Carpool Instructions

Sleepy Hollow School is located at the end of a narrow street. In order to ensure a smooth traffic flow and to keep the students safe, the following traffic rules have been established. It is very important that they are followed.  Please do not expect to be an exception to the rules.

 

One-Way Traffic is a Must !
In order to keep our students safe traveling to and from school, it is very important for all drivers to come to school following the direction signs. From Lombardy Lane, turn onto Tarry Lane, then Sleepy Hollow Lane, then Washington Lane to school. When leaving, turn right onto Sleepy Hollow Lane then to Lombardy Lane. Do not turn left onto Sleepy Hollow Lane from Washington Lane during the hours posted on the traffic sign located just before the stop sign at that intersection. We want to create one-way traffic flow to assist us at heavy traffic times and to insure the safety of the children who walk and ride bikes to school. All of our students' safety is based on the cooperative, patient and responsible behavior of each adult in our Sleepy Hollow community.
