Safety Patrols Assist With Carpool

Dear Parents,
The year is off to a great start but we do need your help. We are excited that beginning Monday, October 6, we had safety patrols in the morning and afternoon to assist with carpool. In the morning, we only have one lane open. Safety patrol students will assist your student out of the car. If you use our car pool lane, you may not exit your vehicle. You will then exit when your child has exited the car and the car in front of you has moved. You may not leave the lane to pass around another car. In the afternoon, please remember to pull all the way up so that we may load all vehicles more quickly. Once all cars in the loading section have been loaded, we will release so that the next set of cars may move up to the loading zone. Also, in the afternoon, if you are a walk-up, meaning that you park to come and pickup your child, they now exit at the bus loading zone before daycare van riders. Parents, please be sure that you have the proper method of pick-up recorded with your teacher. If there is a change, you must send in a note in writing.  Thank you for your help!
Mrs. Grove, Principal
