Signs for Cars

For returning parents, you know that we have in years past asked you to create a sign with your child’s name and your child’s teacher’s name to put on your dashboard for car pickup. Typically, the sign is used during inclement weather to expedite the pickup process. In order to efficiently transition students next week during arrival/dismissal, we are asking you to please put the sign on your dashboard during drop-off and pick-up. Feel free to make a copy of this sign to use or just make your own.
