Parking Instructions.png

Drop Off & Pick Up

  • ONLY enter the EAST LOT by making a RIGHT turn.  

  • DO NOT use the middle turn lane coming from the East or the West.  This lane will be open so that busses can pass traffic to easily access the bus loop. 

  • If there is a back up on Roosevelt do not let it go past Michigan St. If traffic is, at that point, please use the side roads (N. Colonial or Michigan and wait for openings) to zipper into the line on Roosevelt and then into the east lot. **SEE MAP ABOVE!!! AVOID BLOCKING TRAFFIC ON 96th Ave.

  • Be mindful of the driveways on Roosevelt and avoid blocking them while waiting.  

  • DO NOT get out of your car to help your child get into/out of the car or get buckled. If your child needs this assistance, please park down Woodward, Jefferson or at the Creekside lot and walk over (using the crosswalk with the crossing guard). 

  • When you EXIT the East lot, TURN RIGHT ONLY! Please DO NOT turn left onto Roosevelt!

  • Walkers....PLEASE USE THE CROSSWALK with the CROSSING GUARD.  Using the East parking lot crosswalk is hazardous due to the volume of traffic.​

Michigan 3rd Grade Reading Legislation

In 2016, Michigan Legislature passed a bill to ensure that all children exiting 3rd grade are proficient in reading.  Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, students must show proficiency on the year end state assessment to be promoted to 4th grade.  School staff is required to provide ongoing assessment and inform parents of possible student difficulty by creating an IRIP (individualized reading improvement plan).

ZPS approaches this legislation not as a requirement, but as an opportunity to continue to provide the best possible reading instruction for all students.  We are dedicated to using the assessment data gathered to plan for WIN and WIN+ interventions that support student learning.  We will continue to partner with parents to ensure success for all.  

An informational VIDEO has been developed to provide clarity on this topic.
