Scouts and Parents:
Our next Troop Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday January 28th. WE WILL NO LONGER BE MEETING AT ST. BART’S. The new meeting site is at Baywood Elementary School. The address is 600 Alameda De Las Pulgas in San Mateo. It is right next to Aragon High School. The meeting will be held in the Multipurpose room at the back of the school. Please follow the directions below to ensure safe and smooth drop off and pick up. 

1. Use the second entrance off of Alameda De Las Pulgas (farther south and closer to Aragon HS). 
2. Follow the driveway around past the front of the building and down the left hand side of the campus. 
3. Drop your scout off at the long wheelchair ramp and stairs. He can walk up to the Multipurpose room where the meeting is held. 
4. For parking, continue down the ramp and cross over into the parking lot of Aragon high school.

Mr. Swami expects all parents to participate in closing circle at 8:45 pm. So for pick up, please park in the Aragon lot and walk up to the Multipurpose room. Do not wait on the ramp to pick up your scout or make him walk by himself down to the Aragon Parking lot. 

Please contact me directly with any questions or concerns.
