    Most students walk to and from school. Please be patient with picking up your children, follow the directions of the adults directing traffic and be assured that you will get out of the parking lot in 10-15 minutes.  Stay in your car and follow in one of the three lanes. Once you get to the front of the school office, the supervising adults will bring your child to the car.


    If you allow your child to ride a bicycle, make sure he/she uses a helmet and has a chain and lock to secure the bicycle in our designated area.
