Respect the Parking Zones and the Neighborhood
ALC practices and events create a large amount of traffic in the limited road space on North Latham. The field side of North Latham is a No Parking/No Loitering zone. Assist ALC in retaining the field permit by respecting the parking zone regulations.
Do Not Block or Turn Around in the driveways across from the field
The neighborhood association request that parents turn around in the first street beyond the field on North Latham. Do not create access issues for the neighbors during drop off and pick up.
Find a Legal Parking/Stopping Spot
There is not enough space on the field side of North Latham for drop off and pick up of the 50 players at our events. Find a legal parking spot. Do not loiter with the car running next to the field 
The Access Road is for Emergencies Only:
Do not enter, block, park in, drive on or stop at the access road that runs between the school and the field. This road appears open and the access restrictions signs are not visible. Do not use this open area as a drop off spot. This is strictly prohibited. The access road is for emergency vehicles at all times. Violations put our field permit at risk. The active playground behind the school does not mark a curb for the children therefore there is a tendency for them to cross the access road without using proper precautions.
