Remember that both schools are equipped with a “buzz in” and video system that require a visitor to be identified prior to admission into the building. In addition school hallways and properties are monitored by a camera and recording system according to Policy #7441.
Parents, babysitters and friends are asked to be very careful when dropping off or picking up students at either school. Please have the students exit and enter the vehicle on the proper side and always be aware that children may be cutting across traffic or between parked cars.
