Attention Chesnut Parents - No Left Hand turns from North Peachtree into or out of car pool.

New Chesnut car pool rule for N. Peachtree Road.

The following was sent to all Chesnut parents via email this evening.

Morning Drop Off Changes
To minimize North bound traffic congestion on North Peachtree Road, Dunwoody Police and Chesnut School will implement the following changes on Monday, August 23.
Arrivals before 7:30 am - you may make right and left hand turns from North Peachtree road into the lower school parking lot
Arrivals between 7:30 and 8:15 am - ONLY RIGHT turns can be made from North Peachtree into the lower school parking lot; cones will be placed in the middle of North Peachtree blocking the ability to turn left.

If you travel north on North Peachtree Road between 7:30 and 8:00, you have a couple of options:
1) park on a side street in the Dunwoody North subdivision and walk on the side walk to the crossing guard on North Peachtree
2) travel through the Dunwoody North subdivision and exit back on North Peachtree road north of the school and get into the drop-off line
3) travel on Cotillion Road, turn right on North Shallowford, turn right on Peachford, and turn right on North Peachtree getting into the drop-off line

We DO NOT recommend crossing North Peachtree at any other location than at the Crossing Guard at the front of the school.

Please remember you can only turn RIGHT out of the lower parking lot going south bound on North Peachtree road.

I think is is unacceptable to ENCOURAGE cut-through traffic in a residential neighborhood.

N. Peachtree is technically a residential street, as well, but it is definitely used by many travelers to get from here to there. To be clear, ALL residential streets are just as tax-funded as are arterial streets and should be utilized when special situations exist. The situation on N. Peachtree at Chestnut is a special situation and is only needed to solve an issue for about 45 minutes on school days. It is not a 24x7 cut-through recommendation.
