Changes to morning car rider procedures

This area is for buses only!   If you must park and walk your children in, please use the parking lot to the right as you enter Bells Ferry and enter in through the front of the building.  This procedure is in place for the safety of our Bells Ferry students.   We appreciate our Bells Ferry families following our safety procedures.
