Parents, Relatives, and Guardians:

Please note that there is NO PARKING on the School Playground between the hours of 8:00 AM and 1:30 PM effective immediately. 

If you come to school between the hours of 8:00 AM and 1:30 PM, you will have to park on the street.

The playground is open for parking to drop off students before 8:00 AM, and is open again after 1:30 PM to pick up students. However, you must stay behind the cones.

We are doing this in an effort to increase the safety of children on our campus. Thank you for your cooperation.
