Valet - Drop-off & Pick-up
To ensure the safety of all students, we ask families to follow all rules of the road in neighborhoods around our campus, as well as noting restricted areas in our parking lots as noted by red curbs (No Parking), yellow curbs (Loading/Unloading - attended vehicles only), and blue zones (Restricted Handicapped Parking). Remember to stay alert for pedestrians at all times.
Drop-Off Zones – Students in Grades TK through Fifth are to be dropped off in the front parking lots only. Valet parking with the assistance of our 4th and 5th grade student leaders is available shortly after the school year begins, and can assist students in exiting vehicles to ease the morning routine. This occurs in the curved curb in the parking lot closest to the basketball courts, and is indicated by yellow curbing and orange safety cones. The yellow zone immediately in front of the office is reserved for childcare and chartered mini-busses delivering and picking up students. Again, please observe stop signs and attend to the direction of staff.
To protect our most vulnerable students, parking and drop-off in the back lot (off Mt. Hamilton Court) is for our preschool families only. To allow ample space for bus traffic and preschool parent drop-off, all parents with TK through 5th grade students who wish to enter campus through the gate adjacent to the large playgrounds are asked to park on neighboring streets and walk students onto campus. ESS families are welcome to use the green drop-off curb immediately in front of the ESS for drop-off/pick-up when delivering students to the ESS portables.
Drop-off and dismissal times can be hectic. Please allow yourself plenty of time, follow the traffic and parking lot procedures, and please be patient. Our students’ safety is everyone’s responsibility!
