NEW BCI / BACKGROUND CHECK POLICY
All parent volunteers at the school are required to have a background check completed before they may participate. To obtain BCI, you can contact the main office directly at 710-7500, option 2, option 6 or save time and visit our table at Back to School night!

DANCE TRAFFIC DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP POLICY:

 Please note pattern is different for dances!!      Drop off: Students should be dropped off at the back entrance to the school - all parents are to enter the first driveway and follow the one-way pattern toward the back of the school.   Pick up: Students will exit at the back entrance of the school - all parents are to enter the first driveway and follow the one-way pattern toward the back of the school and continue into the parking lot in the back of the school. Each driver should pull into the individual parking spaces and face the school building; parking spaces along the perimeter of the parking lot should be backed into so drivers are facing into the parking lot and able to drive out of each parking space so no one has to back out of a parking space. Students will exit the building and go to their parents/designated drivers' cars.

Parents, who do not make it into the parking lot, will be directed to pull up to the cones in the driveway. Please form two lanes of traffic on the road (around the school) as you follow the road to the rear of the building - no one will be allowed to park "at the door". All cars will park in the parking lot and/or road to pick up your children. All students will be directed to the parking lot and road when it is safe to do so. You are welcome to get out of your car to meet your children in the school yard by the rear door of the building and escort them to your cars.

Once most of the cars are loaded with students, the police officer will direct all cars to exit the road and parking lot continuing in the same direction all the way around the school and exit through the second driveway.  Signs will be posted and a police officer will direct traffic as well as PTO members who will be assisting with the direction of the traffic and the students.  Please do not park on Route 102 (state highway)or Rustic Hill Road as this poses a danger to students, you, and others using Route 102. Any student who leaves the pavement to find parents in the driveway or road will be restricted from the next dance.  As always, your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated as we work to assure both convenience and safety at the end of our dances.
