4. Due to covid restrictions, pick-up will be a little different this year. Please follow these guidelines. 
** Only 1 person per student can pick-up an order. When you arrive, check-in at the front office to have your driver's license scanned. In order to be on campus, you must check-in to the front office FIRST. Drive down the Ag shop and park on the south side of the Ag shop door. Please stay in your vehicle. Mr. Gatlin or myself will get the name of the student you are picking up for. We will load your order on a cart and bring it to your vehicle. You can then get out of your vehicle (1 person), check your order for accuracy and sign off. Then you can load your order into your vehicle.**
