Update on traffic patterns: In order to accommodate the flow of traffic and number of cars on Avenue R-4, we ask everyone dropping-off and picking-up students to enter from the exit gate and exit through the entrance gate. As you enter through the exit gate please drive around the back of the Church and hall towards the TK & Kinder classes. Those of you picking- up & dropping-off TK/Kinder students will remain on the left side and those of you picking-up & dropping off 1st-8th grade students will remain on the right side headed towards the playground. School staff will be outside to help guide traffic. This will be the new traffic pattern until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation.
