Arrival & Dismissal Safety Reminder

If you arrive in a vehicle you can drop off or pick up your student(s) in the carpool lane ONLY. Parents should not park on school property and exit their vehicle to walk their students to the door or to pick up their child. The only parents dropping students off or picking them up on foot should be those who walked to school from home or from the neighborhood.

For the safety of our students and with consideration for those children who are scared of dogs, NO pets are allowed on school property. Thank you!
