Your student will be called by their car number from inside the building to the curb where your car has been batched.

    3. Once all vehicles are put into park, teachers will load students into each batch.

    4. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REMAIN IN PARK UNTIL ALL STUDENTS, NOT JUST YOUR OWN, ARE LOADED AND TEACHERS CLEAR THE AREA.

    6. The right hand lane will be forced to turn right onto Bonnet upon exiting, and the left hand lane will be forced to turn left onto Bonnet. Please plan accordingly before entering the parking lot.

Please make sure your child knows which crosswalk to take (purple, gold, or white).  All bike riders should walk bikes when on school sidewalks adjacent to car traffic.

    2. If you wish to walk home with your child, these are the locations where you will meet them.  It is shown on the map with the colored circles.
