Parking Lot changes
We have been receiving a number of reports of students who are being dropped off in the parking lot. Students are then left to cross the parking lot on their own and are making their way to the cross walk unsupervised.
To ensure that our students and families are kept safe, we will be placing cones down to block off all through traffic in the first row of the parking lot closest to the building. If you would like to drop off your child, please use the designated lanes in the front of the school.
