Parking in Front of Ottewell

This is a reminder to parents that the bus drop-off area in front of Ottewell must be left free of cars AT ALL TIMES. If you are dropping off, or picking up your child, you may not stop in the area designated for busses. The safety of our Special Needs students is at risk when this occurs, especially during the winter months. Please know that the EPS have been notified of this situation and may be out ticketing cars. Also, please note that it is unsafe to make U-turns in front of the school. We are concerned for the safety of all our children.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
