*** The road between the baseball field and High School will be closed after school until all buses have loaded students and are leaving campus.
*** Our buses do use the same route as cars, so we ask that parents always yield to the buses and give them the right of way.
*** Only park in designated parking spaces (not in the grass).
*** Always drive with the intended flow of traffic.
*** Parents and students should not drive up the gravel road to avoid the intended pick-up line.
