Because many families are transporting their children to school, keeping an orderly traffic flow around the school is very important to us. All students should be dropped off on Maryland Avenue at the front gate. Afternoon pick-up will be made on Maryland Avenue (grades 1-6). TK and Kindergarten students will be dismissed at the Maryland Avenue Kindergarten gate towards the top of our campus. Please arrange the pickup location with your child. Use the drop-off/pickup lane going west on Orange and up Maryland. Stop only when you are at the top of the land. If your child is not visible, continue through the “coned” lane and don’t block traffic.
If you walk your child to the Maryland Ave. gate for drop off, please stop at the cones above and below the gate after 7:45 AM and send your child up to the gate/playground for supervision. Parents may not come onto campus to wait with their children for school to begin. If you choose to walk and wait for students at pick-up times, please wait outside the sidewalk gates.
Child Care students entering before 7:45 AM should enter at the gate by the school office so parents can sign in their children at the CDCC classroom (Room 515). A drop-off zone has been arranged specifically for students enrolled in this program.
Please be aware the Administration (and many parents) contact the police to observe and write traffic tickets for those parking and driving unsafely. The Glendale Police Department Traffic Division number is (818) 548-3131. We have two crossing guards at the intersections for student safety, and we have a drive-through lane that is manned before AND after school to assist with a safe entry and exit to school. These measures can only do so much, however. It is largely up to each driver out there to improve the situations that may exist. May we please make the following suggestions to help maintain safe practices and conditions:
IMPORTANT: Due to continuing unsafe and/or illegal traffic situations at drop-off and pick-up times, the Glendale Police Department has suggested that parents witnessing these situations report them to a special traffic phone number at Glendale Police Department: (818) 548-3131. They will need the license number and description of the vehicle involved.
