    • Carpool Information

      We have another volunteer to join Mrs. Torres to help with traffic and many of you may recognize him. Mr. Tim will be stationed at the exit of our campus to help our cars make a left hand turn when leaving carpool. We do ask that when you merge back onto Buffalo Rd., please be careful and check the traffic already moving. I also want to remind you to please be attentive to both Mrs. Torres and Mr. Tim, as much as we want you and your children to be safe as you enter and leave our campus, we want them to be safe as they volunteer their time.
