Morning Drop Off and Dismissal

Dear Parents,

Please help us to ensure that morning drop off and dismissal are as safe as possible. It is very important that parents proceed all the way down to the circle (past the map of the United States). Please do not stop half way down, complete a K-turn, and then pull up along side of the curb. We have had a couple of near misses lately. Also, please be mindful of your speed. Many thanks in advance as we strive to keep everyone safe.

Everyday Pick Up Notes

Please make sure to notify the main office in writing if there will be any changes to your child's pick-up routine as we plan to return to in-person learning 5 days a week.
