Car Line Policy

car
 
Effective for the current school year, car line traffic will be allowed on campus beginning at 2:45 PM. In the past our car line would begin lining up at the water tower. Since that is a city street, this will no longer be allowed. These changes are to ensure the safest possible environment for our students. Thank you for your cooperation!
