Car Rider Line
Thank you to our amazing families for helping to keep our students and staff safe at morning drop off and afternoon pickup! We appreciate your patience and for following the line as it moves forward. 🙂
Just a reminder, please drive down and go around the block to get in the line. Please help us by respecting our school neighbors by not pulling into their driveways to turn around or make U-Turns in the street. Thank you so much! 🙂
