School Police Traffic Safety Updates - Our Safe Routes to School Coordinator, Officer Cloud, has completed an excellent back to school safety video. We know that parking is limited, and we are sorry about that. It is our priority to keep our children safe. The BEST place to park for any length of time is on Avenida de Landa or on the north side of Ambassador! There is no parent parking or drop off or pick up in the staff parking lot – it is not safe for students, and we really don’t even have enough parking spots for our staff members. Also – the YELLOW zones are for dropping off and picking up students – not for parking and leaving the car. The only place a car is to be parked and left is at a regular (not painted) curb. No parking at all at RED curbs. We do have a handicapped (BLUE) designation at the front of the school.
Student Drop-off and Pick-up - Within the Ambassador Drive “Kiss and Go” please do not park. This is a drop-off and pick-up zone only. Please watch for students on the crosswalk. Parents, if at all possible, ask your students to walk along the south side (the u-side) of the kiss and go sidewalk. It is easier for the cars to see the pedestrians.The Washoe County School District website may contain links that lead to resources, video, etc., which is located on servers that are not maintained or controlled by the District.
