Lake Forest College has asked us to reconfigure our pick-up routine. We’ve been informed that Maplewood Road (South Campus Drive) is an active roadway and shouldn’t be used for parking, waiting, idling, picking up, etc.. We explained that it is a 10 minute problem twice a week for 10 weeks. The college is still asking that we setup a different pick-up routine.
We, including myself, must be very thankful, appreciative, and cooperative when dealing with our host, Lake Forest College. We are very fortunate to have field availability on very good fields at times that work for our players and coaches. An additional bonus is that we are sometimes able to use their indoor facilities in case of thunder or lightning. The downside is PARKING….. there is minimal parking at Lake Forest College.
In an attempt to tweak our PICK-UP Routine, here are our new PICK-UP instructions:
We know that this is impractical; However, 1.) The college would prefer that you park in the big athletic lot and walk over to the fields to pick-up your child. If there is no parking in the athletic lot, please park in the lots to the west of the Athletic lot (behind Buchanan Hall or behind Public Safety), 2.) If that fails or does not work for you then we will have the group ready for pick-up at the following times at the Sports Center.
3rd/4th grade practice times NEW TIMES: *4:30pm – 5:50pm
*(note that 3/4 practice starts at 4:30)
Pick-up in front of Sport Center at 6:00pm
5th/6th & 7th/8th grades practice time: 4:45pm – 6:10p
Pick-up in front of Sports Center at 6:20pm
PLEASE PICK-UP YOUR CHILD IN A TIMELY MANNER – OUR COACHES ARE NOT PAID TO STAY AFTER PRACTICE AND TO WAIT FOR PARENTS WHO ARE LATE TO ARRIVE.
