ACTION REQUESTED

Attention Car Loop Drop Off Parents:

In an effort to make our morning drop off more efficient we are expanding our student morning drop off zone. We need your help! Please be alert and ready! Staff will cue up cars by turning their signs to a yellow EXIT VEHICLE NOW sign. Once they release students to exit the vehicle all students in the designated drop off zone must exit the vehicle quickly. Please ensure that students have all items ready to exit the vehicle as soon as you are safely stopped and receive the yellow exit sign. you may begin moving again when staff turn their signs back to the blue PLEASE PULL FORWARD sign. It is crucial that every car follows the signs and pulls as far forward to the car in front of them as possible to avoid leaving gaps. The more cars in the expanded drop off area, the faster everyone can exit the vehicle. Just a reminder to please drop off your student in the car loop between 7:00 am and 7:15 to ensure that they are not tardy.
