Providing efficient access to the parking lot avoiding congestion entering or leaving is a priority. We only have 27 spaces that we want to use the best way possible. The board of directors are implementing some changes. There will be some times with 5 minutes maximum drop-off / pick-up only spots. There will be some times of not restricted parking. There will be times of parking by permit only. We'll be paying special attention to the no parking areas and violators may be ticketed. Stay tuned for more details.

During the spring they can come after school to have a head start with their fitness to be ready for the summer! During the fall they can keep paddling after school to take advantage of the nice weather and the water as much as possible.
