Parking Reminders

Please be courteous to our neighbors and other drivers when dropping off and picking up your children. Many cars have been double parking and this causes a safety concern for students. We do not want any students having to enter traffic to get in the car. It is safer to wait a few minutes or designate a meeting location in a different area. Thank you.
