Parent Safety Ambassadors Still Needed

Thank you for your cooperation with the new process for traffic flow. Here are a few reminders to ensure safety for all families:
  • Make sure that all students are entering and exiting the vehicle on the curb side.
  • You can wait in your car in the pick-up lane until your child arrives, however if families behind you are prepared to leave before you - you may be asked to circle around and re-enter the pick-up lane.
  • If the pick-up lane is full, please circle around to re-enter or park in the south end of the YMCA lot to wait a bit, or walk over for pick-up.
  • Please use the cross-walk! The safety patrol works really hard to ensure that all walkers are safe and enjoy when you utilize their service!
TPES Parents are still for Tuesday morning to join the Parent Safety Patrol to complement the work of the TPES Student Safety Patrol!

For more information, please contact Patty Shomo.
