Parking 
  • Parent parking is only on the street, NOT in the staff parking lot.  

  • Please allow extra time to park on Mondays and Tuesdays when there are street cleaning restrictions in effect from 12-3 pm.  

  • There is a parking space on Las Palmas reserved for the school bus and there is absolutely no parking or drop off in this area.

  • There is one Handicapped Parking space on June just north of 2nd Street.

 
Traffic 
  • There are restricted turns at certain times from 3rd Street, June Street, and Las Palmas, so read traffic signs carefully!  

  • Do not make U-turns / 3 point turns in front of school.

  • NEVER block our neighbors’ driveways and obey all traffic rules.  Please be considerate of trashcans on garbage collection days. 

  • Please use crosswalks with your children.

  • Helmets are strongly encouraged when riding a bicycle or scooter to school. Please walk your bike/scooter when you arrive at the school crosswalks and on sidewalks around the school.

 
Morning Drop-off
  • Students are admitted through five different entrances.

  • Each entrance opens at 7:45 am. For the safety and security of your child, please do not drop off children before 7:45 am, as the main school doors are locked and there is no supervision available. Students who need to be dropped off earlier should sign up for Kids KOR morning supervision program.

  • Students who arrive after 8:15 am should check-in the main entrance, June Street A. Students who arrive 8:15 will be considered tardy and will be issued a tardy slip.

  • Parents of PAL and SDC students may walk their child onto campus throughout the school year.

  • Parents of ETK, TK, K and grade 1 students will be allowed to walk their child onto campus the first three days of school (8/16 – 8/18). All other parents may accompany their child up to the gate. Beginning 8/20, parents of ETK, TK, K, and grade 1 students will no longer be permitted to enter campus with their child, but may accompany their child to their gate’s check-in area.

  • All families are strongly encouraged to use the safety valet car lines (see details below). Parents who would like to park and walk their child to the entrance, should not park along any of the school-side curbs. Parents are encouraged to park north of 2nd Street, east of June, and west of Las Palmas and enjoy the walk to their designated entrance.

  • Families with multiple children should enter together through the youngest sibling’s gate.

  • Before entering campus, all students must go through Daily Health Check screening procedures. The Daily Health Check screening procedures include either answering questions around wellness and exposure, as well as verifying an individual’s adherence to the District’s safety requirement or using the Daily Pass online portal to answer the Daily Heath Check questions prior to arrival. If using the Daily Pass online portal, a Daily Pass QR Code is generated if the student is cleared to be on campus. Students can either print out the Daily Pass QR Code or show the QR code on a device to the welcomer at the check-in area.

  • While LAUSD is not requiring temperature checks for the 2021 school year, we will continue to employ them.

  • Once admitted, all students should proceed directly to their designated waiting area. If given permission by their teacher, students may proceed directly to their classrooms upon arrival.

  • On rainy days, (details forthcoming)

  • Do not use the staff parking lot to drop-off students.

Safety Valet​
  • Grade 1-5 students may be dropped off at the grade level’s designated safety valet lane. The Las Palmas A safety valet is for grade 3 students. The Las Palmas B safety valet is for grade 4 and 5 students. The June Street B safety valet is for grade 1 and 2 students. There is no safety valet for PAL, ETK, TK, and K students. See the map on page 8 for safety valet lane locations.

  • Children of families utilizing the safety valet must either have their Daily Pass QR code printed out or their own personal device that is capable of displaying the Daily Pass QR code.

  • Whenever possible, students should exit the car curbside.

  • Do not enter the driveway if you intend to park and walk your child into school.

  • Please follow the direction of the drop-off volunteers in the school drive-through lanes. Please be sure to continually pull forward and drop off passengers in the designated drop off area. Courtesy towards volunteers is expected at all times. Please treat them with respect and provide a good example for your child.

  • Safety valet staff and volunteers are limited to opening doors. Should a child need help to get out of their car seat, the child’s parent will need to provide that assistance.

  • Whenever possible, please have all your child's belongings in the car, not the trunk. DO NOT use this time to give your child lunch money, fix hair, put on coats...etc. Please have all of this done before entering the car lane each morning.

  • Put your car in park when your child is exiting.

  • After exiting their vehicle, the student should proceed to join their entrance check-in queue.

  • Obey all traffic laws and use extreme caution while using the drop off lanes, especially when exiting and merging.
