    Please follow the suggestions when dropping off your children in the morning to school


    1) Do not pass cars that are dropping off children. This is a very dangerous situation when students are exiting vehicles.


    2) Children should exit the car from the passenger side. Never the driver's side.


    3) If your child needs assistance leaving the vehicle, please park your vehicle.


    Let's continue to keep our students and school safe!!!

    Thanks, Mr. Jacobson
