Question of the Week
Here's What I Learned from Last Week's Question
Starting Wednesday, November 7
After some review, the decision was made by the Brighton Police Department to move the drop off zone in the AM closest to the building starting Wednesday, November 7. The front car will pull forward to the crosswalk and stop. The other vehicles pull behind the car in front of them and stop. Once your vehicle has stopped, let your child/ren out on the passenger side closest to the sidewalk. After, please wait for the car in front of you to pull away. Do not try to pass in the drop-off lane.
The small staff lot will be only for buses and no longer a drop-off zone.
If you choose to park and walk your child to their bus line, you’ll need to use the main crosswalk.
Mod Pizza Night
Our next fundraiser night is coming up this Tuesday, November 13th from 4-8pm. Special guest chefs will be working behind the counter. It is always a fun time for the kids and adults and a great fundraiser for Spencer! MOD will donate 20% of your total bill to Spencer!
