Safety Reminder During Street Construction
Dear Parents,
Road construction on Beach Cliff Blvd. behind Kensington may cause traffic congestion during morning drop off and dismissal times. We are encouraging everyone to utilize bus transportation when possible.  When dropping off or picking up students, please utilize Kensington Road or Falmouth Street.  We have a main entrance at the east gym door and south bus loop entrance.  Crosswalks are the safest areas for students to cross.

Dropping off or picking up children on the school side of the street is safest.  If you are dropping off or picking your child from the opposite side of these streets, we are encouraging parents to escort students across the street for student safety.
