PA Campus Enhancement Plan

The 8,400-square-foot addition will be used for physical education classes for kindergarten and elementary grades during the school day. After school, it will provide indoor practice facilities for tennis, basketball, archery, soccer and other extracurricular activities. The preliminary plan calls for seating in the gym area of the multi-purpose building to accommodate up to 384 people — large enough to possibly hold 5th and 6th grade basketball games. The junior-high and high-school teams will continue to play in the larger existing Stribling Gymnasium. The new kindergarten entrance will extend the current entrance so that cars will be able to drive under a canopy when dropping-off and picking-up students. The new covered walkway, over a raised sidewalk, will connect the elementary and kindergarten buildings to the Sethi Student Activities Building. Plans are to have construction completed by the time school starts up next August.

Please be patient in our carpool lines  Here are a few reminders that parents need to do to help carpool move quickly and ensure students are safe.

  • Please make sure student are getting out on the right side of the car
  • Pull up to the sign
  • Do not pass other cars
  • If you are dropping off a kindergarten and 1st-5th grade student, you only have to make one stop.  You can pull to the kindergarten building and when the kindergarten student gets out the older child can get out and walk through the 1st grade side entrance.
  • Afternoon carpool, the double line does not form until 3:10 AND the double line should not go past the brick columns.
