limit cell phone use at this time, as it could pose as a distraction while driving.  Also, please pull up fully in the AM and PM so as to keep the traffic flowing. Please continue to pull up to the furthest point possible, as this cuts down on everyone's wait time.</p><p>Please do not stop in the bend of the drive, or drop students off on Westheimer Parkway.</p><p>Please be cautious and attentive to help us keep all of our students safe.   </p><p>We thank you for your time and concern with the students of McMeans Junior High school. </p></div>

MMJH Car Safety MMJH Car Safety 2014-09-30T15:31:12Z<div class="ExternalClass2F3F9E6D11204751B3157E07371A6D7E"><p>​Safety in the front parking lot and the parent drop off and pick-up line is becoming a concern.  Please take a moment to review the following so we can keep all of our students safe.</p><p style="text-decoration:underline;"> When dropping off or picking up a student:</p><p> Please enter the front drive in the entrance using the right lane.  The left lane is designated for people parking and entering the school on school business.  You should not be using that lane for cutting ahead of other cars and then pulling into the right lane once you reach the parking lot or for parking to avoid the pick-up line.  We cannot allow a student to cross the traffic flow to enter your car.   </p><p>Follow staff directions when you are in the parking lot and pull your car up as fully up the line before having your student get in the car.  It hinders the flow of pick-up/drop-off when cars stop abruptly. Please remind your student to be on the lookout for your car and be ready to get in the car as quickly as possible.  After you have picked up or dropped off your student, please SLOWLY pull to the left to exit the parking area.  There have been several "near misses" with both people and cars, and we need to prevent this from happening again.  Please look both ways for pedestrians coming from the parked car area or the school. </p><p>Please only drop off or pick your student up once you have come up the front drive.  Several parents are dropping or picking up students while on Westheimer Parkway, by the bayou behind the school, or the nearby neighborhoods.  When coming eastbound, taking a left into the front parking lot once the school zone lights are blinking during the hours of 7-8 am and 2-3 pm is illegal.  We have also had a number of cars entering the exit only lanes on the west side of the building and driving the wrong way into the front parking lot.  By performing these actions you are endangering yourself, other drivers, and your children. </p><p> </p><p>Finally, when coming to McMeans on any school business, please park your car in a designated open spot in the front of the building.  Parking and leaving your car in the fire lane, even for just a few minutes, is a potential hazard. </p><p>All of these reminders are for the safety of all involved.  Please help us keep you, staff, and most importantly your children safe.</p><p> Thank you and have a great day!</p><p> McMeans JH Administrators</p></div>
