Valet Service for TK-1st Grade

Our valet volunteers have been happy to serve this week and they want to thank those parents who have been so cooperative.  There are a few things that we need from parents to make this a successful option for our community. Please... 

1. Don’t park in the valet lane.  

2. Only Pre/Kinder/1st grade can use the valet lane  

3. The child and the parent need to be wearing masks for the protection of our volunteers. 

4. Please cross at the crosswalk.   

5. The daily pass screenshot must be ready BEFORE hand and shown before opening the car door.   

6. Have the child put on the mask and the backpack beforehand to speed up the process.   

7. Please move forward as soon as the child is dropped off, in consideration of the cars waiting behind you.  

8. If the car ahead is taking some time, please do not try to forcibly drive through the cones. Wait for the volunteer to move the cones to let you out SAFELY.  

9. Please do Not block the driveways of our neighbors. 


Until we can secure additional help, 2nd through 5th-grade families will still need to WALK UP WITH A PARENT and check-in at the Topeka gate.   

Website Changes  

Our school website will be getting some major upgrades before the start of the 2022-23 school year. If you are interested in participating in the planning process or maybe you have some web design skills, please contact Jeff Sites at"
