Parent Pickup Reminder
Also, an important note about pick-up. Any student who is being picked up at dismissal must be picked up in our parent pick-up loop. Asking your child to walk off campus to get picked up causes problems for the community and the private businesses that are in the neighborhood. We have a great relationship with all of our neighbors in the community, and we want to keep it this way. All parents are expected to follow the school procedure for student pick up by waiting patiently in the parent pickup loop after school.
Another important note - students being picked up after an after school activity should be picked up at the school. Please do not ask your children to meet you off campus. This is a safety concern for your child.
Thank you for your attention to these important matters.
