Safety Concerns

Parents wishing to pick up their children as walkers need to park their cars and meet their children at the fire hydrant. It has been noted that children are being asked to cross the exit lane while buses and cars are exiting in order to get to their parents' cars parked in the lot. This is dangerous for the children as well as the drivers. Thank you for your cooperation in creating a safe dismissal for all of our families.
