Parents waiting along Peak Boulevard’s north frontage road to pick up their kids from the school were invited to park at the church. Snow cones were served to parents and their children and to children walking home from school. Pastor Gary Underwood said parents may park in the church’s parking lot, 500 E. Peak Blvd., while they wait to pick up their kids this year.
