During morning drop-off or afternoon pick-up, please remember that there should not be any activity on Dolores Street. There have been instances of activity, and they create dangerous situations. The only area where students may enter or exit a vehicle is on the south side of 19th Street, alongside 601. Speaking of 19th Street, it can get backed up a bit during our most active times, but please be patient and do not try to “swing around” other cars dropping off or picking up.
Also, please help us be good neighbors! We have received notices from neighbors on 19th, Dolores, and Cumberland Streets of blocked driveways or other challenging situations. Please help us by being mindful of and courteous to them. We want to be sure that we maintain positive relationships with them. We appreciate your efforts in helping us achieve this. Thank you in advance!
The Mid-Trimester is Upon Us!
This week marks the middle of the third trimester. On Friday, advisors will be sending out any updates from your student’s teachers to let you know about any outstanding challenges or successes. As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the subject-specific teacher or, for more general questions, your child’s advisor.
