  • If you would like to park and get out of your car, please park in a legal parking space in our parking lot. Do not park in the Handicap (unless you have proper identification) or Traveling Staff, or other marked spots. If you choose this option in the morning or afternoon, you must exit your car and walk your child to the side door in the morning and walk to pick up your child in the afternoon. When picking up in the afternoon, please let an adult on duty know that you are leaving with your child.
