The flow of traffic around Folwell can be very hectic before and after school. We do ask you to follow a few important rules.

  1. When dropping students off in the morning, you cannot park on 15th Ave and walk your child into the building. Parked cars slows down the traffic and at times can even block traffic on 6th Street.
  2. When dropping off students, we also ask that you pull down closer to the main entrance to FO. This provides a much safer environment for our crossing guard and students.
  3. Absolutely no parking is allowed on the East side of 15th Avenue when dropping off or picking up students. Students are not allowed to cross the traffic.
  4. If there is a need to come into the building when dropping off your child then you need to park behind the school or along 7th Street.

Security Buzzer

We have installed a new buzzer system, as did all the schools in Rochester.  The purpose of this system  is for the safety of our children.

Everyone in the district will now have to be buzzed into the school during school hours. You can find the buzzer for door 1 on the south side of the door. This is the only door visitors will be allowed to enter during the school day.

  • Once you are buzzed in you must report to the office.
  • Everyone visiting a school building is required by the district to sign in to the building ( wear a name tag) no matter the length of your stay.  This is for your safety.  We need to know who is in the building in case of fire or an emergency. 
  • When you are done in the building you must stop by the office to sign out.
  • This also includes VIE. Volunteers will report to the office to sign in instead of signing in outside the office in the hallway.

There may be times when an office personnel will not be immediately available to answer the buzzer request so we ask for your patience in advance. The number one priority for installing the buzzers is safety of students.
