Please always use the cross walks, both on the streets and on campus.
Do not allow your child to cut through car line or get out of your vehicle in traffic.
Drivers may NOT exit the vehicle in car line. A member of Safety Patrol or staff will assist your child if needed.
Front gate and back gate dismissal areas:
If your child walks home or to a designated area, please note that you are responsible for establishing a safe route with your child. Children can be released from the northern or southern side of campus. Crossing guards should not be a resource for childcare after school. Their responsibilities include directing traffic, so children have safe locations to cross. Bikers should walk their bikes off campus and down to the crossing guards before getting on their bikes to ride home. The front gate and back gate dismissal is for walkers and bikers only. These dismissal locations are not for parking and walking up to get your child. If you are picking your child up by car, please remember to use the car line.
Please make sure all caregivers who drop off or pick up your child are aware of these rules.

Attention Mabry Dolphins, the Dads Club will be having another donuts with dad event and wanted to share some of the key info below:
Date & Time: February 22nd from 7am-7:30am
Location: Coleman track (directly next to Mabry school)
