~ Safety ~


Attention All Students

Students need to cross at the stoplight at Gross Point and Kenton if they would like to go to Culvers.

It is very dangerous to cross in the middle of Gross Point without a stoplight and crosswalk. 

 

Student Safety

Parent’s when you drop off or pick up your child, please do not stop your vehicle on Kenton or the entrance of the driveways (while on Kenton) as this poses a serious safety concern for your student as well as others in the immediate area. Please use the parent drive to drop off and pick up your student from school.
