Academically sound school but they have done from a Parent Friendly atmosphere a couple years ago to a ANTI Parent atmosphere this year. They have implemented a new Afternoon pick up program that is a total nightmare and they decided to do this without any parent input or involvement. As a parent I am very upset. I have to deal with the extra time, extra stress and danger this new pick up procedure puts me in. The additional time waiting for me to be able to pick up my son also stresses my son out. I used to have to arrive at school about a half hour early and would park and walk to greet and hug my child when he came out and today that wait is an hour at least. We are forced to sit in idling cars, many on the main road (Lawrence) for over an hour. This is not time or cost efficient. Wonder if the school board wants to chip in for all the additional fuel we are using for this additional wait time for their idiotic new procedure Wait till some of the parents start taking the board to court over this as well as the thru traffic lane at school becoming (more parking and waiting in line) and being totally blocked. This can't be legal!
