safety patrolDear Parents,

  • Please remember to use the cross walk when crossing from the parking lot to the school during morning arrival and afternoon departure. Crossing through the mulched beds or through the shrubs is unsafe. The safety patrol can see neither you, nor your child, around the portico columns until you step into the actual lane of traffic. Please teach your child, by example, safety when crossing. We also have had several parents step directly in front of moving cars when leaving with their elementary children from the elementary pick up area. Please use the painted crosswalks to cross and do not walk into the traffic lane (even if a driver is slowing as they see you.) You need to cross in the designated areas.
  • Please do not park your car near the cones and exit your vehicle. If you need to exit your vehicle, or if you are dropping a family member off, but not using the drive through, please park in a designated parking space. Parking along the thoroughfare blocks other traffic and causes unsafe conditions. 
  • Please be a careful and defensive driver at all times while on school property.  Do not use your cell phones while operating your vehicles or waiting in the drive through.
  • Please make sure the safety patrol has closed your door and cleared your vehicle before accelerating. A few extra seconds of caution can prevent an accident.

Thank you for your attention to these matters. If you have any questions about the drive through process or are new to the school and would like a more in-depth explanation of how the process works please don’t hesitate to ask.

Warmest Regards,
Crystal Sorrow
Safety Patrol Supervisor
