Drop Off Reminders

WELCOME BACK!  As you begin to plan for the first couple of weeks of school, it is important to review our Drop Of Procedures.

Reminders

 We will once again close off a small portion of 7th Avenue directly in front of the building before (8:15 – 8:30) and after school (2:45 – 3:10 or until the bus leaves the loading area). No cars are allowed to park in this area. This is only re enforcing the two signs posted on the east side of the street.
 
Here are your options for dropping off or picking up your child:
 
  • Parents can park on 7th Avenue outside of this restricted area and wait for staff to remove the safety barricades
  • 49th street is open & it is strongly recommended that parents that have to immediately leave after drop off or pick up park here
  • The 600 block of 7th Avenue is open and we have a staff member and student patrol posted on the corner each day to help children cross 49th street safely
  • 8th Avenue is open at all times of the school day
