Student Drop Off

Adults delivering children to school should leave them off at the parking lot entrance

Preschool: Parents may drop off students at the classrooms. Following drop-off, parents should leave campus. The gate is on Estrella Street.

Grades Kindergarten through 5:

All students are to go directly to the blacktop and line up on their classroom room number. Students are not to go to their classrooms for any reason. Supervision is provided in the blacktop area.


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 3:10 p.m. (12:40 p.m. on Wednesdays) and should leave campus immediately upon dismissal. Students who ride the bus to and from school will leave shortly after dismissal.

Student Pick Up

Please meet your child at the parking lot areas. Please ensure the safety of all students by not parking in the bus loading area and/or asking your child(ren) to cross the street unsafely. The school's main concern is for the health and safety of your children.

Specific dismissal procedures vary by grade level, as indicated below:

Kindergarten: Students are dismissed from the back gate by their teacher upon seeing a responsible adult or older sibling.
Grades 1-5: Teachers walk all students to the parking lot area marked by their grade level number.
PrimeTime Extended Day Program Students: All PrimeTime students are dismissed from their classrooms and sent to the auditorium for check in.
Bus Students: All buses park in the loading/unloading zone in the front of the school. All bus students and space-available riders will line up with a staff member.

If you are more than 10 minutes late to pick up a student, please go to the front office. You will be asked to provide identification and sign the student out before the student may leave campus.
