New Parking Procedures This Year!
With demolition of the north end of the school building, and construction of the new building about to begin, we need to wait to layout our parking plans.  Please check upcoming issues of the School Bulletin and the Weekly E-Letter for updates on parking procedures.
Arrival: When you drive in, you’ll receive your parking instructions and pizza coupons. Be sure to arrive before the parking lot closes! The gym will remain unlocked for bathrooms.
Costume Parade: Trunk ‘r Treat festivities begin with a costume parade where kids will march around the parking lot. Cheer all the kids on as they parade by. Our costume judges will be looking for unique costumes!
Popcorn & Pizza: Complimentary fresh popped popcorn will be served outside, along with your pizza order.
Fright-Free: Trunk ‘r Treat is a fun and fright-free zone so please be especially mindful that over 70% of the kids coming are age ten and under. Please choose costumes, props and masks that aren’t scary or gory.
