Safety Reminders

* Please pull all the way forward in the pick up/drop off lane.

* If you are walking your child to the playground in the morning, please park on the road. Extra traffic in the drop off area slows down our mornings.

* The front driveway is for bus traffic only before school and after school. If you are dropping off students, please use the drop off lane on 36th Street or park on the road and walk up.

* Encourage any children walking to use cross walks where the crossing guards are present.

* All school doors are locked between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM. Doors are unlocked when the 3:00 bell rings. Parents are asked to wait outside until 3:00.

Mid Quarters

In this week's folder you will find a mid quarter update from your child's teacher. Please make contact with questions or concerns.
