Parent Pick-up / Drop-off
If your child is a car rider, please plan to use the parent pick-up / drop-off lane.  Please do not park and walk up.  Our drop-off / pick-up line efficiency is approximately 10 minutes or less.

If your child is a walker and you meet them by the bike rack, please wait in the designated area.  There are "Wait Here" signs to designate areas for walkers.  All students (unless exempt), staff, and all parents / guardians must be wearing a mask on school property during arrival, the school day, and dismissal.  

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe and healthy!
