Principal's Weekly Message

Morning Drop Off

We have had several ongoing safety concerns with drop offs in the front of the school. So, in order to provide the safest possible drop off for our students, we are asking that all students be dropped off at the horseshoe. If you need to walk your child into the school, please park in the bus parking lot. Thank you for your assistance.
