1. As you get off on the Leavenworth exit, try to stay in the middle lane.
2. At the stoplight at the end of the exit, turn right onto Leavenworth Street. (Yes, you can turn right on red even from the middle lane in this case.)
3. Get into the far left lane as soon as possible.
4A. IF YOU ARE DROPPING CHILDREN OFF, follow Path 2 on the graphic. –In fifty feet, turn left to enter the small drive that leads to the school. –Let your children off at the first door on the left. –Families may NOT park in this back lot.
4B. IF YOU ARE PARKING, follow Path 1 on the graphic. –Turn left at the next light (27th Street.) —Stay in the left lane and enter the parking lot by either of two entrances. –After parking, head towards the breezeway to the right of the church. The door to the Learning Center is straight across, just past the line of cars dropping their children off.
If the lot is full, you can park on the street. You will have to exit the parking lot onto St. Mary’s, which is one-way going the wrong direction.
Keep in the left lane, and
At your earliest convenience (29th Street), make two lefts, which will bring you back on Leavenworth headed to the Learning Center.
Feel free to take that same left on 27th Street (which leads the parking lot), but this time park on either side of the street.
WHEN YOU LEAVE:
Take St. Mary’s Avenue (it only goes one way) for about a block
Turn LEFT on 29th Street.
Stay in the left-hand lane, go across Leavenworth at the stoplight, and keep bearing left.
This will dump you onto I-480.
Stay rightish to get on 80 West; get leftish for Bellevue, Iowa, etc.
