If it is necessary for you to pick up your child before the end of the school day, you must do so prior to 2:45 p.m.  This assists us in our efforts to keep traffic flowing smoothly.

If it is necessary for you to change your child's transportation plans, you must call the office by 2:00 p.m. to ensure that we have time to get a message to your child.

During dismissal, please enter the car line from the southbound lane of Volunteer Parkway--making a right turn onto our property as pictured below.
