Arrival and Dismissal: Fiske Traffic Safety Rules

We strongly encourage walking, biking and carpooling to Fiske.


Biking to School

Unless accompanied by an adult, a student must be in grades 3-5 in order to ride a bike to school.

All riders must wear helmets. Weather permitting; students may ride bikes to school from September to Thanksgiving and from April Vacation through the end of the school year.

Skate boards, scooters, rollerblades, etc. are not allowed at school.


The safety of all Fiske students during morning drop-off and afternoon dismissal is of great importance both to Fiske School administration and staff as well as the Fiske PTO.

The Fiske school community has worked with the Lexington Police Department to create simple traffic rules and a system to enforce them.

We ask that everyone visiting Fiske School at morning drop-off (8:00am – 9:15am) or afternoon dismissal (2:45pm – 3:30pm) abide by these simple rules to keep everyone safe.

Colony Road Live Dismissal to a Waiting Vehicle Safety Rules

Pick-up must occur between 3:10pm and 3:25pm (Thursday dismissal is between 12:10pm and 12:25pm). After 3:35pm (12:35pm on Thursday), please pick-up your child/children directly from the school office. Your live dismissal ID card must always be visible in your vehicle.

All individuals picking up children must follow the designated traffic pattern and not pass other cars or jump the line.

Children will only be loaded into the front five cars parked near the colored cones.

If your child/children are not ready when you reach the loading area, you must follow the traffic pattern to circle round and rejoin the line.

Do not get out of your car in the live dismissal line.  If it is necessary, please do so after moving away from the dismissal area.

To get to the live dismissal line, take Grant Street to Colony Road.  Cars may only join the dismissal line from the Grant Street side of Colony Road.    

Failure to abide by these rules at all times will result in loss of live dismissal privileges.
