In-Person Reminders

Please adhere to the following reminders:

  • Since busses are running at 50% capacity, please do not have your child ride home with a friend. This is especially important on route 7 since the route is at maximum capacity.
  • Please make sure your kids know how they are getting home each day.
  • If you have a friend or family member picking up your child, please email the office to add them to your emergency card.
  • Car line -- for pick up and drop off please pull all the way up in the left lane and then merge one at a time into the right lane to help make pick-up/drop-off smoother. Thank you!
