Parking Lot Reminders

Just a friendly reminder, parents are asked to park in the designated visitor parking areas or on Ilihau Street, not in the stalls labeled "Staff". Staff need to be able to find parking right away in order to get to their assigned classrooms and/or duties on time so that they can supervise and instruct our students.

We also ask that parents follow the drop off and pick up procedures to prevent any accidents. When dropping off and picking up your child, please drive your car in the drop off lane and pull all the way up closer to the cafeteria. Your child should get out or in your car from the passenger side.

Thank you for your cooperation!
