Thank you for your patience with the increase in traffic volume under Plan A. Please take note of Carmel's unique traffic pattern.
During afternoon dismissal, we have noticed cars are parking opposite the sidewalk on Camilla Drive, as well as down Lori Lane. Parking in these areas causes students to cross traffic through an unsupervised area to get to their parents. This is not safe for our students. Parking is only permitted on the sidewalk side of Camilla Drive.
Please the see carpool graphic.

Pop Tops for Ronald McDonald House
Start saving those pop tops!
Mr. Simono is collecting pop tops to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. His collection jar is located on the Welcome Desk in the front lobby. Let’s help him help Ronald McDonald House provide a safe, affordable and caring “home away from home” for families of children receiving medical treatment here in Charlotte.
While the past year has been a challenge, it has also provided an opportunity for innovation, creativity, and leadership! We are proud of how the teachers, staff, and administrators of Carmel Middle School have responded and we hope you will consider supporting this progress in the 2021-2022 school year.
