DROP OFF/PICK UP SYSTEM – The morning drop off and afternoon pick up area is in the loading zone in the front office. Remind your child to be waiting by the loading zone area if utilizing this pickup area. Do not park your car in the loading zone area and wait for your child there.  If you are waiting for your child, we ask that you park your car in a marked stall. Please do not park in an unmarked area or drop off in other areas because it will disrupt the flow of traffic or create an unsafe situation. Also do not park on Kapaloala Place alongside the rock wall fronting our school. It blocks the narrow roadway and creates an unsafe situation. Thank you for your cooperation.
