Parents and Community Members,
This notice is to inform you of our morning drop off and afternoon pick up routines that are followed throughout the school year. Because of the large numbers of buses that are utilized to transport our students to and from school our main parking lot is closed to non-staff automobile entry from 8:35 a.m. until 9:10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. until 3:55 p.m. It is a matter of safety for all involved that this is necessary. Parent pick up/ drop off for students can occur at either end of our front parking area or along the sidewalk on 5th street. Students who are picked up are instructed to walk to either end of the parking lot to the crosswalk areas in order to reach the vehicle that is transporting them. Also, we ask that you are aware of and respectful of our neighboring property owners. Please do not park on the curbs or block adjacent property driveways. We appreciate your understanding and concern for the safety of all.
