Parking Lot Friday (10.20.17): Please be advised our East lot will be resealed on Friday. ALL students should be dropped off and picked up at the front entrances of the building--by the bus loop. During drop-off, parents are welcome to park along the front curb to walk their student into the building. During pickup, we ask parents to stop behind the orange cone in order to allow the buses to pick up and make their way around the circle. We apologize for any inconvenience!
