Residential Parking

What is the point of Residential Parking if the schools do not respect it? Yes, I understand that people have to pick up their kids BUT the school worker that was directing the cars informed me that they are NOT to park they are supposed to follow his direction. Obviously they do not and yes people park early and wait. It is not an in and out thing, either way they are not supposed to do that. Some "parents" even get attitudes when asked to move. Why continue to pay for a residential parking pass if no one follows it?

    , We live in the 3700 W 81st Pl and Dawes school is in the 3800 block, In the morning it is a traffic jam in all directions on 81st Pl and Hamlin with parents dropping off their children. In the afternoon they block off the street the school sits on but not in the morning (go figure). The aldeman will not even adress the issue. I pray that a emergency vehicle does not need to get down either of these streets!!!!!!' There has to be a better way.

    I want even touch on the teachers parking on our block they are rude and inconsiderate. They have a PARKING LOT.

    Unfortunately, and with the snow and ice, CPS does not provide enough parking for teachers and staff. This also means there is no place for parents to park if they have school business. Our schools are very overcrowd and taking more neighborhood children than ever before - which causes more traffic problems. The teachers and staff of the building are there for your neighborhood children. Many parents prefer to drive their children to school rather than have them walk in this cold. No one should treat neighbors and members of the community in a rude manner, but please be patience about the parking at school entrance and exit time. If someone parks their car where residential stickers are required, a ticket should be issued by CPD.

  • It seems that some of the parents who post these comments should actually be required to sit in class with their child or childrens.

Fast Facts: The best player in the state of Illinois not named Jalen Brunson is featured in this game. Matthews, a long, lean slasher and elite scorer, has been on the national radar since junior high. He has maintained his lofty status at St. Rita having committed to Kentucky and sitting as the 42nd-ranked prospect nationally by ESPN. He was a finalist for the McDonald’s All-American game, but only Brunson was selected from Illinois when the rosters were announced Wednesday. Matthews isn’t the only star on his team, however. Harris, who transferred to St. Rita from Morgan Park this year, is committed to Tulane. Chaney, the team’s point guard, is headed to Tennessee. Matthews leads the team with 22.4 points per game, Harris averages 14.5 and Chaney averages 12.7. St. Rita is ranked third in the Chicagoland area by CSN Chicago. Hales is among the top Class 2A teams in the state, ranked fifth by CSN Chicago. Leading the way is two-sport star Dominic Christian. In addition to leading the basketball team, he has committed to Nevada to play wide receiver next year. He was named the CSN Chicago Allstate Athlete of the Week on Jan. 9. Fox is the team’s power forward and plays his AAU ball for Chi-City Elite.
