TUESDAY 1:33pm DISMISSAL: Parents please be reminded that dismissal EVERY TUESDAY, is at 1:33pm so plan accordingly. The after school programs will be present and operational at this time. If your child is not participating with an After-School Program please be sure to make proper child care arrangements.
VALET DROP-OFF: We encourage all parents to please use our Valet Drop-Off on Vinton for the safest and most efficient way to drop off your children. Our excellent and polite staff are there to assist your child as they exit the vehicle and enter the school grounds. DO NOT ATTEMPT drop offs in the middle of Motor Avenue by double-parking - it puts you in danger of a ticket; it puts you and your children at risk of an accident; it is something your child will be watching and learning. Let's make good safe choices daily. To assist our Palms Parents we keep this gate open for a few extra minutes so that our late arrivals do not have to stop on Motor!
