Did You Know?
The school crossing guard has to be out of the white crosswalk with her sign down BEFORE any vehicles may move into the intersection. Failure to follow this law will result in a misdemeanor with a loss of three points on your driver's license, a fine up to $500, and a mandatory court date. The intent of the law is to protect the children and the crossing guard.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Parking Lot – A Safety Concern for our Children
When dropping or picking up your children at school, please remember that our children come first! If you follow a few simple rules, we can get our children to and from school safely.
When dropping off in the morning, all traffic should stay in one line. There shouldn’t be any passing on the left or right side of vehicles. Please have your children ready to exit quickly from the right side of your vehicle.
If you need to get out of the car with your child, you need to park in the parking lot and walk your child across. Do not park anywhere along the drop off lane or along the playground!
During pick-up, please make sure that you are on the look-out for children. They can dart out from between parked cars at anytime. The drop-off lane should be roped off after school. Please do not park in between the ropes and cones (even if we forget to put them out). Please do not park next to the walkways on the school grounds or the bus lanes in the back of the school.
It is also very important that you honor the crosswalk on Sheldon Road and allow the children to cross safely. Please remember to be courteous of others.
