Parking Lot Safety

PLEASE SLOW DOWN!!!

The safety of all our children is a concern.

We have 2 designated crosswalks in our Drop Off Zone; one at the North End and one at the South End of the parking lot. We ask that you do not drop your children off and let them walk in between the crosswalks; they are to use the designated crosswalks. And please drive SLOWLY and watch for children. 

The Muir Lake Hall parking lot is also a designated drop off zone for our students, please watch for children walking to and from that area as well.

Thank you for your continued cooperation and concern for all of our students.
