News & Announcements

PA DAY – Friday September 29th


This is a message to all students and parents/guardians regarding student drop off and pick up zones– you may have noticed that we have some new yellow lines painted on our driveway and parking area.  Next week we will have our new signage installed.

Please note where your child can be dropped off and picked up safely.  Changes have been made that prioritize the safe and easy drop off and pick up of students while maintaining the ability of buses to enter the school grounds and drop off or pick up students without traffic jams occurring.

The driveway to the parking lot is now one way only. When Parents drop off students they must enter the driveway and then immediately turn to the left and pull as far up in the line as you can. The drop off zone is designated by diagonal yellow lines on the pavement.  Once the student has exited the vehicle, the car pulls forward towards the traffic lights at College and Jaynefield.

Another change is that student drop off and pick up can longer occur at the front doors to the school unless pre-approved by the office.  Special Needs buses are dropping off and picking students up in the area so no cars should be using that route for drop off or pick up.  The only car drop off zone is now at the side of the school parking lot.  We will have staff out assisting with the change in the student drop off/pick up zones.  Thanks for your cooperation in maintaining a safe school environment.
