  • After-School Waiting

    When the dismissal bell rings all students must line up as directed by teachers.  Teachers in grades 1st - 6th will dismiss students out to the ramp or the courtyard at the end of the day.  Teachers keeping students after school must notify parents prior to detention and ensure that students are picked up by parents after detention.  

    (Remember: Students can only remain after school beyond ten minutes with parent permission).

    Any students who have not been picked up 15 minutes after dismissal, should report to the office.

    Kindergarten students will be walked out to the ramp, TK students will be signed out from the classroom and dismissed from the TK/Kindergarten yard.  No primary or upper grade students should be in the TK/Kindergarten yard after dismissal unless supervised by their designated adult.

    Students in 1st – 6th grade must wait for parents or child-care providers on the ramp, in the courtyard, or quietly in front of the school on the bench.

    Families who have children in both primary and upper grades are requested to wait quietly in the courtyard or on the ramp in between the dismissal times, as not to disrupt or distract the upper grades instructional time.  Please do not wait in the yard between the 2:20 and 2:45 dismissal times.

    After-School Care

    If you (the parent) need after-school care, there is a Y-Care located on our campus.  
    You may contact them at (510) 262-6558 for more information.

    Traffic Flow Patterns

    Safe and courteous driving is the key to the success of the traffic plan.  When dropping off your children in front of the school or by the ramp in the morning, let them out in a brisk fashion for the sake of traffic flow and please make sure that they have cleared your vehicle before pulling off.  The gate at the back of the field facing Castro Ranch Road will be open during arrival and dismissal for students to access and exit the school campus.


    The parking lot past the gate, near the multipurpose room is for staff and handicap use only.  Please do not park beyond the front row of parking slots located in the front of the school or beyond the gate.
