  • Campus Safety

    Please abide by the car line procedures and do not pick up/drop off your child on the side street (79th St). This is a safety concern as there is a high rate of traffic on this street during arrival/dismissal times.  Additionally the street has been marked with no parking signs and we want to respect our neighbors in the surrounding community.

    *Students are only permitted on campus 30 minutes before (9:00 a.m.) and 30 minutes after (4:30 p.m.) School unless they are involved with a school sanctioned event.  There has been an increase in students arriving extremely early and being picked up late outside school hours.  This poses a safety concern as our Teachers/Staff are not on duty to supervise.  Please assist us in abiding by this request.
