Morning Drop-Off and Parking

Morning Drop- Off and Parking Information for the 2018-19 School Year

In this section, parents can learn about parking, drop off, and safety policies and procedures.

 

Drop-Off is your student’s morning valet service. AWESOME SAUCE, right?

For the 2018-19 school year, we’ve made some changes to morning drop-off. Please familiarize yourself with the drop-0ff and parking traffic flow for Upper Parking Lot: Map of Morning Drop-off and Parking Traffic Flow for Upper Parking Lot

 

40- minutes of volunteering (8:00 am- 8:40 am) with a BIG impact! 

In order for drop-off to work, we need two (2) volunteers… every day! Can you pitch in a few shifts over the school year? If you can help kids getting out of a car safely, and if you can’t volunteer more than a few minutes here and there, then Drop-Off is for YOU!

Sign up for a shift during your child(ren)’s classroom(s) week(s), or whenever you have 40-minutes to spare! Drop Off Volunteer Sign Up

 

GOLDEN RULES OF DROP-OFF 

  1. Driver to respect volunteers at all times and adhere to drop off policies and procedures.
  2. Help the flow of traffic by pulling all the way forward down the drop off lane and have your child ready to exit your vehicle via the curbside of your car.
  3. Driver must remain in the car and have the vehicle in PARK before student(s) exits the vehicle. Do not have prolonged goodbyes, brush hair, put shoes on, linger, etc. If you need to do this, please park rather than use drop off.
  4. Students should wait until the door is opened by a volunteer. Exiting on their own is dangerous and slows down the drop off lane.
  5. Trunks and back door hatches are NOT permitted in the drop-off.
  6. Please respect parking restrictions and do not stop or park in a yellow, handicapped or red zone. Either in or outside the parking lot – it is unsafe and you will be ticketed.
  7. Do not drop students off on the North side of Mountain Boulevard. There will be nobody to help your child cross this very busy street. Please use crosswalks on Mountain Blvd.

 

Important Safety Supervision Notices:

  • Unsupervised children from any grade, are not to be left on school grounds before 8:00. There will be no supervision on the playground for any child before 8:00!
  • Kinders may not use drop off or left unsupervised on school grounds before 8:30.
  • Inform caregivers. If someone other than yourself is dropping off your children (e.g. grandparents, friends, child care providers) and are not reading this, please share with them drop off procedures and safety info.

 

Parking Advisory:

Parking is a premium in our neighborhood. Kindly observe parking times and restrictions, especially the loading and unloading zones along Mountain Blvd. in front of the school, and residential driveways. In addition to street parking, you can also park at the Montclair Village Parking Garage. Thank you.

 

Why be on time… when you can arrive early?

Drop Off/Pick-Up Tips:

  • Leave early, Beat the 8:25 rush!
  • If you want to park and walk kids in, get here at 8:15, there are loads of spaces
  • Carpool or walking school bus
  • Free street parking (Moraga Ave, Thornhill Drive)
  • Paid street parking Mountain Boulevard, Montclair Village side
  • Lucky’s supermarket in Montclair Village allows parents to use the upper deck.

Keep in touch! We will continue to monitor drop off zones daily to see what can be improved. Please share your experiences and suggestions with the administration.
