Its the Law

We would like to remind you to arrive early and safely before and after school. Lakewood Municipal Code PROHIBITS students from crossing the street in front of the school or from a double-parked car. Students, even when accompanied by an adult, may only cross at the corners. The only safe way to let off or pick-up your student is at the curbside adjacent to the school.
