Drop Off and Pick Up Reminder

As you get back into your daily drop-off and pick-up routines, we ask that you remember the following at arrival and dismissal from school and Afterschool:

  • Leave a free passage on the sidewalk in front of the school
  • Pull your car up to the curb
  • Turn off your engine
  • Do not double park or block the street

Thank you for helping make this daily routine a smooth process for our school community and our neighbors on West 85th Street.
