Parent Reminders

MASKS: Please make sure you are wearing your mask when you are on campus. The Doyle campus extends to the first Doyle sign (before entering the traffic circle). Every person is required to wear their mask regardless of vaccination status.

TRAFFIC CIRCLE: Please have your child ready with their belongings on the passenger side of the car. No person should get out of their car on the left/driver side of the car. If you need to get out with your child, park off campus and walk in. Please make sure you are also obeying all street signs. No cars should be parked in the red zone or in the middle of a crosswalk.

TK/KINDERGARTEN AND 1ST GRADE PARENTS: Please make sure to bring your childs sign to indicate who you are picking up. This helps the process move faster and keeps everyone safe. We ask that you do not call a teacher to the gate to tell them who you are looking for. The signs are to keep your family and our school community safe.

Thank you for your cooperation.
