Quick Drop-off on Ohio Avenue

The Fairburn Carline is a coned traffic lane running West on Ohio Avenue from Fairburn Avenue to the school entrance. It operates from 7:40 a.m. until school begins at 8 a.m. The Carline is operated by volunteer parents and is intended to be a high-speed drop off lane in which a child-laden vehicle pulls up to orange vested attendants who will hold the door and assist the child to exit the car safely and see that he/she enters the school gate. When a car comes to a stop, students should be prepared to unload with lunch and school bags at the ready. If it is raining the carline does not operate and students must be walked to one of the school entrances.

Please note that it is illegal for parents to cross Ohio Avenue outside of crosswalks with children or worse, allow your child to cross Ohio alone. Either offense can result in a $300 ticket. If you are parking and walking your child to school, please park near the intersection of Ohio and Fairburn, or Ohio and Westholme, and walk your child in the crosswalk, which is both safe and legal.

If you have any questions, contact Nina Beral at (310) 308-4860 or Brian Simon at (424) 832-7686.

Do's & Don'ts

Do arrive early. As 8 o’clock approaches, the Carline grows increasingly congested. The school entrance gate is closed after the second bell rings, at which time any arriving students must go to the school office for late admission.

Do have all lunch bags, school bags, school projects, etc. ready and available for unloading when the student exits the vehicle.

Do say your goodbyes prior to coming to a full stop in the Carline.

Do immediately drive away after your child is safely out of the vehicle. The attendants will see that children exiting vehicles are funneled to the gate and safely enter the school.

Don't drop your child before reaching an orange vested attendant.

Do be mindful of other traffic on Ohio as you pull away from the Carline.

Don't stop next to the Carline (double park) in the middle of Ohio to unload children or park on the south side of Ohio and have your children walk across the street to the school.

Do try to position baby seats and car seats so that school age children are able to exit the vehicle on the curb side of the vehicle.
