PARKING – Please do not park in front of the school on York Street during admissions and dismissal.  Our school buses need to access the sidewalk to pick up and drop off students.  Also, please do not park on the right side of Hagert street near Sepviva street.  The Portside Arts bus picks up students there after school.  Thank you.

The Philadelphia Parking Authority has begun to ticket cars parked around the perimeter of the school from 7:30am to 4:30pm.
