Morning Drop-off
Please be aware that drop off in the morning is intended to be a quick process.  We ask that your child is ready to exit the vehicle with his/her backpack, lunchbox, etc.    Parents should not be putting their cars in “park” and getting out to get children settled.  If your child requires more attention at drop off, please park in the back parking lot (not the small one at the front of the school) and walk him/ her to the door.
Students arriving at school after 7:35am will be considered tardy. Please plan accordingly, as there is a lot of traffic in the morning.
