Parking Lot – Visiting Campus

Thank you for observing super slow speeds and driving through the parking lots with extreme caution as we aim to protect our sweet kiddos and families.

Please remember that we do share a building with 2 other schools and have several families who are in need of the handicapped parking spaces on the sides of the building closest to the doors. It is critical that we keep these spaces free for them at all times. If you park on campus, please always use the spaces within the lot, itself.
