arc-safety-first-1Please help us keep our students safe by following traffic rules. There is NO student drop off or pick up on the RED curb in front of the school–this is for school buses and emergency vehicles only. Please use the white curb on Byrd Street for drop off and pick up. Please do not park in STAFF parking spots at any time. Many times teachers have gone to lunch and they cannot get to class on time because their spot is taken.
