Friendly Safety Reminder
If you pick up your child after school at our Elementary building, please remember you are required to follow the pick-up procedures for the safety of our students and staff. Please remain in the pick-up line and follow the line around to the pick-up exit where the children are dismissed. The children are not permitted to walk across the parking lot to a parked vehicle without an adult. This is for the safety of our students as the parking lot is very busy during this time of the day. Students seen walking to a parked car will be asked to report to the office where they will remain until the parent/guardian picks them up. Also, we ask that you drop your child off at the drop-off area in the mornings. The buses need to be able to have full access to the main entrance.
