We will be making a change to our morning drop-off and afternoon pick-ups in the back of our school. During the early morning and afternoon (7:50 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.), when you leave the parking lot, you will only be allowed to turn RIGHT onto Clinton Street. We have noticed significant back-ups during the morning and afternoon rush, and we are concerned for the safety of everyone. We hope that by making this small change traffic will move smoother and more efficiently. We expect to have a sign posted soon as a reminder. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
