Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

  • Curbside drop off and pick up is in the lower lot. Please enter the south road from Heron Drive and follow traffic. Wait in your vehicle and students will load/unload curbside. Please do not skip ahead in the line or pull out in front of the line as this can be dangerous for students and for other drivers.

  • Please travel at a slow, safe speed in the upper and lower parking lots.

  • The curbside lane in the upper lot is reserved for buses only. Should you need to enter the building, use the upper lot to park.

  • Students who walk or ride their bike will be dismissed from the lower doors at the rear of the building and will utilize the walking path.

  • Please make sure your child knows how they will be getting home each day. Inform your child’s teacher or the school office if there is a change in your family’s plan.

We are committed to keeping Rosa Parks students, families, and staff safe. Thank you for your cooperation!

It is that time of year! The weather is cold and we are heading into snow season. Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for cold weather. Students are outside before school and for recess every day that we can be. Please make sure your child has warm clothing (coat, hat, mittens, snow pants, boots, etc.) each day. If your child is in need of winter clothing, please let us know. We have resources available to help.
