Important Information for Parents and Students

Reminder: There is a 15 MPH speed limit in all housing areas on base. When dropping off students, please do so at the carpool lane on Magnolia Boulevard rather than in the circle at the school's front entrance. After dropping off your student, please proceed to the end of Magnolia and follow the circle around in order to turn around. Do not turn around in the parking area adjacent to the drop-off lane or at the crosswalk. Thank you for making every effort to keep our children safe.
