Please drop off students in the north parking lot only. The south parking lot is for staff, guest and handicapped parking.  Also in the south parking lot is a drive through, which is only for our day care vans (do not block this area if you need to park).  When you drop off your child in the morning in the north parking lot, there will be a teacher on duty asking you to pull forward which will allow your child to enter the campus by the front office. Please do not drop off your child in the south parking lot or behind the cafeteria.    

Head Start and day care parents should park in the north parking lot rather than stop and park in the drive-through lane.  At dismissal time, the teachers will walk children to the north parking lot. Parents may wait in their cars IN A SINGLE LANE OF TRAFFIC.   


KINDERGARTEN PARENTS --kindergarten students are not to walk alone to and from school or ride a bike.  We feel our kindergartners are still too young to get to and from school alone.  You may want to check out our on-site day care program.

WALKING STUDENTS  use the west gates at the back of the school if walking west or walk through the Alta Vista/Cortez gate if walking towards the apartments on Dunlap Avenue. Students need to walk through the community pathway at the south end of our school to get to the crossing guard in the front of the school. No student should walk through any parking lot. 


ALL visitors to campus must pick up a visitor badge in the office before proceeding anywhere on our campus. This is for the safety of all of our students.  Please do not pick up your children directly from the playground or classroom even if you have a visitor badge. The office staff will call your student to the office to leave campus.
