Message From the Principal (Please Read!)

Drop-off & Pick-up

Please be respectful of all drivers and students during drop-off and pick-up times.   Traffic is busiest between 7:50 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.  and 2:45 p.m. – 3:25 p.m.  We ask that you practice the following to provide a safe drop off for all students.   Refer to the attached map for designated drop off areas. 

  • Pull as far forward as possible to allow other cars to enter the driveway.
  • Students should be prepared to exit the car on the curbside.
  • Check traffic before pulling away from the curb.   
  • No parking or stopping on either side of the median.   This will prevent students from crossing traffic when entering the building.  
  • Park in the south parking spaces if you need to enter the school.  Do not park along the curb or median. 
  • Establish a meeting place on Hickory for pick-up to alleviate traffic congestion. 
Important Message For Parents
All parents need to login to Family Access and update their emergency contact information.  As of January 1, 2013, all emergency contact information previously entered must be updates.
