Drop-Off / Pick-Up Procedure
All drivers must drop-off or pick-up students in the back (west) of the building between 6:50–7:25 a.m. and 2–2:45 p.m. This is to ensure everyone's safety. Cars are to use the entrance from Wilbur Road only. Buses use the entrance on Rt. 94. We recognize that the morning can be congested. Dropping off by 7 a.m. will help to alleviate that congestion. The building is open and students can go to the gym to sit or to cafeteria and eat. Driver cooperation is appreciated.
