All parents are welcome to attend. Teams and teachers have reached out to priority parents and extended invitations, but all parents and students are welcome to come. Teams will be located in their pods and Voyager teachers will be in the main cafeteria. Please enter through the main doors of the building.

We look forward to seeing you this week.

Parking Lot

Car Riders: we are stressing the importance of following our traffic patterns for arrival and dismissal. Cars are not allowed to line up in front of the building and park/drive between cars in the employee parking lot.

Doors open at 7:35 for car riders, 7:40 for bus riders. Please be sure to line up around the building and allow for traffic to flow safely and appropriately.

Staff are only permitted on the left side of the parking lot. Cars stay to the right when entering our parking lot.

We expect our adult drivers to follow these rules and support our system. Please allow yourself time to follow this process each morning and afternoon. If we work together, traffic will run safely and smoothly and all will enter and exit in a timely fashion.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
