Bus Loading Zone
Please be very cautious if you are parking on the opposite side of the street. We have staff outside watching the students but many parents are calling their kids from across the street. Although most students are great at checking both ways before crossing, we are worried for their safety.
Also, the bus loading area must be kept free for the 4 buses. Please don't park in this area during bus loading times.
Overall, things are running smoothly at the end of the day! Thanks for helping us keep kids safe!
