Teachers are present to provide assistance at drop-off. Kindergarten children are escorted to their classes. All other students go directly to their classrooms. Please remain in your car in order to facilitate a safe drop off as well as an orderly start to the day.

Parents who also pick up older siblings at 3:00 p.m. will circle around and wait on the right lane of the circle. If you do not have an older child, you may exit the parking area immediately.
