5th Grade Parents Needed!

Each month, a different grade will be asked to volunteer to keep our drop-off lanes running. Without volunteers, we will have to close the lanes. September is 5th grade month. If you are a 5th grade parent, please, please, please sign up for a day or 3 or 4. We need 4 volunteers per day!   Sign Up HERE.

Drop-off Lane Reminders

The PTA would like to remind everyone that the safety of our students, staff and families is of the utmost importance.

    • Please have your child ready to get out of the car, with their backpack, lunch, water bottle, etc. on hand.
    • If your child needs help walking to the gate or getting out of the car, please park and walk until they get more independent.
    • Everyone must exit cars on the sidewalk side.
    • Drivers must remain in their vehicle.
    • Please pull all the way up.
    • Help keep traffic moving by exiting the lane once your child is out of the vehicle.
      • Do not wait for them to reach the gate.
