If you drive your child/children to school in the morning,


I encourage you to use our “Stop, Drop and Go” procedure.


If you choose to use “Stop Drop and Go”,


it is imperative that you follow the


following SAFETY procedures listed below:




No Parking on Genesee Avenue in front of the school.



No Parking on Augusta Avenue iCLOSED between
7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. to ALL traffic for School Buses



Pull up to Staff and Parent Volunteers and they


will let the children out of the car.



PLEASE stay in your car.



Please do not cut in the drop-off line.




Please DO NOT double park to let your child out of the car.


This is a major safety hazard for your child.


Once your child has exited the car, please drive off.




Our school safety agents are posted at the entrances of our main and annex buildings watching children entering school.



If you would like to watch your child enter the school building,


please find a safe parking spot and walk them to the door.
