Parent Lot Drop Off/Pick Up

 Parent Drop Off/Pick Up Reminders:

To avoid traffic backups and ensure the safety of students there is no parking on 25th Street and no parent pick up before 3:25 on this street.  Long Lake Road may not be used for dropping off or picking up students. Please do not impede traffic by stopping on Long Lake Road to drop off students. All morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up needs to take place at Gymnasium drive.  Afternoon pick-up will begin at 3:25 once all student busing has departed.

New for 2019-2020 - 19 Buses will drop off on 25th Street.  Special transportation will be the west loop/horseshoe drive.  Student shuttle buses including 916, Spring Lake Park, ALC, Mounds View, and field trips will be at the west loop/horseshoe drive.  Bus maps will be posted throughout the building.  


Parent Drop Off/Pick Up

The west loop/horseshoe, which is located directly on the west side of the building, will be used as the main entrance for the 2019-20 school year.  The area will be used for parents to pick up and drop off their student(s). A change for this year due to construction is that parents can drop off in the west loop.  After 3:25 p.m., parents can pick up in the west loop.  Times will be enforced.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Irondale will continue to offer an activity bus option, leaving the west loop/horseshoe drive at 4:30 p.m. on Monday-Thursday. 

Fencing will be installed prior to the first day of school to assist directing pedestrian and traffic safely.  

Safety tips for motorists

  •       Stop for crossing pedestrians—even when they are in the wrong or crossing mid-block
  •       Watch for pedestrians at all times—never drive around a vehicle stopped for pedestrians

Safety tips for pedestrians

  •       Cross using the crosswalks—don’t cross mid-block
  •       Look before you cross—make eye contact with drivers
  •       Remove headphones and stay off cell phone while crossing

Crosswalk Laws

  •       Drivers must stop
  •       Pedestrians must NOT enter a crosswalk if the approaching vehicle cannot stop
  •       Failure to obey the law is a misdemeanor

Construction workers and students will share the south parking lot.  Additional student parking will be in the northeast lot via parking permit only.  Lot signage will match the parking permit hang tag. To avoid fines, it will be important to park in your designated area.  Construction zones are indicated throughout campus. NO PARKING IN CONSTRUCTION ZONES!

Vehicle traffic around and on campus will be high due to construction worker personal vehicles and equipment.  USE CAUTION AT ALL TIMES!

Thanks to support from voters, the improvements to our school will make Irondale High School a place to better serve students, families, and the community.
