With the increase in student population, LISA Academy is staggering times that students will be starting and ending classes, thus decreasing the traffic that will be in line at any one time.  It is vital to adhere to the traffic plan, to ensure that everyone gets through in a safe and timely manner and we appreciate your cooperation in our endeavor.  
 
 
For everyone’s safety, we ask that NO parents or students walk across the traffic line.  Also to keep everyone safe parents are asked NOT to park and walk in the fence as it is a dangerous situation with traffic entering and exiting the open gates.  Students will only be allowed to be dropped off or picked up on sidewalk and NO student will be allowed to step off of sidewalk without a parent or guardian present.
