Reminder to parents in the morning drop-off line students should be ready to exit the car as soon as you are in the front of the school. This insures that our line continues to move quickly. If you cannot move quickly through the line we ask that you park in a parking space until your child is ready. Thank you for thinking of others in the line behind you.
