Staff Parking Lot on Missouri Avenue
The staff parking lot located near the front of the school on Missouri Avenue is intended for school employees only. All visitors, parent volunteers and guests are to use street parking. Furthermore, please do not use the staff parking lot to drop off or pick up your child. The staff parking lot is not intended for student traffic, as it poses a safety hazard.
School Safety and Security
As a reminder, we will implement a few changes in monitoring entrances and exits of our campus. This will take effect on January 8, 2018. We will have all entrances monitored by school staff to ensure the safety of your children/our students during arrival and dismissal times. Please be reminded that only students are permitted to enter the campus through the gates or main entrance. In the event that parents/guardians have official business with the school you are required to enter and sign in at the main entrance corridor with our staff member and indicate the purpose for your visit. Adults may not enter through the Dearborn or Victoria gates. Parent volunteers will also need to follow the same protocol of signing in and entering through the main entrance to begin volunteer work.
