Appeals Document
Dropping off and picking up our children from school can be a stressful time. It is important that we make sure that they are getting to where they need to go safely. Here are the following parking guidelines for drop off and pick up. 
  1. When dropping off or picking up in the bus loop parents must remain IN THEIR CARS at all times. This means no helping little ones with seatbelts, backpacks, or walking them to their classrooms. It is integral for safety that while in the bus loop the driver is always in the vehicle and behind the wheel. 
  2. Parking in the bus loop is also prohibited. This is a quick drop off or pick up area. If you need to park please continue to the parking lot to do so. 
  3. Children are walking through the parking lot all the time, please slow down to ensure safety.
