Parking Lot Procedure

Please do not park in the front or back parking lot during arrival or dismissal. The back parking lot is for staff. The front parking lot is for the buses only. If your child is a 5th Grade Safety, you may drop off in the front so they can enter the front door and go to their post on time in the mornings. If your child is not a 5th grade safety, they cannot be dropped off in the front. You must follow the drop off procedures.

If you're child is truly a walker, you must park in the middle school parking lot or at the administration buildings parking lot and you can walk your child up to the front doors.

Do not let your child out of your vehicle prior to 8:35 am as there is no supervision or adult monitoring. Safety is the priority.

Thank you for your cooperation!
