To ensure smooth traffic flow and ease traffic congestion, we would appreciate it if you will kindly instruct your drivers to follow the simple rules below:

  • Please follow the JKS Parking Plan below and ensure that your drivers are informed to use only the designated Entry/Exit points as the parking area is equipped with traffic spikes and the school will not be responsible if motor vehicle tires are damaged due to drivers failing to follow our traffic instructions.

  • Kindly instruct your driver not to block the road and wait for returning passengers, nannies and your child/children by the gate.  He must make a U-turn around the next corner.  This will ensure that we will have free flowing traffic.

  • Drivers must follow the school security guards’ directions regarding the overcrowding and movement of cars especially after students disembark (as we have noticed that drivers do not follow the guards’ instructions because they insist on blocking the road waiting for the child to disembark from the car).

  • Note that motor vehicles will not be allowed to stop in front of the main Gates 1, 2, and 5 to avoid congestion.

  • For students with siblings in the school, the older child will leave the school together with the younger child through the younger child’s assigned gate. Siblings must carry their IDs.

 

 

Respectfully
