PARKING LOT SAFETY
Please be mindful of our procedures for drop off and pick up of students. When dropping off students in the morning, please pull through the circle drive, all the way up to the cone by the flag pole. Drop off should be quick to expedite the procedures as quickly as possible. If you need to walk your child in, please park in a parking stall. If you would like to volunteer to monitor and assist in drop off, please contact Mrs. Urban. Student safety is our greatest concern and requires everyone's cooperation. If you are entering off of Coolidge, do not cut through the line by the circle- drive to the back of the line. Thank you.
