Bike racks are located in the pathway between the new music building and the P.E. building. Make sure to lock up your bike to a bike rack. Do not lock it to the light poles.
Do you play a fall sport and don’t know where to store your sports equipment for the school day? Every morning room P-7 will be open for athletes to store their sports bags and equipment for the school day. At 8:05 every morning P-7 will be locked and will be re-opened at the end of school for athletes to retrieve their sports items. We will not be re-opening the room until after school. If your sport has an early dismissal, the room will be available at that time to retrieve your items.
