How about a dime, quarter, dollar? Just $.10 equals a Box Top. Contact Caroline Russo at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lauren Molnar at Mrsmolnar79@gmail.com with any questions.
A Message from Deputy Gober
- If you are travelling north on Peachtree Pkwy, please do not turn left into the parking lot unless you can safely pull your entire car into the driveway. It is unsafe to block the roadway and additionally, any car has the potential to be struck on the passenger side of the vehicle.
- If you are travelling south on Peachtree Pkwy, please do not turn right into the parking lot unless there are no cars turning into the lot from your left. Cars turning right must obey the posted yield sign and allow cars turning left to enter into the lot in front of them
- Additionally, PLEASE remember common courtesy at the turn where two lanes of cars merge into one. We have posted a sign reminding drivers to merge. This means that every car in the right hand lane should allow one car from the left hand lane to move over in front of them. If you are in the right hand lane, please allow this to happen. If you are in the left hand lane, please wait your turn to be allowed to merge. Do not try to merge two or more cars at one time.
Thank you for doing your part to help our students arrive to school safely.
