CCDS Drop Off and Pick Up Guidelines

Dear Parents,

Thank you all very much for your cooperation with our recent drop off and pick up procedure changes.  We have noticed that parking on the side lot in the morning can prove cumbersome with small children, backpacks etc…. Therefore, faculty and staff will park toward the back leaving the front portion of the side lot open for you.  

    NOTE: The side lot is ONE WAY ONLY.   

Also, a reminder that your family name card MUST be visible in the front window of your car at afternoon car line.

Thank you!

Please check the school calendar for any dates that your child will not be in need of a school lunch. There will be no reimbursements for any orders past the deadline date.
