If it is necessary to drive it is highly recommended that parents park in the parking lot at the city park or park along Nicholson Drive behind the school. Parents may legally park there and walk their children to and from the school yard.</p><p> </p><p>Parking Lot:</p><ul><li>Parents may drop off their children at the Kiss and Ride but may not park there</li><li>Once buses are in, cars will not be able to get out of the Kiss and Ride or parking lot until the buses have unloaded/loaded</li><li>Kindergarten children may be dropped at the Kiss and Ride to a blue vest teacher who will walk them around to the supervised kindergarten area</li></ul><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>For the start of the year, parents are welcome to walk their children around to the kindergarten yard (marked with pylons) to the supervising staff.
