Beginning Monday, September 20, 2021, the parent pick-up entrance-way to Pulaski Elementary School will be closed to the public from 8:30 a.m.-2:45 p.m. on school days. There are a number of concerns about adults arriving on school property 2-3 hours early for parent pick-up and waiting in an area where students are participating in recess and outdoor PE classes. The town of Pulaski has also installed a number of NO PARKING signs along Morehead Lane after receiving complaints from residents about traffic being blocked for long periods of time in the afternoon. Parents wishing to pick up their students should plan to arrive no earlier than 2:45 for the 3:05 dismissal as that is when vehicles will be allowed into the parking lot to form the pick-up queue.
Pulaski County Public Schools is in the process of evaluating parent pick-up procedures at other schools as well and will likely implement similar practices to better ensure the safety of our students and employees. We greatly appreciate having a large percentage of parents who transport their children to and from school and want to make the process run smoothly while also keeping our campuses as safe as possible during the school day. Thank you for your assistance with this issue.
