We’ve had a few issues in our drop-off, pick-up zone that are unsafe. Here are some gentle reminders:
- There is no dropping off or picking up students in the parking lots—both north and east lots. Please park if you need to walk your student into the building, but don’t drop them off in these areas.
- A line forms on 17th East in both directions to get into our campus at these times. Please don’t bypass that line to enter. Some cars have gone down the wrong side of the street to pull in. Others have pulled in and a bus is exiting there. (Buses are the only vehicle that may exit through the entrance pathway.)
As we’ve watched the wait times for drop-off and pick-up, it’s generally 10 minutes or less that you are waiting in line. In the afternoons, by 3:05 the line has dissipated. In the mornings, by 8:18 or so the line is gone most mornings. Please be patient and courteous and plan for that time. Thank you!
Kindness Is Cool
Here are some examples of kindness happening at our school these past couple of months. We have the best students!

Gabriel Skinner (Kindergarten) – putting a clever badge away for someone so it wouldn’t get lost
Danah Abram (2nd grade) – sharing a pencil with a friend who lost theirs
Amy Alvarado-Espinoza (2nd grade) – shared her eraser with other students who didn’t have one
Enzo Peregrina (2nd grade) – gave all of his classmates thumbs up as their presentations were being presented
Eyal Vos (4th grade) – has been awesome at including our science friends & new Eagles at recess
