The entrance to the parking lot needs to remain passable at all times.  This is a safety concern for Timber Trail.  Emergency personnel must be able to enter and exit the parking lot.  PLEASE do not enter the parking lot if there is not room for a car to pass on the left side.
Do not block the entrance. The waiting line of cars should stay as far to the right side as possible in the parking lot to allow emergency responders to pass in case of an emergency and to allow others to enter and exit parking spaces.
We are teaching "The Six Pillars of Character" to your children.  Please lead by example.
              Trustworthiness* Respect* Responsibility* Fairness* Caring* Citizenship

PODs (personally owned devices) are not allowed at Timber Trail.  We
know that some students bring cell phones to school at their parents
request.  The cell phone must be kept in their backpacks (not on their
person) and should not be brought out while in the building or on
their way to or from the buses.  Parents accept full responsibility
for lost, stolen, or broken devices.  We kindly request that visitors and volunteers refrain from using their cell phone while in the building.
