Many of our students that do not live within walking distance of our school are bussed each morning and afternoon. Those students that live closer are always encouraged to walk or ride a bike. If you choose to drive your child, please be aware of the following rules:
- The bus loop is ONE lane, no passing permitted
- Pull your car as far forward as possible before unloading students
- Students are only permitted to exit from the right side (passenger side) of the car
- Drivers MUST NOT leave their car unattended
- No parking in the bus loop at any time
- Once you drop off your child, please follow the flow of cars and do not sit to watch
- Follow the directions of teachers on duty
We understand that parents are in a rush in the morning, but safety is paramount.Please do not drop children off on the road in front of the school where they need to cross traffic. Thank you for your cooperation.
It is very important that we know when you and your family are moving. These numbers help us better plan our instructional program for the year and beyond. Our board has begun the process of looking at next year’s student projections which determines a variety of things in the school such as class size. If you know you will be leaving our school boundaries, please call the office. Thank you!
