Just a few reminders:

Please drive safely in our parking lots and around our school:

There are two lanes in our parking lots. Drop off and pick up ONLY in the outer lane. The inside lane is for those parking or driving thru. Please do not drop your children off in this lane.

* Please do not park on Center Drive in the morning or afternoon. There are "No Parking" signs posted.

*For safety reasons, please do not allow children to walk thru cars. Use the crosswalk in our front parking lot and on the corner of Center & Lincoln.

Please help us to limit classroom interruptions by helping your child remember their water bottles, lunch, school supplies, etc. Birthday treats are okay

We appreciate your support.

Wear your college shirt every Monday.
