PARKING AND TRAFFIC INFORMATION
Due to the construction of the traffic circle at the intersection of Joes Lake Road and South Post Road, along with construction at the current K-2 Campus, there will be staggered arrival and dismissal times for both campuses. This situation will necessitate some changes in procedures at both campuses to make the traffic flow smoother and to keep students and parents safe. Please see Staggered Arrival and Dismissal for more information and details about traffic for the upcoming school year.
We have 15-minute parking in front of the school, and longer-term parking on the sides of the middle/high school building; please do not park in the grass.
