Jefferson-Houston elementary is undergoing some changes this year and therefore so is the kiss & ride parking at the school. This school year look for Kiss & Ride parking in front of Jefferson-Houston (North side of Cameron St from West St to the Durant Center) from 7:30-8:30 am and in the afternoon, Kiss & Ride hours will be from 2:30-4:15pm. During the new Kiss & Ride hours, Jefferson-Houston staff will be directing traffic to minimize back-ups on Cameron St.
The reason for this advisory is that, for safety reasons and site constraints, only buses will be allowed on to the Jefferson-Houston site during drop-off and pick-up. Personal cars will not be allowed to drop off or pick up students behind the school. This restriction will increase the number of parent drop-offs and pick-ups on Cameron St.
