A crossing guard assist students crossing Fischer Hallman at Seabrook Drive. Closer to the school, there are several cut-throughs and trails that create additional access to the school. Traffic circles and roundabouts in the area are configured such that pedestrians can concentrate on one lane of traffic at a time.
School traffic infrastructure includes a bus layby on Seabrook Drive for long buses, and a small bus bay off of Amand Drive for small buses. There several sturdy and secure bike racks and three accessible parking spots for people with permits. Parents are asked to use adjacent streets if they must drive, including Amand Drive where a cutout is available for parking; it is advised that you accompany your children across this street to ensure they use the safe crossing infrastructure at the roundabout at Seabrook Drive.
