 We have done some work in the front of the school, 1st and 2nd quads. The work is nearly complete.  PLEASE NOTE:  the front drop off area has now been converted to a true round-a-bout!  PLEASE do not stop in the center section of the driveway to drop-off or pick-up students.  Pull to the left or right curb sides only.  The center area of the round-a-bout is for thru traffic only.  For District Office access, you must come through the round-a-bout and turn right at the end of the MPR and go through the gate.  In addition, you can park and wait in the "cell phone" lot which is between the round-a-bout and the lower student parking lot while waiting for your child.  There are 24 spaces there and it has easy access out.  Temporary signs will be out for the first part of school and permanent signage will be installed late September.
