You asked and we listened. We spent the morning working on a plan that will meet the needs and concerns of parents. I have attached an updated map. As you will see we will return to State Street to line up for the car line and enter the circle drive at the west entrance. As you exit the circle drive you will have a left only turn (this is to decrease the congestion with the walk-up/pick-up parents. Here is my request: Please follow all staff member instructions. I have worked to address your concerns and ask that in return you help our staff by following the procedures (no line cutting) and maintain appropriate language and gestures at all times. Please know that I appreciate everyone who came to me with opinions and concerns. The walk-up/pick-up procedure did not change. Those students will be on the Merchant end of the sidewalk waiting for parents to come get them.
There will be a Supper with Santa on December 14th from 6-8pm. This will have a pancake supper along with sausage. There will be opportunities to do crafts, have a books read, drink hot chocolate, and even a chance to get a picture with Santa himself.
