Jessie Thackrey Preschool Kiss & Ride

Mornings and afternoons are busy times at Jessie Thackrey Preschool. North Cherry Street is a narrow road, with many residential neighbors and commuter traffic. Sharing the road and taking your time is the key to arrival and departure success. Pedestrians, buses, Kiss & Ride cars, employee cars, and neighborhood traffic are all sharing the same sidewalks and roadways. Everyone needs to be alert and aware. It is our communal responsibility to keep one another safe.

Arrival & Dismissal

Kiss & Ride

Parents should drive towards the school from the intersection of Cherry St. & Fairfax St., following the blue arrows, as shown on the map below. Cars should line up behind the buses on the park side of Cherry Street, not blocking the JTP parking lot entrance. Once buses have departed, parents can pull forward and drop off or pick up students, and exit toward E. Broad St. Parents are not permitted to park on Cherry Street and leave their car. 

Park & Walk

Because the Jessie Thackrey Preschool parking lot is small, we have arranged a parking agreement with Falls Church Presbyterian Church, which is on the corner of Fairfax Street & E. Broad Street. Cars can park in the FC Presbyterian lot or along Fairfax Street. Parents and students can walk through Frady Park, to the entrance of Jessie Thackrey Preschool, as shown on the red line of the map below.
