    The Parent-Pick-Up line has been rather long. Right now we are loading approximately 250 students each afternoon. It is going to continue to take 40-50 minutes each day with that amount of children. If you would prefer not to have to wait that long on a daily basis, we suggest you allow your child to ride the bus to and from school, if you live on one of our designated streets. Just let the teacher know of the change in writing.
