Sunday Greetings 

Please see the important updates/reminders for Week 2: 

Car Pick Dismissal Change – Effective on Monday, September 13 

Due to the increasing number of car pick up riders throughout week 1, we are going to ask that all car pick up numbers 200 – 299 pick their child up in the loop next to the gym. Therefore, our two loops will look like the following: 

Loop 1: Gator Gardens (1-199), PK – 1st graders and older siblings of PK-1st graders.  

Loop 2: Gym (200 – 700), 2nd – 5th graders 

Please remember that our dismissal process will begin at 2:00 PM. Our goal is to load all 350+ cars by 2:25 PM. We can do it! 

 

Arrival Reminders
In an effort to keep all of our students safe and to expedite the arrival process, all preschool families must park your car and walk your child to the door near the Gator garden. Please do not park your car in the car loop, rather in the parking lot. Please note that our car drop off time is 7:20 AM – 7:40 AM.
