  • From our New Principal - Mrs. Amy Doty!  

    My name is Amy Doty and I am so very honored to be your next principal. I started my career as an ESL teacher at an elementary school in Durham. After teaching in the classroom for 7 years, I became an ESL lead teacher for the district. That whet my appetite for administration and I soon got my Master’s in Ed. Leadership at UNC-Chapel Hill. I started out as an AP at a middle school and then I took a leave of absence when Jason, my husband, and I had twin girls. Four years later I became the Assistant Principal at Seawell Elementary in Chapel Hill, where I stayed for close to 8 years. My last position was as the district coordinator of Dual Language and World Languages.
    I’m looking forward to meeting you all in the coming weeks!

    Morning and Afternoon Traffic Patterns 

    Thank you for your patience during morning drop off and afternoon pick up times. Late last year the traffic pattern was evaluated by the Chatham County Schools’ Central Office staff and the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office.  We recognize that traffic has increased this year.  Below are the directions for traffic flow.  Please bear with us as we continue to monitor this situation.




    ·       Each day we will close the traditional front driveway entrance from approximately 2:30-3:15.  During this time frame, cars will enter via the traditional driveway exit and proceed through the upper parking lot.  An additional lane has been added to this part of the driveway to accommodate the traffic pattern.

    ·       Two car rider queue lines will extend from the front of the school through the upper parking lot.  Drivers that intend to pick up car riders will join and follow one of the two queue lines.

    ·       No procedural changes will occur for picking up students and exiting the driveway.

    ·       Individuals that wish to park and access the school or leave campus between approximately 2:30-3:15 are advised to utilize the gravel parking lot on the corner of Hamlet Chapel Road and River Rd, and follow the pathway that extends through the wooded area. Please use the front door(Main Entrance).



    • All cars entering in the mornings should enter through the second gate which is the entrance with the yellow gate arm.
    • Please stay in the line and not go around cars as some students do exit the car on the left.
    • Individuals parking should also go through second gate and exit through the entrance near the Perry Harrison sign.
    • Please do not enter through the entrance with the (Perry Harrison sign) in the mornings.
