One Call Scheduled for 4:00pm

Good afternoon everyone, 

Thank you for your continued patience as we put the final touches on our arrival and dismissal procedures. A few reminders: 

1. Ellett Road continues to be the easiest option for leaving school grounds. There is much less traffic so please consider using it. 

2. When pulling in from Main Street, please remember that the right-hand side lane is for right turns only and the left-hand side lane is for thru traffic to drop in front of the middle school.

3. The drive immediately in front of the middle school lot is now a two way drive. Please note the new traffic signs as well. 

Lastly, please remember that no students may be left on school grounds after 2:50pm without supervision. If you are unable to get here by 2:50pm, please apply to our Latchkey program. 

Have a great weekend!
