AFTERNOON CAR POOL DISMISSAL
Families, pick up is going GREAT and thank you for working with us on our new elementary dismissal procedures. Just a reminder, to make pick up even more efficient, when you are leaving the parking lot from pick-up, please turn right onto Pat Booker Road to help keep the dismissal line moving. If you must turn left onto Pat Booker Road, we ask that you circle around behind Patio Café and exit the school from the other side of the parking lot.
PARKING LOT SPEEDING
Parents, we are still seeing and having reports of speeding in our parking lot. If we see a car speeding a picture will be taken of the car and the person driving will be contacted. We are asking if you witness a car speeding through the parking lot and you are able to SAFELY take a picture, please do so and then forward the picture to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The speeding issue is something that must stop before someone is seriously injured. Thank you for helping us keep the FBA parking lots safe for our students and families.
