    This school is so disappointing. The parking situation is ridiculous! The safety patrol teacher is advising parents not to park on the school parking lot because it's reserved for teachers mind you there is no "reserved" sign anywhere. Another thing they're so quick to ask you to move that they don't pay attention to the other drivers blocking the handicap parking spots as they watch their child walk into school! Very disorganized! After school programs are limited space but should beads available for any child! Smh the office staff is a joke as well. And the lunch staff too. They charged me for my sons lunch but my son has been sent to school with a lunch bag from home every single day. Hopefully this gets better because i don't want to take my son out of this school because he likes his friends. How can we be there for our kids if we can't even park there! Smh
