We have been working to make the Afternoon Pick up a much safer and smoother process for everyone. You will notice that a portion of the sidewalk curbing now has been painted red. You will also notice that parking next to the Memorial Building is now limited. You will see the cones that we have out on the street each afternoon. The reason for the cones is to create a flow of traffic that is going to the front of the cafeteria. If you are going to the cafeteria please stay between these cones and the curb. This also eliminates the cars being double parked, creating an unsafe situation for children. You will not be able to park there and all children who are being picked up, must be met at the cafeteria or by the office. It is my goal to be out there every afternoon, as much as possible to help make this work smoothly. For those of you who were picking up your students Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, I hope this worked out well for you. It seemed to me that the flow of traffic improved, and actually went faster! Thank you for your patience, and for working with us to make this time of the day safer.
There are always ways that parents can help to support and be involved in the school. We have the Ag Advisory Group under the auspices of the School Board. We are creating the new Teacher/Parent Field Trip Research and Review Committee. You can also get involved with the Parent's Guild. We are always looking for more volunteers in the classrooms. Please contact the office or talk with staff to see how you can help. It is your school, supporting your student's education, so please help us make it the absolute best that it can be.
