- Parking/Traffic - Please drive slowly in our parking lot and driveway, and make sure you're looking forward. We watched a parent start moving last Wednesday while looking sideways at where the kids went, instead of forward where there were kids crossing. Also, if you're going to stop, please park in the gravel lot and walk over, rather than stopping the car for an extended period in the roundabout in front of the school. The congestion that results from those stops presents a safety risk for numerous students. Thanks for your cooperation.
Thank you to all who have volunteered to help hand out lunch. Please arrive at noon and report to the PAC room to help organize your classes items. If you have questions please contact Mya at firstname.lastname@example.org
