PARKING LOT SAFETY
Parents, please remember the speed limit on our parking lot is 5 mph at all times. When dropping off please pull all the way down to the second crosswalk at the back of the gym. Please do not drive around to the School Office or to a classroom through either one of the rear exits. Children are not expecting cars to be driven on the parking lot during the school day. All parents should park out front and walk in to the School Office. This is for the safety of all our children. Thank you!
According to our policy in the Student Handbook students who are ill or have a fever are not permitted to attend class and should not be brought to school. A child who wakes up with a fever and is given Tylenol is still a sick child. Please do not send your child to school within a 24 hour period of fever, vomiting or diarrhea. No student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be allowed to remain in school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
