The Hidden Gem

El Carmelo Elementary School September 16, 2020

Hello El Carmelo Families,

What a difference a week makes. The air quality has improved, and families are ready to get outdoors. We are fortunate to have Rosie Mesterhazy, MPH, City of Palo Alto, Safe Routes to School Coordinator, as an involved El Carmelo parent. She is our PTA Traffic Safety Rep and will represent our school community well! With Rosie's help, we can grow our ability to safely walk, ride, bike, scoot, or carpool our way around town. For more information, take a look at Palo Alto’s Safe Routes to School Website.

Be well,


El Carmelo Supports Green Transportation

In 2019, 55% of E.C. Students Walked, Biked, Bussed or Carpooled to School
