Due to safety concerns and the deterioration of a section of paving, the plans sent out yesterday
for drop off and pick up have been changed. After re-evaluating the situation, the City of
Edmond informed us that the intersection of Danforth and Thomas going north is now closed
until further notice. We regret the inconvenience this last minute change causes and greatly
appreciate your patience as we continue to evaluate the safest way for students and staff to
access the building.
To assist with traffic flow, additional school staff and district personnel will be on site in the
coming days during drop off and pick up times.
Please plan accordingly and give yourself plenty of time to get to school on time.
Thomas Road Access
To enter the school via Thomas, you must now go south from Covell and turn right by the
fieldhouse. As you travel south, look for school staff in orange vests who will help direct you to
the West Lot.
2nd Hour Drop Off
Students being dropped off after 8am will need to use the front entrance (Danforth) or the bus
loop for drop off.
All traffic entering campus after 8am must enter and exit from Fretz.
– Seniors leaving for lunch must exit and return to campus from Fretz
– All traffic entering campus after 8am must come in off Fretz or in the front of the school
– Student parking paths are noted by red arrows on the map
– Please plan to leave early and allow plenty of extra time during this process
Seniors will be allowed to park in student parking near the Siberian gym, baseball field, football
stadium and available student spaces in front of the Freshman Academy. Senior parking will
overflow into the East Lot.
Seniors may enter off of Fretz to park by the Siberian Gym and in the baseball lots. Seniors
planning to park in the East Lot must enter from Thomas, traveling south from Covell. Seniors
leaving for lunch must exit and return to campus from Fretz.
Juniors need to park in the East Lot.
Please remember that this information is being shared as it becomes available and plans are
always subject to change due to construction needs. We will communicate any changes as
soon as we are made aware.
My student is a junior and they are on the waiting list. When will they get to park on
The new parking lot is slated to open sometime after Labor Day. When this lot opens, juniors
who are on the waiting list will be able to purchase a parking sticker and park on campus.
When will my sophomore student be able to park?
Once all junior students on the waiting list are given the opportunity to purchase parking,
parking passes will open up to sophomore students.
Where does my junior/sophomore student park until they can park on campus?
Students were given free stickers to park at Revive Church – this lot is now full. Students may
also use the Hobby Lobby parking lot until November. We are NOT allowed to use the Hobby
Lobby lot once the holiday season arrives. Students are encouraged to carpool.
How does my student get off campus if they need to check out during the day?
Students will exit the campus from Fretz at all times. Between the hours of 8am and 2pm
students will enter and exit campus from Fretz.
My student is parking in the East Lot, how do they enter the building?
Students should enter the building from the Freshman Academy or the breezeway in between
the Freshman Academy and the main building.
When will Thomas Road be completed?
The City of Edmond has projected this project to last 120 days from its start date in July. We are
hopeful that the project will be completed sometime in November, however weather delays
could change the completion date.
