Parking Lot and Safety Information:
Our main parking lot now has assigned parking. The parking lot on the corner of River Road and the school property, along with Minnetonka Street are the designated student drop-off and pick-up locations. Due to safety concerns, we ask that you please do not use the staff parking lot or the bus loop (from 8:00 a.m.– 4:00 p.m.) when dropping off or picking up students. There are however, designated “VISITOR” spaces in the staff parking lot if you are volunteering or coming into the school office. Visitor spots include numbered stalls #9 - #13. Thank you very much for your cooperation.
South Parking Lot Update
Our south parking lot has expanded. The pre-existing parking space remains a student drop off area. I have confirmed with the city that stopping to wait is permitted in front of the school on Minnetonka as well (north-bound).
If you wish to park to go into the school, please continue through the drop off area in the south lot and park in the parking lot along the fence. Children must be escorted to and from the school if parking in this lot. This is due to safety concerns for children walking across the parking lot.
We are looking into having a fence installed that would run the length of the parking lot to provide a safe walkway between the building and the parking lot.
Thank you for your patience. This is a work in progress. Please contact me at the school with any questions. Please see the attached map for a visual of the parking situation.
Bus Loop: Our bus loop is for SCHOOL BUS DROP OFF & PICK UP ONLY between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Please use the south parking lot or Minnetonka Street for student drop off and pick up.
Allergy Awareness: The chemicals used in scented products can make some people sick, especially those with fragrance sensitivities, asthma, allergies and other medical conditions. Examples of these products include, but are not limited to cologne, perfume, scented hand lotion, fragranced hair products, scented oils and/or similar products. We ask that all people visiting Minnetonka School consider the amount they apply and limit their use while in the school.
