Staff Parking Lot

This is a friendly reminder that the parking lot off of Windingwalk Street is for staff only and the turn around is for buses only.  Therefore, there should be no other cars entering that driveway before and after school.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.  By the way, thanks to everyone who is coming to school earlier.  I noticed on Tuesday the difference that the early arrivers had on traffic and school start time!  And you did that during the first week of Daylight Savings Time.  Impressive!
