Morning Drop-off at Portico

It has been brought to our attention that there are safety concerns regarding parent driving during morning drop-off. Going forward any vehicles dropping off students in front of the portico will not be permitted to park in front of the main door. Any vehicles dropping off students will enter thru the designated path indicated by orange cones. The side entrance to our gym will be open from 8:45-9:05 am. The doors at the portico will remain unlocked until 9:20 am. Students entering the portico should be dropped off and walk on the side of the orange cones closest to the building. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
