Please remember that car riders must be dropped off and picked up at the back of the school. All cars must enter the access road off Highway 431 and proceed to Gaither Drive. For safety purposes, everyone needs to have a car rider tag visible while in the car rider line. 

Car Rider Procedures

Car Rider Reminders

 -Make sure the car rider hang tag is visible. 
-Keep your hang tag visible at all times.
-Pull into the lane that will allow your child to load from the center.

These reminders not only keep students safe, but they will help us move the line more efficiently.
