We need help keeping our parking lot safe for our children!

We have had few close calls recently in our parking lot that thankfully didn't result in an accident. We want to keep our children safe; therefore, we will enforce this parking lot procedure as best we can as it is outlined in our handbook. Children should not be dropped off in our parking lot in the mornings. If you choose not to use the drop off lane in front of the school, please park your car and walk your child across the crosswalk. Additionally, please do not pull into one of the handicap parking spaces unless you have a handicap parking permit.

If you are reading this and are not the one who brings your child to school, please share this safety procedure with the driver who brings your child to school. We appreciate your cooperation with this as we always make safety our prority at Rocky Creek!
