A Note From Our Librarian, Jennifer Neys
Drop off & pick up safety guidelines:
Thank you for following all of our safety procedures at Valhalla. There are two options to . drop-off and pick up your students. You can park in the neighborhood and walk together up to the blacktop or stay in your vehicle and utlize the traffic circle where Mr. Ken and Miss Pappas will be there to help. Here are some reminders to review:
Please do not turn left from Kiki Dr. into Valhalla's parking lot. Only school busses are allowed to turn left into the parking lot, due to safety issues such as children crossing the street. You're also cutting in front of families who have been patiently waiting in the car line to pick up their students.
Please do not turn left out of our parking lot. Again, we have children and families using our crosswalk and it can be very dangerous. Our top priority is the safety of our students and families. Please turn right ONLY out of our parking lot.
Please do not park in our staff parking lot (it is for staff only). We were a little lax over distance learning, but you'll have to now go back to parking on the street if you need drop off or pick up your child. Every single staff space is assigned to a staff member and used during the school year.
Please do not walk through the parking lot. We have staff cars and busses moving through the parking lot and it is a big safety concern to be walking through our parking lot. Please instead use our walkways.
You can walk your student to their spot on the blacktop in the morning. You are welcome to stay through the pledge of allegiance on the blacktop in the back. Once the pledge is over, we ask that you quickly leave campus so we can get our students focused and ready for the day.
You can come and pick up your child from their classroom after school, however, please do not come onto campus until 2:40pm (M/T/Th/F) and 12:55pm (Wednesday) as to not distract from learning.
We thank you for your cooperation - our students' safety is our top priority!
