Just a friendly reminder of our Drop Off and Pick Up procedures. There are two designated lanes for drop off and pick up. These are not parking lanes. Please move as far forward as you can. Drop your child off or pick them up after you have cleared the crosswalk on the south end. For pick up, families are welcome to park in the Visitors' section of the football field and have older students walk to them (3rd-5th). They may also get their young sibling (1st-2nd grade). The parking lot is not for drop offs or pick ups. Do not block other vehicles from being able to leave. You may park in the parking lot provided there is space. A picture has been provided. Thank you for your continued support.
