Welcome back! As you may have noticed, parking gets a little tight in the morning. Drop Off and Pickup is ALWAYS a busy time on campus, but bringing back the drop-off zone this year will help relieve parking woes and increase the efficiency of the space we have. However, we can only bring back the drop-off zone with YOUR help! This vital and important team helps keep our students safe and parents informed.
Parking and Safety PARENTS, PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY.
Using the Drop-Off Circle on Kimberly Drive
- Once active (sign up now!) you may drop off Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd-grade students in the Drop-Off Circle (3rd – 5th graders can use the Drop-Zone on Rodney).
- Children should ONLY EXIT the vehicle on the right passenger side.
- Always pull up to the gate where it says Drop-Off before having your child exit your vehicle.
- DO NOT pass cars in the Drop-Off Circle.
- DO NOT allow children to exit until you’ve reached the Drop-Zone at the end of the circle by the blue gates.
- Have children ready with backpacks, etc. when you reach the Drop Zone (i.e. do not have backpacks, lunch boxes, school projects, etc. in the trunk).
- Say your goodbyes before reaching the Drop Zone.
- Right Turn Only when exiting the Drop-Off Circle.
Driving & Parking Around Hacienda

- Be aware of time limit zones, slow speeds, red zones and white “loading only” zones.
- DO NOT park in the Bus Loading Zones on Kimberly and Vistamont Drives.
- DO NOT park in the staff parking lots on Kimberly and Rodney Drives.
- Never “double park”, block handicap spaces, drop students away from the curb, go around cars in the street, make a u-turn in the school zone
- Do not leave your car if parked in a white 5-Minute Loading Zone
- Please be considerate of our neighbors. Do not: block driveways, bump or move garbage cans, park on or drive through yard clipping piles, etc.
- Always be alert when you are: in your vehicle, walking in crosswalks, and anywhere else that children may be. We need to look out for one another and especially for all Hacienda students.
