Parents dropping off and picking up students at Prien Lake Elementary are going to be following a new route. 

The goal of the road safety project at the school is to aid in traffic congestion on Nelson Road during the beginning and end of the school day.

With the new route, drivers can turn into the new drive from either direction on Nelson Road but you MUST exit to the RIGHT when leaving, said Calcasieu Parish School Board spokeswoman Holly Holland.

Student drop-off hours are between 7:10 a.m. and 7:40 a.m. If parents arrive later than the designated drop-off time, they must check their child into the front office for tardiness.

Kids who walk or ride the bus home will be dismissed from Prien Lake Elementary classes at 2:50 p.m. and students who are picked up will be dismissed at 2:55 p.m. 

The school board asks for patience as the new changes are put into place, Holland said.
