Friday Parade PARKING and CARPOOL

With all the excitement for Friday afternoon's Homecoming Parade, please plan to park at Riverstone. Please note parking procedures for the various Friday festivities:

  • Due to the high school entrance gravel lot being closed for construction, shuttles from Riverstone Church will be available from 1:15-1:45 p.m. for parents who would like to attend the daytime PARADE (parade only). Shuttles will continue for parents (adults only) at the conclusion of the parade and will run until 2:45 p.m.
  • Shuttle will pick up at the top of Shelton steps (which cross to Lot B) at the base of the main entrance drive. We will have two shuttles running during the these time windows.
  • The Pep Rally is for students in grades 6-12 only, no parents.
  • Please NO early checkouts. We ask you return via shuttle to your car and continue to your normal carpool route.
  • If you are coming on campus for carpool, please do not do so until after 3:00 p.m. to avoid back-ups.
  • Shuttles are also available from Riverstone for the evening tailgate and game, which drop off and pick up at Mulkey circle by the main office.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during carpool as we celebrate with our school community!
