Student Drop Off and Pick Up

The safety of our children, both physical and emotional is the highest priority. As we arrive and leave daily, the mornings and afternoons can be a stressful time as families and students rush or linger about school. It is vital that we model the patience and respect we want our children to take into their future. Please allow yourself time to find parking and walk. Please be respectful of marked parking stalls and any traffic cones. Also, please be thoughtful of our neighbors and do not park on grass, in or in front of driveways, obey the parking signs, and be courteous of pedestrian and automobile traffic. Please help us keep our students and families safe. If you see anyone violating traffic or safety laws in our parking lot or on Leigh Ave please join us in making a difference and contact traffic enforcement at (408) 277-4341 or https://www.sjpd.org/_forms/TEU_Request_Form.asp to let them know that we need police presence to help with the safety of our students and families. Together we can make a difference and ensure that we keep everyone safe.
