DROP OFF AND PICK UP PROCEDURES
Student drop off and pick up are in the parking lot north of the school. Cars enter from the northernmost gate going the direction indicated (west) and either park in the lot (if you plan on getting out of the car and walking on campus to pick up your child) or line up in the drive through lane closest to the curb. No one is allowed to get out of their cars when they are in the pull through lane. A parent volunteer will direct traffic in the lot. A staff duty will direct the pedestrians in the yellow striped area when to cross the street. Pedestrians should not be crossing the street in front of the pull through lane or the line of cars exiting the parking lot. A request has been made to Maintenance and Operations to restripe the parking lot to better indicate where the pedestrian crossing is located. It is important to listen to those on duty in the parking lot so that everyone stays safe. I appreciate your cooperation with these very important procedures. Mrs. Harper, Principal
