The new Drop-off area provides a continuous corridor of GI practices between the Learning Pavilion and the Charter School. CU Structural soils, pervious concrete sidewalks, and

Flexi-pave tree surrounds are arranged to provide enhanced pedestrian access to the Charter School and the RMSC Pre-School.
