Our Safety Patrol helps provide safe travel to and from school. The Safety Patrol monitors the intersection of Date and Brookline.  This year, patrol will begin by October 1.


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.  Please pick your student at the appropriate school gate.  Older siblings are asked to go the classroom of younger siblings.

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.

PrimeTime: 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.
