As the weather is getting colder, our kiss and ride is becoming increasingly busy. Please take a moment to review the following etiquette:
-Close the gap -move up along the curbside prior to stopping to unload.
-Unloading -have passengers unload curbside.
-Be Ready -have your child(ren) ready with their backpack before stopping to unload.
-No Parking -vehicles cannot be left unattended.
-Arrival Time -there is much less congestion at 8:40 a.m., rather than after 8:50 a.m., so arriving at 8:40 a.m. will alleviate traffic and improve efficiency in the loop.
-Going Green -parents are encouraged to walk to school with their child(ren).
-Alternate Drop off -driving and dropping off close to the school and walking will save time and reduce congestion.
As a reminder, safety is paramount, so please be extra cautious while driving in our school community.
