 CARS AND KIDS DON’T MIX! Being a school site with almost 1,400 students, it is common for our students to be out and about before and after school. 

A few things to remember as you drop off and pick up your children each day:

  • Please keep your vehicle’s speed under 5 mph while in the car lines and parking lots.
  • Put your cell phone down and keep eyes forward to be aware of your surroundings.
  • Encourage your children to use the marked crosswalks for their own safety.
  • Never let children cross McCabe Road or Austin Road alone.  Always meet them at the car line and cross them yourself.
