Building hours and entrances - Please follow traffic flow in the morning!

Please use Jackson Street each morning for student drop off. The main entrance (Stone Drive side of the building) is to be used by Jackson faculty and buses only. If your student arrives after 8:15, please park in "visitor" parking and walk in to the main office. Several parents have used the bus entrance in the morning this week and were "stuck" between buses that were unloading. This causes extra wait time and frustration for many different people, especially those who must wait! Often, impatience leads to poor choices. Keeping our students safe is the number one priority. Please use Jackson Street 7:20-8:15. Thank you!
