  3. I drive - where can I park?

    Due to limited parking on the school property and the need to ensure that staff members have access, we ask that parents do not park on the campus during regular school hours. Street parking is available around the school.  Please review the street parking signs before parking on the street.Thank for your mindfulness and adherence to this request.
