Please ensure that you do not drop your child off at school before 7:20 a.m. You are welcome to wait in your vehicle with your child if you arrive before our drop off time.

In addition we ask that parents who chose to park their cars also walk their child across the cross walk.

Thank you for following these guidelines so that we can ensure the safety of all of our students.

Walmart is Opening on January 13th

Please note that Walmart is expected to open on January 13th. No students will be allowed to cross Teasley to meet a parent in the parking lot. As you know, the opening of this store will bring even more traffic to Teasley. Please continue to talk to your child about using the sidewalks and never crossing Teasley to try to go to Walmart.
