Family Update – March 4th

Dear Daniel Bagley Families,

Traffic Safety

If you are using car drop off/pick up area, please help us keep our students and drivers safe with these important reminders:

  • Smooth flow on 80th – plan for your route to arrive coming east so you can turn right into the lot; if you are coming heading west please don’t wait to turn left onto oncoming traffic. That causes a line that impacts the safety of the cross walk on Stone.
  • As you are leaving the parking lot TURN RIGHT ONLY– and leave space in the driveway for incoming cars
  • In the afternoons another option that is recommended is to legally park on neighborhood streets and walk to pick up your child.

Devices can Stay at School

As the chance of needing to go remote decreases, we are no longer asking students to transport iPad, laptops between school and home.
