If you are entering the buliding during the school day, you will be required to use the Front Door located off of Jackson street. Upon entry, sign in and obtain a visitor's badge. You may park off Jackson street, but space is limited. If you park in the lot behind school, you will be asked to walk around to the Front entrance. Please help us ensure the safety and security of our building. Thank you. 
Students should be dropped off using the carpool lane. Cars should enter the lot off Breckinridge street. 

Student should NOT be dropped off on Jackson Street. Cars stopping in the middle of traffic is a safety concern.

Please keep Lampton Street clear for buses. 

___________________________________
Carpool information and Reminders:
1.)  All students who are car riders should go to the cafeteria after they are dismissed from 6th period.  No students should be waiting in the office for parents to arrive.   

2.)  Any student who has received a carpool number should have received 2 placards.  If you need an additional one, please contact Ms. Stinnett at loren.stinnett@jefferson.kyschools.us.

3.)  Only students who are regular car riders (average of once a week or more) will receive a carpool number.  We have found students who do not use their number on a consistent basis do not remember their number.  If your student is an occasional rider, please tell him/her to report to the cafeteria.  You will need to come through the carpool line, tell the person outside your student's name, and we will send out your student. 

4.)  If your student is a regular car rider and you still have not received a number, please contact Ms. Stinnett at loren.stinnett@jefferson.kyschools.us.
