Parking Lot Etiquette
Stopping on the straight away directly in front of the school is intended for those who are dropping their student(s) curb-side and pulling away. If you choose to escort your student(s) into the school, please park in a designated parking spot first. Doing so will keep the flow of traffic moving more efficiently and ensure everyone's safety crossing on both sides through the circle. Your cooperation is appreciated - thank you.
LRSWMD highlighted BJAMS in the Collection Connection publication as a "Successful Diverter" thanks to our strong commitment to recycling and composting. Click the button above to read the full article. Let's keep up the good work!
