Please approach from the north, heading south on St. Joseph Pl., pull to the side (before gate/blacktop), let child(ren) out from the right side of vehicle and carefully exit. Please follow all traffic rules, travel slowly and cautiously, do not make u-turns, and make sure to leave the crosswalk area clear for pedestrians. Please do not park and stay in the drop off area. If you wish to park and get out, please park in the area in front of the gym (away from the crosswalk). A school staff member will be out in the front to supervise students at 7:50 a.m. If you arrive earlier than this please plan to supervise your child until 7:50 a.m. Preschool students will be dropped off in the back at the preschool entrance.
