Parking and Drop-off/Pick-up Information

parkingsignDue to the large number of students we have attending California Middle School this year, parking and student pick-up and drop-off is a challenge.  It is important that everyone follow the rules and procedures established to help ensure that things run as smoothly and safely as possible.

  • Parking: The parking lots in front of the school are for school staff only.   For parents wishing to park their cars, you can park on the street (but only for one hour in designated areas).  Please be courteous of the people who live in this area by not blocking their driveways, leaving litter on yards, or being excessively noisy.
  • Drop-Off/Pick-Up: If you are going to drop your child off or pick them up, please follow the rules of the road. Drop-off children at the curb and allow them to exit the vehicle on the curb side. Do not drop-off or pick-up students in the staff parking lots. Do not drop-off or pick-up students by double parking your vehicle, or by stopping in the street without pulling all the way over to the curb.

Finally, please make sure to follow all traffic laws (i.e. no double parking, not making u-turns in the middle of a road and be observant of pedestrians crossing the street). Observe the crosswalks and crosswalk attendants at all times and observe the posted speed limits.

We need to make sure that we do everything we can to ensure that our students are as safe as possible.
