Holly’s Most Serious Safety Concern
In consultation with our PAC we strongly feel that our most serious and worrisome safety concern at Holly is our parking lot pick up and drop off especially on rainy days. The key to improving safety is for parents that are picking up or dropping off not to leave their vehicles unattended in the drop off zones. It is critical that vehicles in these zones continue to move forward as space becomes available. We fully understand that parents picking up our youngest students and who have toddlers in the car may want to leave their car unattended but we respectfully request that you find a place to park to do this. Thank you for your help and support.
