We believe that tardies will be significantly reduced by planning on arriving to school well before the bell rings. Whether you are dropping your child off or he/she is walking to school, please help us in addressing this problem by having your student arrive on time. If your child is not inside the kindergarten gates and in line by 8:15AM, for the AM friends or 11:40 for the PM friends when the bell rings, they will be considered late. All gates to the kindergarten play yard will also be closed. If you arrive late, and the gates are closed, you will need to walk your child to the front office to receive a tardy slip. Please do not try to enter through the child’s classroom door as it will disrupt classroom learning. Students will not be admitted into class without a tardy slip.
As we are concerned about your child’s safety, if you know you are tardy please do not send your child to the play yard unattended as the gates will be locked and there will be no playground supervision once class has started. Children that arrive late will be kept in the front office for a few minutes and walked back to class by a staff member as our gates to the play yard will be closed.
Please make every effort to have your child at school on time. Arriving on time supports our classroom learning and eliminates classroom disruption. We appreciate your help with this matter.

Parking is PROHIBITED on Albion Way. The San Ramon Police Department will be enforcing and ticketing any vehicle parked on Albion Way. Signs are posted and it is a danger to our children when cars are parked in the bike lane.
PM Drop Off: Please make sure you remain in your car. It is a safety and efficiency issue so we prefer the students to unbuckle themselves.
All Parents: DO NOT park across the street and walk towards Hidden Hills without a crosswalk. This is considered jaywalking, is not safe and SRPD will ticket for this as well.
