Morning Traffic Tips
As we start the day bright and early, ready for the morning bell at 7:50am, please utilize our Morning Stop-Drop-and-Go program coordinated by many Parent Volunteers. Please be mindful of their direction as you drive up to the school to safely drop your child off in the morning.
Traffic in the morning is one-way to the west on Sargent in front of the school. Make sure your students have their bags ready and their shoes tied so they can be assisted out of the car by our volunteers.
If you would like to walk in with your child, please find safe and legal parking in the neighborhood around the school.
