 Muir Community,

This week at Muir students have been hard at work from 4th graders working on persuasive techniques in writing to our 1st graders learning about 2D and 3D shapes. I am continually impressed with our students dedication to their learning! Please see below for important information coming up in the Muir community!

Arrival and Dismissal

As a reminder, our parking lot is closed to car traffic from 8:20-8:40 and 2:55-3:10 each day. Due to the large number of students who walk to and from school, we need to limit car movement to ensure safety. For street traffic, please make sure you are adhering to all posted signs for drop-off and pick-up. Parking for drop-off is available on the west side of Kensington. The curb in between the parking lot entrance and exit is only used for drop-off. With the large amount of car traffic in a small space it is critical we are following safe driving practices. Thank you in advance for your assistance with a safe arrival and dismissal for students.
