Parking Lot Rules

Dear School Community,

We would like to thank all parents, students and staff for their support for our safety days last week! It is great to see so many volunteers who are willing to donate their time to help improve the safety of our preschoolers and students.

We worked together to remind all drivers of our DSW parking lot rules. Unfortunately, there are still several drivers dropping off and picking up students who are not familiar with the rules. Therefore, we would like to urge you to please make sure that all drivers who drive your child(ren) to and from school  read and adhere to these rules: Parking and Traffic Rules

Drop-off and pick-up times will flow much better and it will be a considerably safer for all children.

With best wishes for your health and safety,

The Health & Safety Committee
