Thank you for your patience as we make necessary changes to our car drop-off and pick-up process. Beginning on Monday, August 30, cars need to begin dropping off students on our Jordan Lane location. This is the same process as last year except that buses will not be in the car lane. Buses have now been cleared by the M & J safety officer to enter through our large main parking lot. These changes were necessary so that the main roads and our parking lot were not blocked in case of emergencies. Thank you to our families who were patient and flexible during our first two days of school. It is appreciated! 🚗🚙🚗
