• Safety Procedures

    Pick Up/Drop Off

    We are requesting that all parents observe the following expectations:

    • Put student and staff safety first when driving on or near school grounds.
    • Drive vehicles to the farthest open slot around the circle to allow more parents to
      pick up/drop off their children.
    • Pick up and drop off students within the designated area only.
    • Be aware of students and staff members who are in the crosswalk areas at all
    • Do not drive through the crosswalk area when students/parents/staff are crossing.
    • Park in the lot if entering the building. (Do not park in the pick up/drop off area.)
      We discourage parents from walking into the building to pick up their children at the end of the day; however, students must have an adult walk with them from the building to the parking lot.
    • Observe all posted traffic signs and traffic laws.
