THE POLICE OFFICER ROCCO LAURIE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT

THE POLICE OFFICER ROCCO LAURIE SCHOOL 

IS DEDICATED TO EMPOWERING, EDUCATING, AND ENLIGHTENING OUR FUTURE STUDENT LEADERS TO BECOME STRONG GLOBAL CITIZENS BY INSPIRING A LOVE OF LEARNING, EMBRACING THE FULL RICHNESS AND DIVERSITY OF OUR COMMUNITY, AND NURTURING THEIR SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING.

As you may have noticed, parking around I.S. 72 can be something of a challenge.
However, at no time is it acceptable to park your vehicle on private property.  This includes but is not limited to the church across the street on Saxon Avenue or the private residences around the school. Nor is it acceptable to park in the bus slots.
Also, please do not indulge in reckless practices such as backing up onto Ferndale Avenue from Saxon Avenue in order to drop a student off at the main entrance.  If it is necessary to drop your student directly in front of the school, please come up Ferndale Avenue from Travis Avenue, as Ferndale is a one way street. 

The safety of our students, staff, and  the community is of the utmost importance!

Thank you for your cooperation!
