WELCOME AND WELCOME BACK!

It is a Minimum Day. School Ends at 1:25 p.m.
HOW TO DROP OFF AND PICK UP
Drive around the school in a clockwise direction.
Drop in the designated areas on Lawrence and on Norvell.
It is very helpful to have your student seated on the PASSENGER side
of the vehicle for a safer and more efficient drop off.
Do not drop or pick up in front of the school.
The front is reserved for busses only.
R-E-S-P-E-C-T THE NEIGHBORHOOD
We are located in a residential neighborhood.
Please exercise the utmost care when visiting.
Please observe all traffic rules and regulations.
Please refrain from illegal U-turns double-parking, never block a driveway…..even for a minute…
Please, if you can, park your car a few blocks away and walk in to the campus.
It helps to alleviate some of the congestion.
Our neighbors thank you!
