Middle School Committee Asks for Your Input

The Middle Level Committee, made up of principals, teachers and parents from all 3 middle schools, asks for community input about what middle school should offer our students. This first survey (additional surveys will be posted later in the year) will be available until 5 pm on Wednesday, October 21. Please click here to take part anonymously in the committee's initial survey

Parking and Student Drop Off

Parking at school is limited. Parents are asked to park either in the front of the school building or on the street. We ask that you obey the posted "No Parking" signs on the street in front of the building, and the yellow curbs which also indicate no parking.  Please do not block residential driveways. 

Additional spaces are available on Dorado, Winston Way and Covered Bridge Road as the spots in front of the school fill up quickly.

We ask that the parking lot in the rear of the school be reserved for faculty and staff, which avoids having staff members park in the front of the building or on the street, further congesting the front of the school during drop off and pick up. Carpooling, arriving early and walking are strategies that some of our parents have used to avoid the parking problems at Barclay in the past.

Please hold your child's hand while navigating around the school grounds. 
Playing on the school grounds during drop off/pick up time is prohibited.  The school does not assume responsibility for monitoring students when under the care of their parents.
