School Safety

Safety Valet Program

San Jose operates two safety valet lanes in the mornings.  One is in on Clymer Street, in front of the school and the other is on San Jose Street at Gate 4.

To help the flow of traffic run smoothly,

  • Please drive to the end of the lane
  • Make sure your children are ready to exit the vehicle when you stop the car. 
  • Follow the directions of the Safety Valet staff.

Traffic Safety

Morning and afternoon congestion is a serious concern around the school.  Please keep the following in mind when dropping off or picking up your child.

  • Drive clockwise around the school so that you child enters/exits the car on the school side of the street.
  • Please do not drive through or park in the staff parking lot or block the entrance or exit when dropping off or picking up students.- it's too dangerous!!
  • Do not encourage students to jaywalk or go into the street to enter double parked vehicles.
  • Please SLOW DOWN and obey all traffic laws.
