Parking Lot Construction

Work has begun on the construction of 36 new parking spaces and the eventual paving of the car rider line.  We are excited about this big project!

You will see construction equipment and workers for the foreseeable future.  The driveway in front of building eight (next to the fire rescue building) will be completely closed and barricaded.  The car rider line and front driveway will not be affected.

Please help us keep everyone safe by not dropping your child off in the front parking lot.  All students that arrive or dismiss by car should go through the car rider line.  If you want to walk your child to the front gate, please park in a designated space.  We understand parking is limited, and we thank you for your patience as we work to expand our parking lot to accommodate families and staff members.
