Drop-Off & Pick-Up

Please be extra careful when picking up and dropping off our Spartans in the morning. We know that it can be crowded but we would much rather our students be a little late and safe than for anyone to get hurt. Thank you for your continued support in helping to maintain a calm and cordial environment for all our students and families.
