Student Safety Reminders
Red Zones, Double-Parking, & Parking Lot Zone
Parking in Red Zones - Curbs which are painted red should not be used as parking or waiting spots. When vehicles are in these areas, they turn what should be a safe corner/crosswalk into a source of danger for our students and their families.
I realize it may be frustrating when trying to find a parking/waiting spot and none are available; no one likes to wait or drive around numerous times looking for a spot. However, using an option that puts the safety of others at risk should certainly not be an option at all. Some families report that there are usually spots on Vernon Street (the street closest to the 405 freeway). Perhaps give that a try.
On the same note, double parking has also been reported as a safety concern. Double parking is defined parking a vehicle alongside one that is already parked at the side of the road. Not only can it cause a safety risk, but it also stops the flow of traffic causing more wait time and frustration.
Finally, please do not use the gate near our parking lot as a pick-up or drop-off area. It is creating a serious safety issue for those students and families using the nearby sidewalk.
