–Parents, please be mindful of safety when coming to drop off students in the morning. We understand the morning rush and the frustration caused by Nashville’s traffic, but the safety of our families far outweighs the need to be at school on time. The far right lane on Thompson as you are traveling east is a bike lane, and some of our families need to walk in that lane. Please keep this in mind. Also, we are asking that you don’t cut through the parking lot on that east side of the building as a short cut. We thank you for your attention to these matters.–Don’t forget to sign up for the Parent Education Series. The first event, the book study on The Heart of Catholicism begins this Thursday, February 2 at 7:15 in the Science Lab.–Thanks again for your cooperation during Thursday’s evacuation. Remember, if you did not receive the electronic phone messages, please make sure that the office has your current contact info.
