Safety

There have been some safety issues surrounding student drop-off and pick-up.

We want to remind you that the doors and gates at the drop-off locations close at 7:40 am. After that time, students will need to be dropped off at the front office. At 7:45 am students are considered tardy and parents will have to come into the office and sign them in.

Please make sure to follow the drop-off routes. There have been many close calls when students are being dropped off at the corners. All students need to be dropped off at one of the entry points. We must be able to keep the traffic flow. The entrance is by Wendy's and the exit is by the marquee. Please refer to the attached map of the traffic flow.

Please drive slowly as we do have students and staff that are walking in from their parking spots.

If you have Middle School and High School students to drop off together, please drop both students in the High School line, and the Middle School student will walk through the building to the Middle School side.

If your student is a driver and arrives at school late, they will be required to call a parent to be signed in.

We know that everyone is in a hurry however, we are more concerned with everyone's safety.

Thank you for your understanding and attention to this matter.
