    • Enter the main entrance to the school and follow the lane to the right of the building.  

    • Cars should line up to the left, leaving room on the right side for cars to pass.  

    • Students will come to you once dismissed, then you can continue out the back with caution to exit.

    • Now that employees are back at school, only faculty and staff should enter through or park in the back.

      • Driving students should park in the student lot - not behind the school.

      • Parents who are parking to come inside should park in the front of the school.
