Unaccompanied Walkers/Bike Riders

Children who walk or ride bikes will be held in the media center until buses leave the school and the carpool dismissal is finished. This will help us avoid children walking or riding near moving cars

Your child’s safety is our primary focus. Please help us keep our children safe by adhering to these guidelines. NO CELL PHONE USE WHILE IN THE CARPOOL LANE, PLEASE!

 Thank you,
