Since the weather has gotten colder, we have an influx of cars in the parent loop. Just a reminder (from the handbook) that we have procedures for drop-off to ensure safety. If we all work together and follow the same procedures, drop off will move faster and we can keep everyone safe. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. Please see the excerpt from the handbook about the procedures: Arrival Procedures -Please arrive at school between 7:15 and 7:35 a.m. Arriving at 7:40 a.m. or after greatly increases your child(ren)’s chances of being tardy for school. Students must be seated in their classrooms by 7:45 a.m. to not be counted tardy for school. Front Parking Lot: -Park in a parking space and escort your child(ren) to the front lobby. The front parking lot is NOT a drop-off zone. -Use the indicated cross-walk between the parking lot and front of the building when escorting your child(ren) to the front lobby. Drop-Off Area along Gerspacher Road: -This is a drop-off zone only. Cars cannot be parked in the drop-off area. -Have your child(ren) exit the car on the passenger side only. -Make sure your child(ren) are ready to exit your car when you come to a stop. Children should have all book bags, lunch bags, etc., in hand and ready to go as soon as you are in the loading/unloading zone (all down the drive along poles). -Please do NOT have them wait for the first spot...10 cars can exit at once. -All cars must follow along the parking posts on the right side. -Pull forward as soon as possible. Thank you!
