Drop and Pick Up Import Information

To maximize safety in the loading area, it is very important to exercise caution when driving up to the white loading/unloading zone. Cars must pull up next to the white curb. The white curb is for loading and unloading only. *Drivers cannot park and leave a car unattended in this area. Drivers must stay in or with the car while waiting for children so that a car can be moved forward whenever necessary and does not block traffic. Please do not stop at the entrance of the driveway. Pull forward to pick up or drop off your child. This will allow for a smoother flow of traffic for everyone involved.

Parents should never park in the staff parking lot spaces or in the school bus loading/unloading zone.


Mr. McKinley and Ms. Leyva

What is Positive Behavior Support or PBIS?

Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) is an approach to supporting students to be successful in schools. PBS was developed from research in the fields of behavior theory and effective instruction. PBS supports all students through intervention ranging from a school-wide system to a system for developing individualized plans for specific students. School-wide PBIS focuses on the development and implementation of proactive procedures and practices to prevent problem behavior for all students and improve school climate.
