Student Drop Off at CMS
SCHOOL SIDE, CURB SIDE MORNING STUDENT DROP-OFFOver 650 students arrive at Camden Middle School each day either by bus, vehicle, or by walking to school. This can create a very confusing, busy and chaotic traffic pattern in front of the school. In order to alleviate some of the confusion and to ensure student safety we have designated two student drop-off locations and entrance doors.
Door B will be the designated entrance for students being dropped off on Union Street. Union Street will be a ONE-WAY street during drop-off time.
Door C will be the designated entrance for students being dropped off on third street. Third street is typically less busy and an easier drop off location.
If you are traveling from:
• Route 69 West (Rome side of town) please turn right onto Union Street and drop-off in front of school on the school-side of Union Street. Please be sure to pull all the way up at the curb so that we can fit as many cars as possible in. Students will enter through Door B.
• 4th Street, please turn left onto Union Street and drop-off on the school-side of the street. Students will enter through Door B.
• 3rd Street (Sylvan Beach side and Westdale side), please drop off on 3rd street. Students will enter through Door C.
• 2nd Street (Sylvan Beach side and Westdale side), please turn right onto Union Street and left onto 3rd Street and drop-off at Door C.
We respectfully ask everyone to follow these drop-off procedures. Failure to do so creates chaos, frustration and unsafe conditions for our students as well as the drivers dropping off.
