Traffic and Transportation Safety

Parking/Pick-Up/Drop-Off

  • We encourage ALL students who live in the neighborhood to walk to school. It is great exercise!
  • Vehicle drop-off and pick-up areas are limited. They include the front circle off Escuela, the back circle off Toft, Escuela and Latham.
  • The curved curb outside main office is a drop-off zone only. Cars must not be left unattended for any reason at this curb.
  • When dropping off, pull as far forward as possible even if you see no one behind you.
  • Limited parking spaces are available in the parking lot in front of the main office.
  • There is a crosswalk at the corner of Escuela and Latham and another in front of school. The crosswalk in front of school has a crossing guard.
  • Students and parents should use the crosswalks and not cross in any other area.
  • Drivers must yield to pedestrians using these crosswalks. It’s the law.  Blocking crosswalks is illegal and violators are reported and ticketed.
  • Parents may NOT use staff parking lot in front of the multipurpose room. This is a small area that is heavily congested.

Bicycles, Scooters, Skateboards, Skates, etc.

  • Bicycle racks are provided between the class wings behind the office. 
  • Bicycles must be locked securely to the racks and should not be left overnight. The school cannot be responsible for loss or damage to bicycles on campus.
  • We discourage skateboards and scooters unless they can be locked to a bike rack.  There is no room for storage in our classrooms.
  • Children are required by law to wear helmets while using bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and skates.
  • No one may ride a scooter or skateboard on campus during school days until 4:15 (or 2:30 pm on Thursdays).

Bus Transportation

Currently, there is district bus transportation for neighborhood students who attend other district schools. The bus stop is on Latham. For more information, check with the district office at 526-2500.
