Dear Sugar Land Academy Parents/Guardians,

 

It has come to our attention that there are many cars, during Drop Off especially, making the U-turn near the neighborhood behind the school. This practice is clearly unsafe, and I strongly urge all parents to refrain from getting into this habit. There is also a “No U-turn” sign (for dismissal hours) that is posted at the median to remind all drivers a U-turn during dismissal time is not permissible. However, most parents have encountered the same challenge at drop off as well, therefore we urge you to NOT make a U-turn during drop off at that median for your safety and that of your student along with other drivers and parents on Eldridge. Because many parents are making U-turns at this median during drop off each morning a few accidents have already occurred, and I am requesting each and everyone of you to PLEASE honor my request. Unfortunately, I do not have jurisdiction over the city streets and cannot control traffic or assign a staff/security officer outside of school property. However, I will reach out to the Sugar Land Police Chief and request Sugar Land police to patrol the area. For this reason, I urge all parents and guardians to travel to the stoplight where it is permissible to perform a U-turn safely.

Thank you for your cooperation and support with this request.

 

Sincerely,

 

Afreen Merchant,

Principal – Harmony Science Academy Sugar Land
