We are excited to offer you a new morning student drop off option. Due to parent feedback concerning traffic issues on Ivey Ranch Road near, the front of the school, King will be emending its traffic plan with the city.
Starting Januarys 4th, we will be opening the gate on Mesa drive near the edge of the tennis courts. Parents will be able to park along the west side of Mesa drive, and students may enter at the “tennis court gate”. There will be a Security guard manning this gate from 7am until 730am Monday through Friday.
The West side of Mesa drive provides ample pull-in and pull-out space so please avoid the traffic on Ivey Ranch at the front of school by dropping your student at the new entry gate starting January 4th.
