Morning Drop-Off Procedures
We have nearly 500 children arriving between 8:00 and 8:12 am every morning. The following procedures have been updated to address the traffic and safety issues the communities of Hawthorne, Immaculate Conception and Elmhurst are experiencing. These procedures should be taken seriously, as your child’s safety is our absolute first priority.
