Parents and teens, are you ready? Classes for Carroll ISD schools begin next week on Monday, August 22!
The Southlake Police Department, along with the City and Carroll ISD leadership, are working to ensure parents and teens are aware of the new traffic signal at the north entrance of Carroll High School on White Chapel.
The traffic signal is part of the North White Chapel improvement project. The City commissioned a traffic study for this project, which noted there is adequate pedestrian foot traffic to warrant a crossing signal at Ascot and White Chapel.
The new traffic signal is a significant change for drivers who will be dropping-off or picking-up students at CHS. It’s important that drivers take a look at the *attached map and become familiar with the flow of traffic and follow the directions as shown.

The Southlake Police Department will have its School Resource Officer, Officer David Tatsak, on site to help keep traffic moving efficiently. Drivers can assist officers by adhering to the traffic pattern outlined on the map.
Police Chief James Brandon says, “This will greatly ensure a smooth transition during peak drop-off and pick-up times. There will also be a significant police presence around the school to make sure everyone obeys the traffic laws. The safety of our kids is of the utmost importance.” Additionally, if your child is walking to and from school, they are encouraged to use the crosswalk at the new light.
Additional police officers, along with SROs, will be on hand at all CISD schools during the first weeks of school. Parents are encouraged to allow extra travel time when dropping-off or picking-up children from school to allow for any construction in the area or heavy traffic.
