Just a friendly reminder during drop off and pick up please do not block the entrances or exits to the driveway at Union/Middle School. One option is to have your child meet you in the overflow parking lot by the practice football field. The student follows the sidewalk to the crosswalk between the parking lot and the bus garage. Students would cross Finley street to the overflow parking. Thank you for your help, Mrs. Parrott,
