Parking Update

We need your help.  Due to a close call with a student’s safety yesterday, Public Safety has recommended that we close the gravel parking lot at the bus entrance until 8:00 a.m.   Starting Monday, only buses & employee vehicles will be allowed at the bus entrance.  All other vehicles should use the auto entrance.  We will also have an officer monitoring the bus entrance on various mornings to help keep students safe.  The role of our crossing guard is to help students & parents cross the road safely – not to direct traffic.  Also, please use the crosswalks.  Thank you in advance for your help with this safety issue.

 A list of the 2013 National Blue Ribbon Schools is available at http://www.ed.gov/nationalblueribbonschools.

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan today recognized 286 schools as the 2013 cohort of National Blue Ribbon Schools, based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in improving student academic achievement. Secretary Duncan made this year’s announcement live via the Department's USTREAM channel http://www.ustream.tv/channel/education-department, viewed by recognized principals, teachers, and students assembled across the country. 

The Department will honor 236 public and 50 private schools at a recognition ceremony on Nov. 18-19 in Washington, D.C. In its 31-year history, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed this coveted award on nearly 7,500 of America’s schools.

“Excellence in education matters and we should honor the schools that are leading the way to prepare students for success in college and careers,” said Secretary Duncan. “National Blue Ribbon schools represent examples of educational excellence, and their work reflects the belief that every child in America deserves a world-class education.”  

The National Blue Ribbon Schools award honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students perform at very high levels or where significant improvements are being made in students’ levels of achievement.

The program recognizes schools in one of two performance categories. The first category is “Exemplary High Performing,” in which schools are recognized among their state’s highest performing schools, as measured by state assessments or nationally-normed tests. The second category is “Exemplary Improving,” in which schools that have at least 40 percent of their students from disadvantaged backgrounds demonstrate the most progress in improving student achievement levels as measured by state assessments or nationally-normed tests.

To select National Blue Ribbon Schools, the Department requested nominations from the top education official in every state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Department of Defense Education Activity, and the Bureau of Indian Education. The Council for American Private Education (CAPE) nominates private schools. A total of 420 schools nationwide may be nominated, with allocations determined by the numbers of K-12 students and schools in each jurisdiction. The Secretary of Education invites nominated schools to submit an application for possible recognition as a National Blue Ribbon School.

Fire Lane Safety

Per the Fire Marshall's Office, no one is allowed to park in a Fire Lane, whether there is a driver in the vehicle or not, at any time other than the following:

  • 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day and 30 minutes after the end of the school day (this does not include the After School Program nor any other activity at the school)
  • passengers actively loading or unloading during the day (this would cover students unloading in the morning at the beginning of the school day)

The only time a vehicle would be allowed in a Fire Lane would be to actively drop-off and/or pick-up a student when there is no waiting.  Other times, such as After School Program or after school activities would not be included.

Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the Department of Public Safety (678) 594-8620.
