REMINDER: PARKING, DROP-OFF/PICK-UP, AND BUS UNLOADLOADING/LOADING CHANGES

Dear Ardenwald Families,

As we prepare for the new school year, I am reaching out to families to let them know of an important change that impacts parking, drop-off/pick-up, and bus unloading/loading, at Ardenwald. We are changing where our buses unload/load students. In order to do this, we have switched the bus unloading/loading location with the parent drop off/pick up area.

Why? Our number one goal is to make sure that students arrive and depart Ardenwald in a safe manner.  Over the years, the number of buses coming to Ardenwald has increased. This year we are excited to add a 3-5 Structured Learning Center for Academics (SLCA)* class, which will again increase the number of buses. With this continued increase, our buses will not fit in the current loading/unloading area and allow for student safety.

These changes will affect where families can park, drop off and pick up. We acknowledge this will require new habits, adjustments, and some inconvenience.  I appreciate our Ardenwald families flexibility and support for the safety of our students. Attached is a map to clarify changes.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at:
503-353-5322 -or- sernaa@nclack.k12.or.us

Thank you,
Angelica Serna
Assistant Principal Ardenwald & Lot Whitcomb
