Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This is not an ordinary three day weekend!  Monday, January 21, is set aside for honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. – he is one of the greatest leaders in history. A man of faith and action, he embodied Micah 6:8, to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with God. The work Dr. King accomplished is a result of his deep love for God. Dr. King is honored on Monday because he moved with conviction and action.  He had and continues to have an incredible impact on the civil rights movement.

Kindergarten Drop-Off

Just a few reminders about Kindergarten Carpool Drop-Off:

  • Please remember to only drop off at the far south end of the parking lot, where there is supervision available to assist with unloading!
  • When students walk in between the cars it is unsafe.  It makes it difficult for other cars to see the students.
  • Please pull forward as directed by the supervisors.  This will allow more cars into the lot and off of the street.
  • Remember to turn RIGHT out of the lot and make another RIGHT onto North 195th.   When you choose to turn left at the stop sign, it causes congestion in the lot and on the street.

Thank you for partnering with us to make the morning routine safe for all of the students!
