    • Parents stay in car
    • Students exit at the front door (DO NOT exit car until you are in front of school)
    • Must exit passenger side
    • Exit parking lot immediately following the car in front of you (do not pass car in front of you)
    • When entering the parking lot follow the one way sign ALWAYS
    • Below zero enter front door otherwise students walk to their classroom lines
    • Drop and go begins at 8:20
    • Please remember these guidelines are in place for the safety of the children.
    • PLEASE remember you cannot pass a bus with its stop sign out.  This is very important!!
    • As a help to our teachers please do not wait in parking spaces as staff are finding it difficult to find a spot in the lot on many mornings.

    Thank you for helping to make our drop and go process smooth and safe for all.
