If you are dropping off your scholar(s) at the Beech entrance you must drive through the traffic cones and your scholar(s) must exit your vehicle in front of the middle gate (between the cafeteria and the auditorium). The same process is followed for picking up however you must give your scholar’s name to the staff member directing traffic and they will call your child out of their line to come to you therefore your scholar(s) may not wait on the front lawn (Beech Ave.) You may not instruct your scholar(s) to leave their line to meet you. If you scholar is walking home you must complete a permission to walk and file it in the front office. Permission to walk forms will be sent home the first week of school.
