For the Safety Of Our Students Please Review our Student Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

Thank you to our parents and family members who are following the "ONE WAY" traffic each morning and afternoon. For those Gaines families that don't know, when dropping off and picking up students you MUST enter at the driveway by the kickball field and exit next to the building across from the swings and basketball court. The front of the school is for bus traffic in the morning and afternoon. PLEASE DO NOT drop your child/children on the opposite side of the street from the front of our building. This can be very dangerous, especially when they are walking in between the buses and cannot be seen by the bus drivers. Please be cautious and watch for students who may be outside when you arrive. The second set of cones are set up until 3:35 pm. If you are visiting school between 9:00 am and 2:45 pm you may park in front of the building only during these times. All visitors are required to check in at the office and receive a visitors pass that MUST be worn so that staff members can see it and will know you have checked in. Please remember that the safety of our students is our number one priority.
