Student Drop Off
Adults delivering children to school should leave them off at the following locations:
|Infant, Preschool, and Kindergarten:||Parents may drop off students at their classrooms. Following drop-off, parents should leave campus.|
|Grades 1-4:||All students are to go directly to the cafeteria area for breakfast or to the blacktop. Students are not to go to their classrooms for any reason. Supervision is provided in the cafeteria area, the blacktop area, and various high traffic points on campus.|
The San Diego Police Department requests that only students in grades four and above ride bicycles to school. Although the school has designated an area for students to park bicycles, the San Diego Unified School District is not responsible for theft, damage, or loss of use to any bicycle, equipment or article left in or around this area. All such risk is assumed by the student.
All bicycles should have locks and licenses. Students are urged to secure their bicycles in an appropriate manner by using a quality lock and chain or other devices.
Helmets are required by California law. Students not wearing helmets may lose the privilege of parking a bike on school grounds. As defined in Vehicle Code Section 21212, any person under 18 years of age must wear a properly fitted and fastened helmet when riding a bicycle, scooter, skateboard, or when wearing in-line or roller skates. Helmets must also meet the standards of either the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Students are dismissed promptly at 2:10 p.m. (12:15 p.m. on Thursdays) and should leave campus immediately upon dismissal. Students who ride the bus to and from school will leave shortly after dismissal.
