Dismissal Car Circle Changes

Attention Gulf Beaches Elementary School: Important Information involving Dismissal and the Car-Circle.


Starting on Monday, January 31, 2022 the City of St. Pete Beach will begin enforcing Ordinance 82-138 which prohibits stopping, standing or parking along Boca Ciega Drive and 85th Avenue between 1:35 p.m. and 2:35 p.m. A Pinellas County Sheriff’s Deputy will be monitoring traffic and issuing citations. Please arrive as close as possible to dismissal time to help keep traffic moving and avoid a car line back up. Our Car Circle will not open until after 2:35 pm.

Please continue to use the defined car circle route, and adhere to the newly placed signage by the city.

Additionally, please be reminded that early student pick up from the Front Office must be pre-arranged or due to an emergency.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school at 727-893-2630. Thank you.
