Construction Update -- Parking Lot Procedures for Elementary and Middle School Parents

Due to the ongoing construction of the new elementary playground and the new North Campus parking lot, the following procedures will be followed.

The north lot (that you enter from the bank) will be used for elementary student drop off and pick up as it was last year. However, parking will not be permitted at any time in the north lot. Vehicles should enter and exit through the bank lot and follow the directional arrows as has been the procedure in the past. Middle school students should continue to be dropped off and picked up at the unloading/loading zone in the south parking lot.

Parking is available in the south lot of the middle school or in the gravel lot directly across from the middle school entrance. For your convenience, you may enter the building through the middle school.

We understand that these arrangements will be inconvenient for some, but please keep in mind that they have been made in an effort to insure the utmost safety for our students. Please be on the listen/look out for permanent pick up/drop off and parking plans as construction finishes up in the near future
