Rachel Carson Elementary School Reviews

Reviewed on

Disappointed this school year at Carson about student drop area where I dont see it safe.  From the past years, most parents drop-off in the parking lot drive thru drop at the gate and go.  This year, they changed, the whole parking lot save for the school employees and there is plenty places and more than enough for the whole school employees.  I think it is ridiculous.  Maybe this time it is okay still summer, but what if when it gets cold and rain.  The child to walk far to get into the school yard.  Old place drop-off I think most preferable to, it safe and parents can monitor and see their kids walk into the yard then go.
