Fall 2022 Gloversville Middle/High School Traffic Protocols
The following traffic protocols have been created to assist parents/guardians navigate the new traffic pattern and designated drop off/pick up areas on the Gloversville High School/Middle School campus. The new designs are intended to provide safe curbside locations for our students to exit and enter vehicles.
When driving up Lincoln Street from the city with only HS student(s) to drop off with intent to return to city of Gloversville;
Use the first entrance to the high school student parking lot (east side of HS), and then make an immediate right into the HS student drop off loop. Stay in the loop all the way until it turns to the left by the HS building. (Drop off students here) To exit the lot, drive back east (follow arrows) and return to Lincoln St. Turn right and exit campus down Lincoln St. back into the city of Gloversville.
Note: Construction on the student lot/drop off loop is not yet complete, so there is a fence separating the unfinished portion from the temporary drop off loop. *** Although not complete, this is still the best/safest/quickest option for dropping off HS students if coming from, and returning to, the city via Lincoln St.
When driving up Lincoln Street from the city with HS student(s) and MS student(s) to drop off;
Follow the same directions as above, except when returning to Lincoln Street from HS student drop off, turn left and continue west on Lincoln Street past the front of the high school and follow signs to the west side of Gloversville Middle School to drop off middle school student(s). If planning to return to Gloversville via Lincoln St, drivers should head back the way they came on Lincoln St. and keep left around the front of the HS to avoid congestion. Exit campus back into the city via Lincoln St. (east)
Note: To avoid congestion, exiting campus via Lincoln Street (west) to Rt 29A or, using Spring Street to exit campus may be better options, than returning to Lincoln St. (east).
