SAFETY, SAFETY, SAFETY – PARKING, PICK UP, AND DROP-OFFThis is a WALKING SCHOOL. Encourage your children to walk to school. Fewer cars means fewer traffic problems. Studies show that students who exercise before school have more energy and an easier time paying attention. Walking is good for everyone!If you must drive your child, choose a less hectic meeting place. North of the school there is a long strip on Mandalay with no street crossings. To the South there is the church parking lot on Independence, with a crossing guard to secure the safety of your children. NO PARKING in the pick-up/drop-off area. That means no double parking, too! Take advantage of the pick-up/drop-off area in the main parking lot to avoid the gridlock in the circular driveway in front of the school.The Mayor's office designated our school a “No Idling Zone.” Improve our air quality and traffic problem at the same time. Turn off your car.
