    West Parking Lot

    This is a reminder that the West Lot is closed to students and parents.  We ask that you do not park or drop off students at this location.  This lot is reserved for teachers.  Student drop offs create congestion on Taggart and Clinton streets, delaying teachers ability to get to work on time.
