Transportation

DIRECTIONS TO NOLAN:
Drive up Signal Mountain via the main road, Signal Mountain Boulevard/Route 127. After the "Welcome to Signal Mountain" sign but before the traffic light, take the first left onto Signal Mountain Blvd. -- it is directly across from the CVS entrance. This will become Maryland Avenue and then it becomes James Boulevard after bending around to the right. Turn left onto Timberlinks Drive, just before the Golf Club. Stay on Timberlinks for about two miles. It will bend to the right and become Shackleford Ridge Road. Turn left onto Sam Powell Drive and Nolan Elementary is on your left.

The 3-5 grade entrance is past the parking lot on the left. The main school entrance is past that on the left, across from the flag. Continue up Sam Powell past Nolan, to the next left for the K-2 entrance line.

CAR RIDER PROCEDURES:
Morning Drop-Off:

Student drop-off may begin at 8:35 am as teachers are on-duty for student safety and supervision.

Orange cones are placed at the school's third/main entrance at 8:15 am each morning. Please proceed down to the last Nolan entrance and turn left into the drive just before entering the middle/high school campus for car rider drop-off. 

Cars will pull all the way down past the front entrance to the cone where staff and/or safety patrol are directing. Several cars will unload at once and students will proceed into the building through the front doors. Please have students ready to exit with their belongings by themselves each morning to keep the flow of our morning traffic. To ensure the safety of our children, please do not pull out of line while children are still unloading. Follow the car in front of you through the line and out the exit.

Afternoon Pick-Up:

All students must exit the building from their designated wing (K-2 front, or 3-5 side).  
 
Car riders must be picked up no later than 15 minutes after school dismisses. Remaining students will be checked into the aftercare program, and SACC registration and daily rates will apply.
Please have your Nolan car tags visible to assist our teachers with loading. This is especially helpful on rainy days!

Absolutely no parking in the main front entrance of the school after 3:00 p.m., as we must keep this area clear for buses. If you need to dismiss your child early from school, please park in the back of the side lot, so as to not block the 3-5 pickup lines. Walk into the main entrance and sign your child out in the office.
K through 2 ONLY: Please turn onto Sam Powell Drive using the right outside lane. Proceed to the last Nolan entrance on the left, before the Middle-High School Campus. Please pull all the way up to the orange cones in either the left or right lane. This ensures we can fit as many cars as possible in the lines. Do not pull ahead or out of the line until the teacher has motioned for you to do so.

3 through 5 only: Please turn onto Sam Powell Drive using the left inside turn lane. Immediately turn left off of Sam Powell Drive, to the side parking lot, in the left or right pickup lane beside the school. Once recess has been dismissed, the lines may move up slightly. Please do not park and leave your car unattended during this time. Please do not block the designated pedestrian walkways. Once pickup has begun, proceed ahead when directed, and exit the back of the school back onto Shackleford Ridge in your appropriate lane. Do not pull ahead or out of the line until the teacher has motioned for you to do so.

K-2 and 3-5 both: Please follow the K through 2 instructions above, picking up your K-2 student first. You will then progress out of the school lot, onto Sam Powell, and turn right into the side parking lot pickup lane, to pick up your 3-5 student. Proceed ahead when directed, and exit the back of the school back onto Shackleford Ridge. Do not pull ahead or out of the line until the teacher has motioned for you to do so.

Carline Procedures Video:

All students must be picked up according to school procedures. If you have a question, please contact school administration at 423-886-0898.

Thank you for following the above procedures to ensure the safety of all of our Nolan students!

BUS INFORMATION

For bus rules, bus stop locations, numbers, etc., visit HCDE.

To keep our families informed, Nolan Elementary offers a text messaging service to the parents/guardians of bus riders.

When HCDE Transportation notifies Nolan that a bus is running late, a text will be sent to those who are registered informing you of the delay.

 
Some Notes Regarding Traffic:

In the afternoons, traffic does not move from shortly before 3:30 p.m. until the students are dismissed from Nolan at 3:50 p.m. Once school lets out and the students make it to their rides, traffic starts to flow again. Because of this, the best time to arrive is right after school is out, when traffic has begun to flow once more.

Please do NOT block the intersections around and at the school. This includes Shackleford Ridge/Sam Powell stop sign intersection, and all entrance/exit intersections. Please note that buses must be able to get into the school as well, and please follow the directions of local police officers helping direct traffic, when present.

Do not leave cars parked/unattended in front of the school after 3:20 p.m. If you are volunteering at school and will be there past 3:20, please use the side parking lot. Thank you.

Please note there are also student/parent pedestrians making their way to and from the school both in the mornings and afternoons. Pedestrians have the right of way. Please do not block the designated walkway. Thank you.

We appreciate everyone's diligence in ensuring the safety of all students and parents during drop-off and pick-up at Nolan.

Thank you!
