Good morning! I wanted to inform you of a couple procedures for morning drop off and after school pick up. Please read the entire message and reference both pictures to help clarify. Morning Drop Off - The lane in front of the school, along the sidewalk, is for dropping off students in a timely manner and pulling away safely. If for any reason you need to get out of your car, you will need to use the parking spaces in the parking lot, so we do not block or hold up the drop off line. Please use caution as you are driving in our parking lot, being aware of students, parents and other surroundings. After School Pick Up - If you are picking up your child after school, we need you to enter from Highway 54 onto Audrain Road 557 (indicated by the red line on the map) to pick up your child. When there is a line of cars waiting for pick up, the line will be along the new track, allowing school buses a safer opportunity to travel to and from the high school. Last year there was a lot of congestion with the pick up line and buses, which we hope to avoid. With everyone following these procedures, we create a safer environment. When you get into the parking lot, follow the car in front of you carefully and wait in line for your child to be dismissed. Once students are loaded, the cars can begin to move. Follow the car in front of you. Do not try to pass cars in front of you. Be patient and very cautious as we do not want anyone to get hurt or have an accident. When the line moves, you will exit the parking lot (indicated by the blue line on the map) by turning right onto Audrain Road 557 and then turning onto Highway P. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office.
