Morning Drop Off and Afternoon Pick Up Procedures at Avon High School: Parents and guardians are reminded that all students should be dropped off in the back of the school adjacent to the library before, during and after school. This inculdes our student-athletes. We continue to have parents and guardians dropping off students in the front circle and near the gym each morning.This practice interrupts the flow of traffic around the buiding and has at times created an unsafe environment in the parking lots. Parents and guardians picking up students engaged in an after-school activity are asked to park in an appropriate lined parking space while waiting. The bus circle, fire lanes (other than outside the library), and handicap labeled spaced are not to be used as parking spaces as drop off locations at anytime. Thank you for your help abiding by these procedures. It is our hope that your adherence to these measures will maintain a safe and efficient process for picking up and dropping off students at Avon High School. Thank you.

Students are reminded that they are NOT allowed to park in front of the building or in the visitor parking area after school hours. You may only park in back of the school or by the new gym area. Thank you. 

Students must park in assigned parking spots only. No parking on grassy areas.
