Please remember the following guidelines for pick-up and drop-off: 1) Remember to talk to your children about being ready to exit the car promptly as well as to be ready to get in the car quickly and safely. Long good-byes or disorganization at loading points can set traffic patterns back. 2) Avoid high traffic times, 7:30-7:45 and 2:30-2:45, are high traffic times and many times waiting for a little bit can make your experience quicker. 3) Please respect our neighbors on Golden Gate Ct.
