   Principal’s Message

 Linden El Families,

            For those dropping off students in the morning, I hope you have noticed an improvement in the pace cars are able to move through the car line. We have designated parking/drop off lanes and moved pedestrian crossing to the area behind cones. Thank you all for your patience and flexibility while we continue to find a reasonable and safe way to address our morning parking lot traffic. Also, thanks to those offering constructive suggestions.

Mrs. Evans, Principal
