Please be aware that parking in front of the school in the morning and in the afternoon is problematic. There is not enough space for everybody and this frequently leads to dangerous situations or even real accidents. Parking is therefore a concern for all of us that we have to take seriously.
We would therefore like to alert you to our “Kiss and Go” parking procedures. We kindly invite you to drive onto the school grounds between 07:00 and 08:30 in the morning. Here you can safely drop off your child and then drive out onto the street again. Many parents find this drop-off zone a convenient service and we hope it can be of use to you, as well.
Two thirds of the area directly on Könneritzstraße directly in front of the school is a drop-off zone. The area is marked by two official “short stops only” traffic signs which indicate that no parking is allowed during the indicated times – morning and afternoon! Drivers may make short stops in this area and may get out of their car in order to help children safely onto the sidewalk. However, drivers are expected to remain with their car. If you wish to bring your child into the building, please find parking in a neighbouring street and walk. This is generally easily possible with a walk of two blocks.
No car should be parked on the side-walk; it endangers pedestrians and especially small children not always visible to the driver when manoeuvring on and off the side-walk. Keep in mind that children do not expect to watch out for cars where those are not supposed to be. They believe rightfully that the sidewalk is a safe place to be! So please help us keep the children safe!
