Only the front parking lot is permissible for dropping off and picking up students. No dropping off or picking up along the yellow curb to allow for school bus parking. Please do not stop your car by the red curb. Do not block the driveways and follow all parking laws. Please ensure the safety of all students by making sure that your child(ren) crosses the street within the designated crosswalk.

If you will be picking your child up after 2:40 pm, please ask him/her to wait for you in in the front parking lot. Students are not allowed to be on campus in unsupervised activities after 2:40 pm.

The school's main concern is for the health and safety of your children.  Students can be picked up or dropped off by the Gold Coast and Black Mountain gate.


Bicycles, scooters, skateboards, etc.
