Student drop off is not permitted in the first parking lot near the front of the school. Many students are being dropped
off in the morning for convenience and are crossing the crosswalk without adult supervision. In addition, parents are
using the handicap parking spaces for this purpose. Several parents have received a $250 ticket for parking illegally.
For the safety of all students, please follow the car circle and drop your child off curb side. The first parking lot is for
staff members and handicap parking. All parents and visitors, who wish to park, should use the second parking lot.
Thank you for your cooperation.
