Message from the Principal

Dear Ross Park Families,

The holidays are upon us, and I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a very happy holiday season.  I am thankful I get to serve your children everyday, as it is a true gift.

On a second note, I do have a request for your help.  As you are aware, if you drop off or pick up your child to or from school, our parking lot can become quite congested.  Not only is this frustrating for parents that are in a hurry to get to the next commitment, it also can be unsafe for our students at times.  I want to acknowledge that I recognize the inefficiencies of the design of our parking lot, and am working to include updates and reconfigurations when future budgets are drafted.  Until we are able to redesign our lot, however, I do ask that you continue to follow a few simple rules that will help all parties involved.  Together we can ensure that our children are safe during pickup and drop off times!

Parking Lot Procedures:

1. Park in designated areas only.  If you wait for your child or walk with them to enter or exit the playground, please use the marked parking spaces in our front parking lot, the grass field to the east of our lot by the tennis courts, or the lot at the soccer field only to park. *Parking in the soccer field lot must be in designated parking spaces only to allow busses to travel through.

2.Use the parking lot loop for pull-through drop-offs only.  Parking in the loop on the east end of our main lot is prohibited, as it congests the entire flow of our lot. Please use a designated parking area if you choose to park.

3.Be Kind, Respectful, Responsible, and Safe!  Just as we teach these standards to all our Super Sailors, I ask that you uphold these values as well.  Please make choices that keep our parking lot a positive experience for all.

Thank you in advance for your efforts in this matter!  If you would be willing to help patrol our parking lot before and after school, please feel free to let our main office know.  We would welcome the help!

Respectfully Submitted,

Eve Mills, Principal
