Drop-off and pick-up at School--Parking Lot Safety--

Our parking lot is small and we have limited spaces, which are mostly reserved, for our staff. Please allow yourself plenty of time to find parking and walk. You may park in the Sherman Oaks parking lot—legal space permitting, along the street, or in the neighboring off-street parking where allowed. Please be thoughtful of our neighbors and do not park on grass, or block driveways, and be courteous to pedestrian and automobile traffic. Our children’s safety is one of our top priorities and your help is much appreciated.

You may drop-off or pick-up your child using the “drop off/pick up” lane on the right side of the parking lot. When using this lane, please make sure your child enters and exits to the right next to the curb, not into the parking lot. This will keep your child safe. If your child is not out front when you arrive for pick-up, please use the inner (passing) lane to circle the parking lot until you see your child. Then you may enter the “loading” lane to pick them up at the curb. Please do NOT block the drop off lane, park in red zones, or unauthorized areas, or leave your car unattended. Thank you for your attention and for keeping your student safe.

Sweatshirts on Sale!

Cold and Flu Season is Coming… Wash hands for Better Health

Children may not always listen when you tell them to wash their hands before eating, but it's a message worth repeating. Hand washing is by far the best way to prevent germs from spreading and to keep your kids from getting sick. No new technology, drug or vaccine is capable of preventing more infections than the simple act of washing one's hands, according to doctors. Washing hands is a major public health intervention to prevent disease -- it's cheap, it's easy, and it works. To reinforce the habit, practice with your children at home.

When is a child too sick to attend school?
For health and safety reasons, your child should not attend school if he/she exhibits any of the following symptoms:

  • A fever of more than 100 degrees
  • Eyes that are red, swollen, crusty, draining, or oozing
  • Diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
  • Contraction of a childhood communicable disease such as chicken pox, measles, or mumps (notify school immediately)
  • A productive cough with yellow or green nasal discharge
  • A severe sore throat
  • Head lice (notify school immediately)
  • An untreated infectious illness such as upper-respiratory infection, pink eye, strep throat, or bronchitis (notify school immediately)
  • Attendance

    With the holiday season around the corner, we know as parents, it can be tempting to extend vacation days and plan for vacations during the regularly scheduled school days. We ask that you refrain from doing so as this can greatly impact your child’s education. We cannot stress enough the importance of attending school daily so your child may receive the necessary instruction. We understand that unforeseen issues do arise, such as illnesses, so please do not forget to contact the office if your child will be absent at: 408-795-1140
