Drop Off and Pick Up Traffic Flow

The Padilla staff have spent a good deal of time planning for student drop off and pick up. These times of the day are always some of the most stressful for parents and staff members. While we have a plan, we know we will need to make adjustments. We appreciate your patience and grace as we work to understand the traffic flow at our new school. Please take a look at the plan linked below!

Before School Class Meeting Locations

When you arrive tomorrow, please meet your child's teacher in the designated location on the front lawn. Teachers will be outside in their designated areas with signs to help you find them. They will be outside starting at 7:35 AM. You can find those locations linked below!

At 7:55 AM we will welcome students into the building through our front doors and teachers will walk students to their classrooms. To help facilitate an easier transition, we ask that you please do not enter the building with your child.

Starting on Thursday, all students will enter the building through the front doors and go immediately to their classrooms or the cafeteria to pick up breakfast.

School Supplies

Please send your child with their school supplies on the first day of school! School supply lists are linked below!
