How to Navigate the Parking Lot

If you are driving on the inside lane, please pull forward and STOP at the sign in front of the kindergarten gate. You will wait until the teacher on duty indicates that it is safe to exit left  through the outside lane.  

 

If you are driving on the outside lane, you will pull forward and wait for the teacher on duty to indicate when you may drive forward along the inside curb until there is no space between you and the car in front of you. 

 

Students are NEVER allowed to exit the car from the outside lane and cross in front of cars on the inside lane.  They are only allowed to safely exit the car once it is next to the curb.

Common Core Quick Facts!

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are a state-led effort that provide a clear, consistent understanding of what students are expected to learn to be college and career-ready.

 

They are spearheaded by two groups, the National Governor’s Association Center for Best Practices (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CSSO). The common core standards were introduced in 2010 and 45 states and 3 territories have adopted them. In 2014-15, state tests were replaced by exams designed for the common core.

 

The standards define what students should know and be able to do, not how teachers teach. Decades of literacy research should provide the framework for instructional best practices in reading, writing, speaking and listening.
