Some important reminders:

  • When using Ward Street to drop off and pick up your students, please avoid the area by the apartments as this is a residential zone and you may receive a parking ticket. During the hours of arrival and dismissal only, the city allows us to use the area on our side of the school and across the cafeteria by the fenced parking lot. 
  • Please avoid unannounced early pick-ups as instructional time continues to be interrupted; we understand emergencies arise and we accommodate accordingly.
  • With frigid temperatures upon us, please ensure students come to school wearing a warm coat, gloves and a hat.

Thank you!
