ARRIVAL / DISMISSAL REMINDERS
I wanted to take a moment to remind you about our drop off and pick up procedures.
Please ensure you are utilizing the pick up and drop off lane at arrival and dismissal. If you use the parking lot, you will need to park and walk your child to the gate. Students are not allowed to walk in or across the parking lot by themselves.
We greatly appreciate your support in keeping our students safe. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.
