Parking Lot Procedures

Traffic/Parking Lot Safety Reminders

*Please discuss these important safety reminders with your student if they walk or ride their bike to/from school.* For their safety and the safety of others, students need to follow all traffic safety laws when traveling to and from school.  This is especially important for students crossing major intersections (ex: Palo Lado/Irvine Blvd, Westwood/Bryan).

  • Reminders for students WALKING to/from school:
    • Wait at traffic signals (do NOT cross when time has run out)
    • Use crosswalks and cross completely (do NOT cut through the intersection diagonally)
    • Stay on the sidewalk
    • Watch for vehicles and try to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street
  • Reminders for students RIDING BIKES/SKATEBOARDS to/from school:
    • Wait at traffic signals
    • WALK bikes across the crosswalk
    • Ride on the right side of the road
    • Use crosswalks and cross completely (do NOT cut through the intersection diagonally)
    • Watch for other vehicles and try to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street
    • Students MUST wear a helmet
