In the interest of keeping our students safe and also providing an efficient transition to and from school, we are asking all SBMS families to review and follow the drop-off and pick-up procedures, and commit to provide a safe environment for our students. Thank you!
DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP IN THE LOWER PARKING LOT ONLY NEVER ON ALAMEDA PADRE SERRA. The official entrance to our school is in the back of the building by the lower parking lot. It is essential that all parents drive to the lower parking lot for drop-off and pick-up. Under no circumstance should students be dropped off or picked up on A.P.S. or in the upper visitor parking lot.
FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS OF THE PARKING ATTENDANTS. Teachers and parent volunteers will be on hand during drop-off and pick-up times to help direct drivers and maintain a safe and orderly environment. Left-hand exits out of the driveway are strongly discouraged during peak exit time of 3:20 pm to 3:45 pm. Your compliance with their directions is essential to smooth and safe transitions.
THE LANE CLOSEST TO THE BUILDING IS FOR PICK-UP & DROP-OFF. Please pull as far forward in this lane as is practical before stopping to drop off your student. Note that THE LANE TO THE LEFT IS FOR PASSING WITHOUT STOPPING, if you have already picked up your student while waiting in line in the Loop 2 area.
REMAIN IN YOUR VEHICLE while in the drop-off loop. Vehicles must be occupied at all times to ensure the smooth flow of traffic. If you need to leave your vehicle, you are welcome to park in the secondary loop in the lower parking lot.
PARK IN THE LOWER PARKING LOT ONLY NEVER ON ALAMEDA PADRE SERRA. If you are visiting school, please make use of the ample parking available.
NO CELL PHONE USE IN THE PARKING LOT. Your full attention is needed at all times when driving through the lot. Please do not use cell phones unless you are parked.
COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR CHILD. Make sure your child knows who is picking him/her up. If you are at the front of the pick-up line and your child/carpool is not there within a reasonable amount of time, please drive around the loop so that the loaded cars behind you can exit.
ALWAYS DRIVE SLOWLY AND CAUTIOUSLY. Please obey the speed limit in the neighborhood on your way to and from school. Do not use your cell phone while driving.
