All other side streets, as well as the church parking lot on the corner of 12th Street & Monroe Street, may be used for student pick up.

Parents should not drive on the blacktop to park, or for student drop off or pick up. **During the school day, the blacktop parking lot is reserved for LMS and District staff only.
