Upper School Student Drivers,

Tuesday, November 8th we will have visitors on campus for voting. To accommodate traffic flow near the buildings: 

Juniors and Sophomores – Park on the practice field located to the left of the baseball field. There will be maintenance workers directing you to park there. 

Juniors – Please park down by the baseball field and no farther up than the lower tennis courts.

Seniors – You may park in senior parking, but know that faculty may be parking there as well. You can park down the road toward the baseball field as long as it is in an actual spot (not on the grass).  Thanks in advance!

Tuesday, November 8th, we will celebrate our democracy and Election Day with KidsVoting! Please stop by the Private Dining Room between classes, during breaks and lunch, and during student choice to vote! The AP Gov students and ELP classes will also be collecting exit poll data. In order to fully celebrate our right to vote and democratic values, please wear your red, white, and blue that day! Since we are a precinct for regular voting and KidsVoting, students may not wear political shirts supporting particular candidates and/or issues since electioneering activities are not allowed too close the voting polls.
