If you're picking up your child from JUCO:
• Have the children wait in the stadium for the half hour or so that it takes to get the vehicles cleared out of the parking lot after the game ends. Once the parking lot is clear, the entrances will be open to incoming traffic again.
• Have the children use the JUCO shuttle buses and meet them at one of the drop off locations after the game.
• Designate a meeting spot at a nearby business or area of the CMU campus and meet the children there after the game. Be sure to also per-designate the path the children will take so you can pick well-lit areas and utilize stoplights and crosswalks.
