Please Remember

A firm reminder to all parents to respect the drop off and pick up guidelines for all students. Specifically, please refrain from using the Lower School Bus Circle unless your child has a physical impediment that requires access through those doors. A growing number of families have been using the Bus Circle, which impedes the buses from safely and efficiently dropping off students. Thank you for your help keeping traffic flowing and our students safe!

Just a reminder that you can subscribe to your Veracross household calendar and have all of your Park events go directly into your online calendar. If you're not doing this already, think about trying it this year!
