Thank you to all that have helped in ensuring the safety of our students. The drop off process has gone a lot smoother this week.


Just a reminder: Due to safety, at morning drop off if you are leaving your vehicle, please park in the south (front along Southeastern) lot and walk along the sidewalk as opposed to parking in the west lot and crossing the car line drop off traffic. Otherwise please remain in your vehicle and use the car line drop off. Please note the car line drop off is for quick drop off. If you need to get out of your vehicle to assist your child, please park in the south lot. Thank you for your cooperation in adhering to this procedure.
