In an effort to speed up the morning car rider drop off, we are planning to make some changes in the procedures for morning drop off.
- We will have double line drop off like in the afternoon.
- Students will need to be ready to get out of the car by themselves. Staff will be in the center of the line to make sure all students are out of the cars before they move.
- If you wish to walk your child in, you should use the bus drive and park in a parking space and walk up the sidewalk to the front door. You will still need to get a visitor’s badge. This will prevent the stop in traffic flow due to the crosswalk.
- After 7:15am there will be no parking in the front parking lot for walk in visitors.
- No parking in the cafeteria loading dock area (aka service entrance). This is congesting the flow of traffic.
- Do not let your child out in the parking areas to walk in alone.
- Please refer to the map with these instructions. We will begin these changes by closing the service entrance on Monday, August 24, 2015. The front parking lot will be closed at 7:15am starting Wednesday, August 26th. The entire process will officially begin on Friday, August 28th.
