Safety Information

It is important to be aware that the Fire Lane (Raptor Way/bus lane) is a Fire Lane at all times, regardless of whether or not school is in session. We understand this lane is a convenient place to park in the evening and during weekend events, but please always use regular parking if you are going to be leaving your vehicle and are not just picking up a student. It is important that emergency vehicles always have access to the building through this lane.

If you are coordinating any after hours events, please communicate this with your group. Thanks for your help!
