Parent / Guardian Referral

I know that this is a very stressful time for many of our students and families. I want you to know that I am here to provide social and emotional support for your child. Below is an explanation of why and how a referral for social work services can be made for your child.

It is not safe to walk between cars and in front of oncoming traffic

For the safety of our parents and students, we ask that you do not park your car and walk your child through the parking lot to the door. It is not safe. There are two lanes of traffic; one that stops to drop/pick up students and the other a passing lane. It is hard to see parents and students walking between cars when someone is driving in the passing lane. We ask that you stay in your car and use the drop off line. And as always pull all the way up to the DuJardin sign on Euclid.
