Car Rider Line Reminders

As the weather gets colder we tend to see an increase in car riders. Make sure to check out the information below. This will ensure that all of our students are dropped off and picked up in the safest manner possible. Thanks for your help!

***Car rider - drop off and pick up is on the West side of the building. Enter Middle School East from the main entrance and proceed to Doors 5 & 7. Please do not drop off or pick up at Door 1. Students may enter the building at 6:50AM and head to the cafeteria at that time. Anyone dropped off before 6:50AM can wait in the vestibules at Door 5 & Door 7. Please drive slowly and patiently to ensure the safety of our students.
