Week of April 17th – April 21st

A Note from Ms. Sickler

A few reminders that we need everyone to follow to keep all Harvest Hornets safe.  Thank you for everyone working together to ensure our pick-up loop runs smoothly in the morning and afternoon.

    • Do not leave your car unattended at anytime in the pick-up loop or the drive into and out of the school!
    • A student may not walk into the pick-up loop to enter a vehicle.  They may only enter the vehicle at the curb and enter on the passenger side of the car.
    • The pick-up loop is a single loop, DO NOT wait two abreast and have your child walk between cars to your car on the inside lane.  This land at the end of the day is only for cars moving out of the pick-up line to exit the parking lot.
    • DO NOT use the bus loop to pick up your child or park your car, the buses will block you in.
