Safety Alert!


We Can All Work Together to Keep Students Safe


Use the curb lane to drop students off. DO NOT drop students

off in the parking lot.


Park in the lot and walk your child across the crosswalk.  DO NOT

park in the fire lanes or the staff parking lot.



Turn into the lot and wait your turn in line. DO NOT skip the line and cut in front of the waiting cars. From Larch Way, DO NOT turn left into the lot. When parents are lined up on Larch Way to get into the lot, turning in front of that line is disrespectful to those waiting in line.



Turn right out of the lot and use neighborhood streets to turn around or go the direction you need. DO NOT turn left out of the lot when crossing guards are present. DO NOT make u-turns on Larch on school days.  Signs are posted and violations are illegal.



Drive slowly and carefully in the parking lot and on Larch Way.


REMEMBER, your choices are a model for your students and all other students.


Stay Healthy This Winter

There are steps to reduce the risk of getting sick, including:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
  • If you are sick, stay at home away from others
  • See your health care provided, if needed
