Parking Lot Reminders

Please find these words a friendly reminder to avoid parking in the handicapped spots, unless authorized, or any area that has markings such as diagonal lines denoting a no parking area.This applies to front and back of our middle school. We are experiencing some congestion and frustration, especially at the busy start and end to the day. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
