Student Drop-off & Traffic Flow

Improving School Traffic Flow

In order to improve traffic flow around Benton Elementary School, please follow the following drop-off procedures below. Please be patient and extra careful during drop-off and pick-up times.


1. For Middle School drop-off ONLY: Please enter the school property via Forrest Street and turn Right onto Kenneth St. and use the middle school drive to drop-off students. Please exit back out to the north onto Forrest Street and exit the campus from Forrest Street onto McCleansboro Street.

2. For Elementary School drop-off ONLY: Please enter the school property via E. McKenzie Street and drop-off students in front of the elementary school. There will be school personnel helping students out of cars in the morning. Please do NOT drop students off on other streets within the school campus as this presents a danger to our students. Please exit using Mr. A. Way and exit the campus from E. McKenzie Street onto McCleansboro Street.

3. For Middle School AND Elementary School drop-off: For those who are dropping students off at both schools please enter the school property via E. McKenzie Street and utilize the drop off procedure explained in #2 above. Once you have dropped off your elementary students, please continue to pull along in front of the middle school to drop off your middle school students. Please exit using either Mr. A. Way or the parking drive directly North of Mr. A. Way and then continue onto E. McKenzie Street and onto McCleansboro Street.

4. Please adhere to the traffic flow patterns depicted on the map below for both drop-off and pick-up.
