  • New Arrival and Dismissal Route: Begins Thursday, September 16

    After much discussion and advice seeking, we will be changing our arrival and dismissal "ferry line" location. The current location, along 4th and 91st has created a hazard for walkers and local traffic.  Families will be staging twice a day, for about 30 minutes, Monday through Friday. We thank the local neighbors for their patience and grace as we make this transition.

    As a community let us remember to leave driveways clear for homeowners, drive cautiously in a school zone, and be courteous to each other and our valued crossing guards. 

    Many thanks in advance, 

    Susan Songstad, Principal

    Here is the plan.
