just curious if there have been talks about making a bigger parking lot for the Seniors. All Seniors should be able to Drive to school, rather than using it as a privilege. Honestly that is one thing that all kids look forward to,as a SENIOR.

A. There are many educational priorities ahead of that one. However, modifications are going to be done to that parking lot to improve traffic flow as a result of a Capital Project that was approved in December.

Why can’t seniors sign out with their phones instead of the paper. Much faster doing sign out to leave early with a phone.

Written by on January 30, 2018 in Grapevine

A.  We are currently looking for a way to make this process quicker. The issue with using a phone is they could sign in/out from anywhere. They do not necessarily have to even be at school. If anyone has ideas they should talk to the senior CAP, senior associate, or principal.

The HSW monitors need to be taught how to do there job! I brought my kid early to school because I was called in early to work and I don’t allow him to take the bus because the bus driver is rude and the kids are mean. It was freezing outside and they wouldn’t allow him inside in the warmth and had to stand outside in the cold.
