Kumeyaay school grounds and classrooms are clean and in good repair. The school community takes pride in keeping the classrooms and grounds clean and attractive. The custodial staff works to ensure that the classrooms are clean and ready for instruction each morning. The district’s mobile maintenance program has continued to keep areas painted and in good order. Kumeyaay has a beautiful joint-use field that is maintained by the San Diego Parks and Recreation Department and is used throughout the year.
The Kumeyaay staff provides supervision on the playground before school starting at 7:30 a.m. Parent volunteers help supervise our morning Running Club. The school principal and a parent volunteer supervise the parking lot area each morning to facilitate students being dropped off for school. The parking lots have been reconfigured so that there are now pedestrian walkways and speed bumps to help make traveling through the parking lot a much safer process. San Diego Advocates for Youth (SAY) provide after-school care beginning at 2:10. During the day, the office staff monitors access through the front gate, the only gate open during school hours. Volunteers and visitors are required to sign-in at the office and provide picture identification. Strict student release procedures are in place and followed.
Our school has received upgrades thanks to Proposition MM, including instructional support space, improved access for the physically disabled, technology and electrical upgrades, and windows and blinds. Through Proposition S funds, all our grade 3 and 4 classrooms have been equipped with Promethean interactive whiteboards.
