Dear Cardinal Families,

I want to thank everyone again for their cooperation with our arrival and dismissal procedures. The end of the day dismissal of car riders is going very smoothly. We are continuing to load all students in less than 15 minutes! It would not be possible without your support and cooperation!

A few weeks ago we changed the entrance door for car riders and walkers coming in for breakfast. Our plan includes all students now entering door #9 at 8:25 (no longer door #8 for breakfast only) whether going to breakfast or straight to homeroom class. By previously using the 2 different entrances, there were safety concerns as students were crossing the road and crossing over each other on the sidewalk to get to the door # 8 for breakfast. Now that more students are entering door #9, we have more traffic on the sidewalk up to the door. In order to reduce congestion and maintain safety, only students and staff will be on the section of the sidewalk from door #8 to the south end of the building during arrival times, from 8:20-8:50. I apologize for any inconvenience or confusion. We are focused on getting the students in the building safely. Thank you for your help with this. Please also share this information with any family member that might be delivering your child to school. Please do not hesitate to call me if you have any questions.

Have a great week!

Jennifer Keller, Principal

In case you missed Mr. Gibson's message last week on the district's live feed.
