For the safety of all children, please DRIVE SLOWLY and LOOK CAREFULLY. The driveway is divided into two lanes: the RIGHT lane is for drop off and pick up only; whenever possible, pull up all the way behind the first six parking stalls so that others may pull in behind you; drivers must remain in their vehicles. The LEFT lane is for drivers who intend to park and go into the school. Please review the traffic safety map.
You can give extra support to our school by registering for eScrip. Barron Park will receive 1-5% from each of your purchases at participating merchants.
