Important - Car Lane/Bus Lane

Please notice that we now have a car lane and bus lane in our parking lot. Our buses need to get through and we noticed that there was a lot of traffic blocking the way in the past. Please keep this lane clear of cars. Thank you for your cooperation. We also encourage you to have your students walk if they can. Especially with the nice weather. Thanks again.
