Staff supervision of students begins at 7:15 a.m. For safety reasons, no students are to arrive at school before 7:15 a.m. except for those children who are enrolled in Prime Time beginning at 6:00 a.m.
Student Drop Off
Adults delivering children to school should leave them off at the front entrance.
Our award-winning Safety Patrol helps provide safe travel to and from school.
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 next to the auditorium 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 2:15 p.m. (12:30 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 front entrance. The front curb is painted white to indicate 3 minute stopping. Red painted curbs are fire lanes and parking is never allowed at any time. Signs are posted to assist you. Cars are not to enter the parking lot at any time between the hours of 7:30 a.m. - 7:45 a.m. and 2:00 p.m - 2:30 p.m. The parking lot gates will be closed. 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 without a crossing guard present. The school's main concern is for the health and safety of your children.
Specific dismissal procedures vary by grade level, as indicated below:
If you are more than 10 minutes late to pick up a student, please go to the front office. You may be asked to provide identification. Please review the Visitors Policy page for additional information.
