Drop-Off and Pick-Up
If you choose to provide transportation:
Drop-off and pick-up times can be hectic. But if we all work together, it can be a quick and efficient experience. If you would like to speak with one of the teachers, please pull into a parking space, stop into the office, and wait until after dismissal. Also, please remember to:
- Drive slowly and be aware -- precious children are everywhere.
- Doors open at 8 a.m. - Scholars must be in their classrooms/seats no later than 8:30 to avoid being marked tardy.
- Enter from the Westnedge Ave. entrance only. Exit via Lynn Ave.
- Be patient with fellow drivers.
- Stay off your cell phone.
