When using the drop-and-go line in the mornings, please ensure that you pay full attention when pulling back out into the flow of traffic.
* Please do not “watch” your child walking into the school while pulling out into traffic;
* Please use your blinker and take a moment to check your mirrors and surrounding area before pulling back into the road. Drivers in the street have the right of way.
There have been too many “close calls” recently and we need everyone to do their part to keep our parents and students healthy and safe.
