Traffic Volunteer Needed

Do you remember Billy Joe James, our amazing parking lot volunteer? We sure miss him, and many parents have commented about this, too! Billy Joe James was a constant figure at East Ridge for many years. He opened the school as our custodian and stayed on after retirement to volunteer for many years. You probably saw him in the parking lot directing traffic almost every day! Billy Joe has moved and we miss him. It also means we no longer have volunteer help directing traffic in the parking lot.

Here are two ways you can help:

  • Please follow the correct traffic pattern. If you enter our parking lot from Saybrook, please join the line of cars in the inner circle of the parking lot and wait your turn, rather than going straight to the drop off/pick up curb. (If there are no cars waiting in the loop, then you may proceed to the drop off/pick up curb.) Thank you! 
  • Volunteer! Would you like to help us in the parking lot? You can wear a cool vest! Stop in the office or call us to find out more!
