We again thank all parents for their cooperation with our new procedures. If you have a different person pick up your child, please inform them of the procedures. When you arrive at school, please join the line on Market Street. Occasionally, parents will enter the parking lot off Mill Street pulling ahead of others. As we move into cooler days and inclement weather, please inform the office if your child will be a car rider as opposed to a walker. The bus drivers continue to comment on the ease of dismissal with less traffic on Mill Street.
