Carpool Reminder

Please pull forward all the way through to the North parking lot to drop off and pick up your student. Do not stop in the front of the building (even right past the Pull Forward Please sign). PLEASE do NOT use the faculty parking lot on the south side as your personal pick up/drop off location. The church asks that you NOT use their parking lots as your carpool or parking lot unless you have special permission. Please see the seminary teachers if you feel you are the exception to their rule. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us keep our students safe and in being good citizens to our community.
