New parking procedures will be used this year at Houston Elementary School.
Elementary Principal Amy Dill said the district has provided a new parking lot for parents wishing to walk their children to school. It is southeast of the elementary building. Parents dropping off their children should travel east on the south lot, and a teacher will accompany the child into the school. The south lot can be accessed on King Street.
School doors will open at 7:40 a.m., Dill said. There will be no supervision for students prior to that time.
Dill said the plan is similar to the pick-up procedures currently used by the district.
Parents of preschool students are asked to use the same drop-off procedures. Parents picking up afternoon preschoolers are asked to park north of the crosswalk and travel east up Mill Street.
