Drop off Reminder
As we settle into the year please remember some basic considerations when dropping children off in the morning. If everyone can follow the same guidelines, it makes drop-off much smoother and prevents backups, which can be substantial at times.
1. DO NOT get out of your car. The drop off circle is for dropping off only. If you need to exit your car for any reason, please use the visitor spots in the parking lot.
2. Pull all the way forward. It's a pretty big circle, and it can handle 8-10 cars at the curb at once. But if the front car stops in front of the school entrance, that prevents at least 4 cars from approaching the curb behind you. Please be considerate of others and pull all the way forward.
3. Be safe! When you are pulling around folks on the left who are dropping their children, please drive very cautiously. Watch for opening doors or kids who decide to take the long way around their own car!
4. At the exit from the parking lot, please clearly select the left-hand or right-hand turning lane. Folks who approach the exit at an angle prevent those behind from turning, which can cause a backup that snakes all the way through the drop-off circle.
Much thanks for your efforts to keep drop off safe and speedy!
Walking for Wisdom
We will begin our Walking for Wisdom program next Tuesday morning, September 11. For those of you unfamiliar with our walking program, on Tuesday mornings, weather permitting, the entire school takes a lap (or more) around our walking path. Students go directly from the buses or cars to the upper field to walk. Parents who are dropping their children off should drop them off in front of the school, as usual, and students can walk on the sidewalk in front of the school to the field. Do not drop them in the circle near the playground, as that will interfere with bus drop-off. Parents are welcome to join their children on the walk, but please park only in the designated visitor spots across from the front of the school. Also, make sure your child wears "walking shoes" on Tuesdays!
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the front office.
