Ashkar Elementary Morning Drop Off for School: Parents and Guardians... We are looking for your help. We have many kids being dropped off in the morning for school. As we work together to make Ashkar the safest place it can be, here are some ways you can help our students. Please refrain from dropping your child(ren) off in the second row of parking or at the street. It is dangerous for kids to cross in front of the moving traffic. If you want to come in to the school, please park in the second row and escort your child across the parking lot. Please pull up along the front of the school for drop off and stop to drop your child off anywhere along the curb in front of the school. We ask that you please refrain from driving around other cars who are still letting kids out along the front curb. We do have staff out front beginning at 7:30 for supervision and help. Our doors open at 7:30. Please refrain from dropping your child off before that time. Safety matters most and we want all students to arrive safely to school. Thank you so much for your help.
