before & after school

Student Valets work in the pictured area (parallel to Shearwater) 8:10 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. A fifth grader supervised by a parent volunteer will open your car door, assist your child out of car, and then close the car door.

Getting to School

Parking is extremely limited. Families are strongly encouraged to carpool, bike, or walk to school. There are bike racks near the parking lot and Footsteps (classrooms 28 and 29).

If you must drive, please allow plenty of time to drive slowly and carefully to keep our community safe. Follow all traffic laws, parking signage, and the instructions of staff and volunteers at all times.

Please, no unattended cars in the red zones or loading zones during school hours. Never park or pause in a spot designated for handicapped drivers and passengers.

Please read more information about Safe Routes to School here and here.
