A Gentle, Friendly Reminder Regarding Drop Off Procedure
The craziness of mornings can often lead to doing whatever you need to do to get your child(ren) to school on time! Often times there is quite a backup in the morning drop off line, which can cause frustration and at times aggravation. To avoid being the source of such emotions, please review the following guidelines for proper use of the drop off line:

  • Please note that traffic in the school driveway is ONE WAY. All traffic will use the driveway entrance closest to the school building. All students are to be dropped off at the MAIN ENTRANCE of the school and report directly to their classrooms.
  • No one is to park in the driveway, or near the school building or crosswalk at anytime during drop-off.
  • If parents have business in the office, or wish to walk their child(ren) to the lobby, they must park their cars in the side parking lot.
Our school uniform Swap Shop is bursting at the seams! With a seasonal shift arriving soon, please visit the swap shop for all of your uniform needs. There are plenty of long sleeved shirts, turtle necks and more... before you buy new, check out what we have to offer!
More details coming soon!
