Student Arrival Entrances

All students should enter the building from the Library Door Entrances or the Main Foyer entrance. All other entrances will not be accessible unless there is a student need.

Parent Pick Up and Drop Off

This year to alleviate traffic concerns we are implementing a new drop-off protocol. All student pick/drop-off will be at the West Courtyard by the library entrance in the morning and in the afternoon. Spaces will be labeled where parents/caregivers can park for an afternoon pick-up. No one should be parking in the fire lane loop in front of the school. That lane is for emergency purposes only and the curb is marked with yellow paint.
