Student Drop Off & Pick Up Reminders

Please refer to the High School Drop Off Procedures for a map of the entrances and more information. As a reminder, the loop around the student parking lot is ONE WAY during student arrival and dismissal times. This is for the safety of all of our families.


Students are not to be picked up in the Staff Parking Lot, which is located inside the Bus Loop. Again, this is for the safety of all students and staff. Starting on Tuesday, 10/11, the buses will block the entrance and exit to the staff parking lot. Vehicles will not be able to enter the bus loop or the staff lot. Officer Shaffer will be monitoring this area. Any vehicle in the lot will not be able to exit until all buses have left the school.
