Change In Drop Off/Pick Up Procedures

To enhance the safety of our school community, we are amending our pick up and drop off procedures. Students who are being picked up at the end of the day / or dropped off in the morning at the Middle/High School should do so at the West end of the building - also known as the area by the tennis courts (going up toward Bennett School).   After dropping off or picking up students at the West end, please proceed out through the tennis court parking area, and around to Route 28.
