Car Pool Changes

Hello East Side families,

During the 2017-2018 school year the DOT (Department of Transportation), Cobb County, and East Side worked together to complete a study on the traffic patterns during East Side's morning and afternoon carpool. This was based off concerns of back up created along Indian Hills Parkway and Roswell Road. Using the results of the study, DOT & Cobb County worked together to develop a change in carpool procedures to increase the number of cars in the queuing system. This change implements a double lane stacking of cars once you are inside the East Side carpool line. Cars will then merge back into one lane right before the student loading/unloading location to ensure student safety.

This change will go into effect the Monday following Fall Break, October 1, 2018. Please closely review the two attached documents for more information. For questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to East Side Administration or to the DOT using the number found on the attachment.

We appreciate your understanding and ask that you be patient, as we all learn this new queuing system.

Thank you as always for your support of East Side Elementary!
