Parking and Drop Off

With the snow, drop off and parking has become a greater concern. In order to maintain a safe environment for the students, I would like to remind you of the parking rules at Travell School.

I understand that this might result in an inconvenience for adults,

but the greater issue is one of student safety.

General Rules for Bogert Avenue:

  • During school hours Bogert Avenue is ONE-WAY. Please use the drop-off section on the right side (school side) of Bogert right in front of the school beyond the island for QUICK stops to discharge students. There is no parking on the school side of Bogert in the morning. It is the drop off waiting line.
  •  Students should be seated on the CURB side of the car. They should be able to unbuckle their seat belt and exit the car on their own. Drivers are not to leave the driver’s seat. Once your child has exited the car, please continue on towards Meadowbrook. Teachers are posted at each door ensure that your child gets safely inside the building.
  • Do not drop off children at the island. Doing so requires students to walk in front of the school bus and backs up traffic onto Glen Avenue.
  • If you need to escort your child into school, please leave the drop-off area and park beyond the school or on the left side of Bogert.
  • The school’s circular driveway must be clear at all times for bus loading and unloading.

    General Rules for Fairfield Avenue:

  • Please use the cut out to drop off students. Pull up as far as you can to maximize the number of cars that can drop off at one time.
  • Students should be seated on the CURB side of the car. They should be able to unbuckle their seat belt and exit the car on their own. Drivers are not to leave the driver’s seat.
  • DO NOT double park at any time. It is extremely dangerous for children to walk between parked cars.
  • Fairfield is two way at all times and parking is illegal on BOTH sides of Fairfield north of Downs. Stopping or standing is prohibited on the west side of Fairfield and may NOT be used as a drop off.

Suggestions:

  • The Ridgewood elementary schools were designed as neighborhood schools so that children could walk to school. Whenever possible, please have your children walk to and from school with neighborhood friends.
  • Carpool whenever possible.
  • It may be helpful to park elsewhere and have your child walk to an agreed up on meeting location. Meadowbrook is an ideal place.


These provisions are designed to ensure the safety of all students. Adults need to model safe and responsible behavior. Please take time to teach your children about automobile safety. Thank you for your cooperation on this important matter.
