BOX TOPS



Save your Box Tops over the summer and send them into school in September.


STOP, DROP GO

If you drive your child/children to school in the morning,

I encourage you to use our “Stop, Drop and Go” procedure.

If you choose to use “Stop Drop and Go”,

it is imperative that you follow the

following SAFETY procedures listed below:

 


No Parking on Page Avenue in front of the school.

 

Academy Avenue is CLOSED between
7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. to ALL traffic.

 

Pull up to the Parent Volunteer School Safety Guards and they

will let the children out of the car.

 

PLEASE stay in your car.

 

Please do not cut in the drop-off line.

 

Please do NOT double park to let your child out of the car.

This is a major safety hazard for your child.

Once your child has exited the car, please drive off.

 

Our security guard is standing at the door watching the children enter the building.

 

If you would like to watch your child enter the school building,

please find a safe parking spot and walk them to the door.

 

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
