    Parking Lot
    by Grant Naylor - Friday, 19 January 2018, 11:31 AM

    Hello Parkcrest Parents,

    We are having a challenge with students walking through the parking lots in the morning and right after school.  We as a staff are concerned about student safety as there are a lot of vehicles moving in and out of the parking lot throughout the day.  Further, we request that parents do not use the staff parking lots to pick up or drop off students before and after school.

    Thank You,
    Parkcrest Staff
