Arrival & Departure

Arrival

Staff supervision of students begins at 7:20 a.m. For safety reasons, no students are to arrive at school before 7:20 a.m.

Student Drop Off

Adults delivering children to school should drop them off on Casey in front of school, at the Casey gate by the student drop off and pick up locations marked on Casey Steet.

Kindergarten:

Parents may drop off students at their classrooms. Following drop-off, parents should leave campus.

Grades 1-5:

All students are to go directly to the blacktop. Students are not to go to their classrooms for any reason. Supervision is provided in the blacktop area, and various high traffic points on campus.


Walking

Zamorano's award-winning safety patrol helps provide safe travel to and from school.

Bicycles

The San Diego Police Department requests that only students in grades four and above ride bicycles to school. Although the school has a designated area by the lunch court for students to park bicycles, the San Diego Unified School District is not responsible for theft, damage, or loss of use to any bicycle, equipment or article left in or around this area. All such risk is assumed by the student.

All bicycles should have locks and licenses. Students are urged to secure their bicycles in an appropriate manner by using a quality lock and chain or other devices.

Helmets are required by California law. Students not wearing helmets may lose the privilege of parking a bike on school grounds. As defined in Vehicle Code Section 21212, any person under 18 years of age must wear a properly fitted and fastened helmet when riding a bicycle, scooter, skateboard, or when wearing in-line or roller skates. Helmets must also meet the standards of either the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Dismissal

Students are dismissed promptly at 2:00 p.m. (11:50 a.m. on Wednesdays) and should leave campus immediately upon dismissal. Students who ride the bus to and from school will leave shortly after dismissal.

Student Pick Up

Please meet your child at a designated spot either at the front entrance, at the drop off pick up spot in front of the school on Casey Street, or at the flag pole in front of the school office. The front curb is painted green to indicate 15 minute stopping and white for 3 minute stopping. Signs are posted to assist you. The parking lot is closed to through traffic each morning from 7:15-7:45 a.m. and in the afternoons from 2:00 - 2:20 pm. (Wednesdays from 11:45 a.m. - 12:05 p.m.). Please ensure the safety of all students by not parking in the bus loading area and asking your child to cross the street only where a crossing guard or crosswalk is present. Student safety is a top priority for our school!
