New Parking Lot Procedures for 2023 - 2024

Dear Parents/Guardians,
We are excited for some new changes for the upcoming school year (2023 - 2024). We will be welcoming students and teachers from the Self Contained Support Classes at West Jordan Elementary School. There will be three support classes moving to our school. We are looking forward to having our new students, teachers, and instructional assistants. Our new students from West Jordan Elementary will be bused to our school, which means we'll need a designated bus lane. We will be making changes to our parking lot procedures to accommodate this new plan. We understand it will take some time in the beginning of the year to adapt to these new changes, but we're planning in advance to help parents plan accordingly. We are kindly requesting your patience and understanding as we adapt to our new parking lot procedures.
In preparation for buses coming to our school, we would like to share our new parking lot procedures for next year. The current drop off/pick up lane right in front of the school will be designated for school buses only. The bus lane will be blocked by cones. Teachers on duty in the morning and afternoon will remove the cones for the buses to pass. After the buses pass, the teachers will put the cones back. Our current front row parking will be removed, and it will be used for Parent Drop Off/Pick Up Only (see below). Patron parking will be on the north side of the parking lot. Faculty and Staff parking will be located on the west side of the building as well as the east side of the building. The Faculty and Staff parking on the east side of the building will be fenced to prevent students from entering into the parking lot.
Again, this will be a new change to our parking lot for next year. Our main priority is the safety of our students and that includes arriving at school and leaving school. We ask for your cooperation and support with these new changes to our parking lot.
