When dropping off students at Clara Peterson for school each morning, please drop off students in the back of the building and not out front on Franklin Street. This will prevent students from having to cross the bus lane to get into the building. Also, please remember that the bus lane is open to only bus traffic from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. each morning.
