Caution
PLEASE DO NOT park on the street and walk to the front of the building to walk your child to the school. The car line is meant for children who have cars that will be driving to the front of the building. This slows the car line down and creates an unsafe situation for our students. Please wait in line on Connecticut Avenue and drive to the front of the building if you come to school in a car at arrival time
