Ice Cream Social Procedures

Dear MLK Families,

The PTO's Annual Ice Cream Social will begin at 6:00 PM tonight! This is a wonderfully fun social event for the whole family! I hope you'll make time to be there. Because this event is typically attended by nearly 1000 people, it is important to review the following information:

1. Evening activities at King are family events. Parents and guardians are responsible for the close supervision of their children. Children cannot attend without a supervising adult.
2. Be aware of the evening safety procedures at MLK--including NO PARKING IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING.

Due to the limited availability of parking at King, parents should plan to park in the neighborhood during all evening events at King.
There is NO PARKING in front of the school, by the fire hydrant, or on the left-hand side of the front circular drive.

Reason: The front drive is a fire lane and must be kept accessible for emergency vehicles. The fire hydrant area must also be kept clear.

Drop Off/Pick Up
The front entrance will be available for drop off and pick up ONLY. AT NO TIME SHOULD PARKING OCCUR IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL.

Severe Weather
In case of severe weather and a need for shelter, families will be able to access a variety of shelter areas within the school. Each classroom space in the building has a severe weather map showing areas that are safer if severe weather is in our area.
