How can parents help with traffic?
- Stop the car
- Drop your child off (or pick them up)
- Roll on to allow others to do the same for their child
The goal is to limit the amount of time that any one car is stopped in front of the school so we can maximize the opportunity for others to drop off or pick up students.
If you want your child to wait in the car with you, or you need to leave your car to be able to go into the building, please use the parking spaces along Adams street.
To reduce the number of cars in front of the building, talk with you child about picking them up along Lime street, or on Broad Street where it intersects with Lime. These are often unused areas and can be very convenient.
How do I learn about weather related announcements?
To check information about school being delayed, dismissed early or cancelled, you can:
Call: The District Information Line at 386-4777. HINT: If you save it to your phone your kids can check it and not bother you at 6 am.
Watch: WCCO (Ch 4), KSTP (Ch 5), FOX (Ch 9), KARE (Ch 11), KEYC (Ch 12)
Listen: KMSU (89.7 FM), KXLP (94.1 FM), KDOG (96.7 FM), KEEZ (99.1 FM), KXAC (100.5 FM), KRRW (101.5), KYSM (103.5 FM), WCCO (830 AM), KTOE (1420 AM)
PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE OFFICE TO SEE IF SCHOOL IS CANCELLED OR RELEASING EARLY. Our school phone lines tie up quickly when an early closing is announced so be sure you have your Snow Emergency Form current as we will follow the directions you have given us on that sheet.
District text messages with reminders and announcements. You can receive text messages to remind you about things such as two-hour late starts and inform you of weather related changes. Subscribe using this link.
Please remember that ACES, our after school childcare program, does not operate when we close due to inclement weather.
* When the weather causes school to start two hours late, breakfast will not be served.
