Important Instructions for Pick up and Drop off

Parents - please respect our neighboring businesses at the Rio Vista Professional Building, La Paloma parking lot, Civic Center and Citrus Avenue locations.  We have had many complaints about parents dropping off and/or picking up students at these locations, causing dangerous conditions for our youngsters and congestion for local businesses.   Also, do not pick up or drop off students in the Staff parking lot at the corner of Vista Village and Civic Center. Our safe, supervised drop off and pick up is at the Eucalyptus Avenue entrance to the school.  Thank you. Full info on our Pick up/Drop off page. 

 

Padres - por favor respeten a nuestros negocios vecinos en el Rio Vista Professional Building , La Paloma estacionamiento, Centro Cívico y lugares Citrus Avenue .

Además, no recoger o dejar a los estudiantes en el estacionamiento de maestros en la esquina de Vista Village and Civic Center. Nuestro lugar seguro y supervisado para dejar y recoger es la entrada Eucalyptus Avenue.  Gracias.Toda la información aquí.
