A quick instruction guide to parking lot etiquette to ensure lines of cars flow efficiently and safety remains top priority; please follow these traffic tips:
  • Buses only in the lane closest to the building.
  • Drop off/pick up from the upper lot -- right lane only.
  • The left lane is only for cars driving through or to park.
  • Drop off/pick up children from the far side of the mailbox only. If your car is behind the mailbox, do not ask student to enter/exit vehicle.
  • Parents are asked to stay in their vehicle.
  • Continuously Pull Forward- do not park or let your child out if the car in front of you is moving.
  • Reserved spaces are for staff.
  • Do not pickup/drop off students in the small side lot.
  • Rockwell is an idle-free zone. Turn off your engines as you wait in pick up lane.

These tips will ensure a safe arrival/departure and an expedited process.

FROM THE LIBRARY​

Read Across America Week Celebration!
Hello Beagle families! This week we celebrate Read Across America week in the library.
Rockwell families volunteered to video record some awesome Dr. Seuss book read alouds to share with our students, staff and families.
These books are being read in many different languages. Prepare for some super cuteness and fun stories.
Check out their videos on this FlipGrid link:

 
Enjoy and Read, Read, Read!
