Because of our new bus line-up location behind the cafeteria, we will need to receive ALL after school transportation messages by 3:30pm in order to assure students receive them. All parent pick-up will be in front of elementary. No vehicles will be allowed in the bus line-up area.
Construction/renovation on the gymnasium will start in September so use extreme caution in the area in front of the gym.
Please do not use the entrances by the bus barn to come to any of the HS or JH building. Pre-K and KG parents only and leave by the main entrance in front.
Student who drive to school should park in back around the rim from the storage building towards the SB field entrance. Overflow goes out to the SB west lot.
Due to the construction on the gymnasium, using the west entrance by the elementary building should offer less congestion and reduce risk to our students.
All pickups and drop offs grades 1-12 will be in front of the Elementary Building. Buses will be coming and going at the rear of the cafeteria.
