Important Carpool Information!

If you come to school at 7:30 - YOU GET RIGHT IN - Almost NO wait time. PLEASE AIM FOR 7:30!!! NOT 7:45. PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF IN SECOND LANE WITHOUT A TEACHER OUT THERE - do not drop off before 7:15 - it is dangerous without teachers out there. No students should be crossing without an adult escort in carpool, no child should be left without adult supervision. We still have a lot of children arriving after 7:50, please try to get here earlier. They are missing important instruction! Thanks.
