Dear Spartan Parents,
We want to take this moment to kindly remind everyone of our traffic policies and procedures. These measures have been established for the sole purpose of ensuring the safety of all members of the school community - including our beloved students, dedicated parents, and hardworking staff.
Our top priority is always the well-being of our students. Therefore, it's crucial that each person respects and follows these policies to guarantee a secure and efficient environment during drop-off and pick-up periods. We understand that mornings can be hectic and rushed, but we kindly ask everyone to remember that being late to work should never jeopardize the safety of our school community.
In summary, we would like to emphasize the following essential points:
Car Line and Crosswalks: Parents are kindly requested not to walk through the car line, and they should not attempt to cross the street with their child outside of designated crosswalks. These guidelines are in place to prevent accidents and ensure the smooth flow of traffic.
Parking: It's essential that parents do not park in unauthorized areas, including other private property lots. By respecting these boundaries, we maintain positive relationships with our neighbors and avoid disruptions to their properties.
Getting out of the vehicle: Parents are kindly requested to remain in their vehicles during the carline process, as exiting the vehicle during carline puts you at risk and interrupts the overall procedure. To ensure a smooth flow, we encourage students to be prepared to exit the vehicle promptly when it comes to a stop. Additionally, it's important to note that students should only exit from the designated exit points near the lower school area and not pass through the traffic flow. This practice helps maintain order and safety during the carline process.
It has come to our attention that there have been instances of families not complying with these guidelines. While we understand that occasional lapses can happen, any repeated disregard for safety is concerning. Moving forward we will continue to utilize our campus SAPD officers to correct traffic violations and welcome parents to report violations to us.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in making our school a safe and welcoming place! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our administrative office.
