New Traffic Flow for Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up
Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up

We have IMPORTANT, NEW information about dropping off and picking up your student from Powderhorn for the 18-19 school year. Jeffco Public Schools Risk Management reviewed our parking lot traffic flow this summer and recommended changes be made in the interest of safety for all our community members.

Starting on August 16th, Powderhorn will have a new traffic flow for dropping off students from 8:25-8:40am and picking up from 3:00-3:30pm in the main parking lot of the school. Please do not leave students unattended prior to 8:30am as there will not be adult supervision until this time. It is important to follow these traffic patterns to ensure the safety of all students.

Powderhorn will continue to encourage the drop off of K-2 students in the main school parking lot and 3-6 Students through the “Hug and Go” lane near Summit Middle School and the Baseball Field.
Between 8:25-8:40am and 3:00-3:30pm the following traffic rules will be in place in the Primary Powderhorn Parking Lot:

  • The “Hug and Go” lane will no longer be a dual lane drop off. Cars will stay in the single lane (yellow line) closest to the school which runs past the painted walkway at the front entrance of the school all the way to the no parking sign just before the red painted curb nearest the exit to Coal Mine Ave. Please be sure to pull your car up as far you can to help move cars through the drop off and pick up line.
  • Parking will not be permitted in the left side“Hug and Go” lane that has been removed located closest to the parking lot.
  • The only painted walkway to and from the school is the one located at entrance to the main door. This walkway must be utilized when walking into the building from the parking lot.
  • The parking lots will be attended from 8:30-8:40 each morning and from 3:15-3:25 each afternoon. We ask that students not be left unattended prior to 8:30am as supervision does not begin until 8:30am.

Powderhorn staff will be outside to assist with this transition as we begin the school year. Please see the attached maps of the traffic flow for pick up and drop up for further clarification.
