 Drop-off/Pick-Up Procedures:  All 1st through 5th grade students should be dropped off and picked up at the circular drive on Alice Drive. Prekindergarten and kindergarten students should be dropped off and picked up at the circular drive on Miller Road. Parents who need to park to enter the school building are asked to park in the parking lots in front of the school. The parking lot at Westminster Presbyterian Church may also be used if additional parking is needed. For safety reasons, parents are asked not to drop off a child on Reynolds Road, at the sidewalk, in the staff parking lot, or behind the school. We ask that all parents and students utilize our sidewalks at all times and do not walk through the traffic flow.
