Parents/children should cross at designated crosswalks.

Drivers making a left turn out of the school parking lot during times posted will be ticketed!!

Please note: The above rules apply to parents of kindergarten students too!! Kindergarten parents will no longer be able to leave their car unattended in the loading and unloading yellow or red zones.

Safety Considerations:


For the safety of your children, please obey all speed limits and traffic


laws. Use the guidelines listed in this brochure to be in compliance with

school has one, use the drop off zone to unload your children. Do not


leave your vehicle other than to assist your children in opening the door


or exiting from the vehicle. Please do not unload your children from the


traffic lane or allow them to walk between parked vehicles. If you wish


to escort small children to the school gate; find a legal parking space


(see guidelines) close to the school and walk your child. Do not cross in


the middle of the street, but walk to the nearest safe intersection or


crosswalk and follow the directions of crossing guards.
