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 on campus 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. (12:10 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. Students who go to PrimeTime are escorted to the PrimeTime classroom.
Student Pick Up
Please meet your child in front of the school. The front curb is painted green to indicate 15-minute stopping and white for 3-minute stopping. Signs are posted to assist you. Cars are not to enter the parking lot at any time between the hours of 7:40 a.m. and 2:20 p.m. 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.
