Parents:  Please help everyone out by following our ‘one way’ traffic pattern when dropping off students in the morning and picking up at the end of the day.  All traffic should go northbound on 45th Street and eastbound on LaSalle.  Please be courteous drivers, as everyone’s cooperation is needed to ensure safety for all.  Thank you.
