Be Safe - Not Sorry
Before Spring Break, we had a situation in which a car stopped in the middle of the street to let a child out. The student then crossed the street, directly in front of oncoming traffic. Thankfully, it did not result in an accident or injury.
Please remember to pull over and park before letting your child out of the car. If your child needs to cross the street, use the crosswalk or walk with your child to insure a safe situation for everyone.

- Blankets, new or used in good conditions
- Gift cards to Target or Safeway * these are critically needed *
- Hand-written notes of support and encouragement - ideally written by our Alta Vista students
Please drop off the clothing and blankets in the bins outside the cafeteria, and please drop off the cards and gift cards to Ms. Salina in the office.
