New Strategies for Elementary School Afternoon Pickup
Lockwood School is trying something new to help with the congestion in the intermediate (Hwy 87) parking lot. This approach has worked well and cuts pickup time almost in half.  

  • When picking up your child, if you don’t see them right away, please continue driving through the parking lot and circle around to the back of the line. This may require a couple of loops, but pickup duty will be much quicker and you’ll have more of your valuable time back.

  • Alternatively, we also have plenty of parking spaces in the junior high parking lot. This parking lot is just behind the main building and is very accessible to primary, intermediate and junior high students. If you prefer to keep your vehicle in one spot, this would be a great place for pick-up arrangements.

  • Lockwood Schools is working on alternative parking lot plans for next year and into the future beyond that.
  • Please be courteous and patient and try to keep moving forward.
  • Plan ahead to make sure your child knows where and when you will be there.  
  • The biggest congestion time is right at 2:55-3:05 on most days.  On Wednesday the time is from 1:45-2:10. Please consider picking your child up after that time.  

Thank you for your patience.
