Barrett-Jackson Traffic Directions

In working with the Scottsdale Police Department, we have devised the following traffic plan for next week. 94th Street will be closed southbound at Bell Road throughout the week, which will curtail cars from entering the campus in their normal way. Please watch for Barrett-Jackson shuttle buses that will be using the easement to access Westworld!

Those coming for conferences, Athenaeum pick-up or Solis Ortus drop-off should follow the same route!

To accommodate the traffic plan, the school times will need to be adjusted as follows:

  • 11:30 am: Kindergarten, first and second grades will dismiss. Cars should again enter from 92nd Street, SPA entrance.
  • 11:45 am: 3rd, 4th, & 5th Grades, as well as younger siblings, will dismiss. Cars should again enter from 92nd Street, SPA entrance.
  • 12:15 pm: Students with older Prep siblings and students riding buses will be held until 12:15 pm when SPA dismisses. All 6-8th grade SPA siblings will be dismissed if you have signed the SPA permission slip for them to be dismissed for shared pick-up.
  • 12:30 pm: ACS Dismissal complete and buses leave for drop off at satellite sites.

NEW TRAFFIC PLAN: ALL traffic for ACS and SPA will be required to enter from 92nd Street through the Scottsdale Prep entrance. All cars will then proceed through the lanes for Scottsdale Prep. ACS/Prep shared families and ACS only families should stay to the right and use the B lane. After driving through the Scottsdale Prep lanes, ACS families will make a right into the south side of the ACS parking lot and proceed to the ACS lanes. After picking up children, parents will exit at 94th Street as usual following Scottsdale PD Officer instructions.
Map of Alternate Traffic Flow for Week of January 13-16
All families will need to access both school properties from the west on Bahia. Traffic will not be allowed use of 94th Street southbound. Only northbound traffic will be allowed on 94th Street.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Mr. Eric Hull, Assistant Headmaster, at ehull@archwayscottsdale.org.
