Staff supervision of students begins at 8:45 a.m. For safety reasons, no students should arrive at school before 8:45 a.m. except for those children who participate in the PrimeTime program beginning at 6:00 a.m.

Student Drop Off

Adults delivering children to school should leave them off at the lunch arbor.

Preschool, and Kindergarten: Parents may drop off students at their classrooms. Following drop-off, parents should leave campus.
Grades 1-6: All students are to go directly to the lunch arbor area and sit at one of the lunch tables. Students are not to go to their classrooms for any reason. Supervision is provided in the cafeteria area, the blacktop area, and various high traffic points on campus.


Our Safety Patrol helps provide safe travel to and from school. The Safety Patrol monitors the intersection of Date and Brookline.


The San Diego Police Department requests that only students in grades four and above ride bicycles to school. Although the school has designated an area next to B1 for students to park bicycles, the San Diego Unified School District is not responsible for theft, damage, or loss of use to any bicycle, equipment or articles left in or around this area. All such risk is assumed by the student.

All bicycles should have locks and licenses. Students are urged to secure their bicycles in an appropriate manner by using a quality lock and chain or other devices.

Helmets are required by California law. Students not wearing helmets may lose the privilege of parking a bike on school grounds. As defined in Vehicle Code Section 21212, any person under 18 years of age must wear a properly fitted and fastened helmet when riding a bicycle, scooter, skateboard, or when wearing in-line or roller skates. Helmets must also meet the standards of either the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).


Students are dismissed promptly at 3:35 p.m. (1:05 p.m. on Thursdays) and should leave campus immediately upon dismissal. Students who ride the bus to and from school will leave shortly after dismissal.

Student Pick Up

Please meet your child at the front gate or at one of the East gates. The East curb is painted white for 3 minute stopping. Signs are posted to assist you. Cars are not to enter the parking lot at any time between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:35 p.m. Please ensure the safety of all students by not parking in the bus loading area at the front of the school and/or asking your child(ren) to cross the street without a crossing guard present. The school"s main concern is for the health and safety of your children.

Specific dismissal procedures vary by grade level, as indicated below:

Kindergarten: Students are dismissed from the blacktop area by their teacher upon seeing a responsible adult or older sibling. Older siblings must come to the blacktop area to pick up younger siblings.
Grades 1-3: Teachers walk all students to the front entrance or Eastside gates of school. All students must be picked up at the front entrance whether they walk home with an older sibling or are picked up by an adult.
Grades 4-6: Teachers dismiss students from the lunch arbor and they are to leave campus via the front entrance or Eastside gates. If they are responsible for a younger student, they must go to the front of school or the Kindergarten pickup area to pick them up and then promptly head home.
PrimeTime Extended Day Program Students: All PrimeTime and licensed day care program students are dismissed from their classrooms and sent to PrimeTime for check in. Kindergarten students are picked up at their classrooms by a PrimeTime staff member.
Bus Students: All buses park in the loading/unloading zone in front of Webster on the North side of campus. All bus students and space-available riders will line up by the appropriate route sign and wait to be called to their bus by a staff member.
