Drop off and Pick up
**Please be aware that our crossing patrol is up and running, please be mindful of them when using the parking lot.
Students need to be dropped off at the curb and make every effort to exit curbside.
Please make an effort to utilize the crosswalk near the 1st-3rd grade entrance.
Avoid parking in driveways, bus zone and blocking others in.
Please arrange for where your children will be picked up - a suggestion is all of your children meet in the youngest child's exit location.
We are noticing long delays to turn onto Division, please be mindful of this and patient as others pick/drop off their children.
