Important Update!

Due to some close calls recently between cars and students in the front parking lot, we want to remind SHS students and parents of the rules and procedures for after school pickup. Remember, school buses have priority in the front parking lot at all times. Cars should NOT get between buses as they are pulling into or out of the parking lot, pass any buses when stop signs are extended and flashing lights are on-even in the parking lot, or use the front parking lot for car rider pick-up. If you have questions regarding these rules and procedures, please contact Mr. Jones at: mljones@madison.k12.al.us
