No, please leave your furry friends at home.  While it’s nice to take your dogs out for a walk when walking to and from school, please leave them at home or arrange to meet your student off campus. Arrival and dismissal is a very busy time, and we want to ensure safety for everyone. We also have students who are afraid of dogs. Thank you for your cooperation.
