Please help us to keep our front lawn attractive by you and your child(ren) either using the sidewalk or walking around the back corner of the school in the afternoon.  Do not walk across the grass, down the hill, or on the rocks. We appreciate your support as we work to respect and protect our environment.

With the continued construction, there is still NO PARKING on the North side of Rich (the school side) between the teachers’ parking lot and Oak Grove. There is NO PARKING in the teachers’ lot or the principal lot (in front of the main doors) during drop off and pick up times.

Parking is allowed on the South side of Rich Rd. and all side streets where there are NO cones. Parking is also allowed in both of the church parking lots. The church asks that you don’t walk on the grass. If you park on the South side of Rich please use the cross walk to cross Rich. Do NOT cross Rich through traffic.

The carpool line is for drop off ONLY. Adults and/or drivers are not to exit the car in the car pool line.  The student needs to exit the car where/when Safety Patrol opens the door. Please do not wait til the front of the line. The Safety Patrol students and other adults will help your student get to the correct door. If you want to walk your student to the door, you need to find a parking spot.
