Student Drop off/Pick up Safety Reminder:
Big Horn Street:
Drop off and pick up only on the north side of the street. Do not use either of the staff parking lots. All walking to and from vehicles must be done at the crosswalk at Elk and Big Horn.
Squirrel Street:
Drop off and pick up only in designated areas. If done on the south side of street, you must use the crosswalk at Squirrel and Elk.

Blocking traffic or performing U turns causes congestion and a safety issue. Please do not block driveways or use driveways for turning around as this is also a safety issue. We have a shared responsibility to maintain the highest standard of safety and we appreciate the community's collective effort and support.
