Folwell Elementary School continues to collaborate with Rochester Police Department, Rochester City Traffic Engineers, Olmsted Public Health, Rochester Public Schools Department of Health and Safety, Neighborhood Associations and Rochester Public Schools Transportation Department regarding our traffic plan and safe routes to school.
A recent update is that instead of queuing on 14th Avenue, heading south, that families enter the traffic pattern on 12th Avenue. Then, queue on 7th Street, heading west, towards the school. PLEASE BE MINDFUL NOT TO BLOCK DRIVEWAYS, as per request of our Folwell neighbors.
If you want to park and walk to school, you may park on 7th Street, on the east bound side of the street.
Cars on 7th street, between 12th Avenue and 15th Avenue are in the queue for "load and go" and drivers must remain in the vehicles. Students remain near the corner of 15th Avenue with adult supervision. A crossing guard is assisting at the NEWLY updated four way stop at 14th Avenue and 7th Street.
A Folwell Elementary Mantra is "Together We Will." We can do a lot of great things when we all work together - let's keep our students and families safe during dismissal!
