Drop Off and Pick Up

Safety and efficiency are our goals for morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up. In an effort to ensure that students enter and exit cars in a safe and organized way we need your partnership during these busy times of the day. Join us in adhering to the procedures described below for drop-off and pick-up.

Morning Drop-Off | 7:30-7:55AM

  • Enter Pacifica’s parking lot by turning right from 15th Street into the entrance nearest Monrovia Avenue. Turning left into Pacifica from 15th Street is not allowed. It is also prohibited to make a U-turn at the intersection of 15th Street and Monrovia.
  • Pull your car as far forward into the marked unloading zone as traffic allows. The unloading zone begins after the U-turn in the marked area in the right line (see attached map). Drivers may drop-off students along entire length of Loading Zone. Students can unload from passenger side of the vehicle only. The driver should remain in the vehicle at all times and all driver side doors are to remain closed. No trunk unloading allowed in this zone. Have all school materials including backpack and lunch ready before student exits vehicle.
  • Once students are dropped-off, drivers may pull into the marked exit lane on the left.
  • Keep pulling forward and fill in all gaps in the Loading Zone Lane.
  • Exit parking lot by turning right onto 15th street. Right turn only during school hours.

Afternoon Pick-Up | 2:40-3:00PM

As over 90% of Pacifica students are involved in a sport, afternoon pick-up will be naturally staggered.

  • Pull your car as far forward into the marked loading zone as traffic allows. The loading zone begins after the U-turn in the marked area (see attached map). Drivers may pick-up students along entire length of the loading zone.
  • Exit parking lot by turning right onto 15th street. Right turn only during school hours.

PickUp

 

General Precautions:

  • Be your child’s best example. Please be courteous and follow all safety guidelines at all times.
  • No drop-offs prior to 7:30AM or pick-ups after 3:30PM as supervision is not provided unless a school event has been scheduled.
  • Follow all directions from school safety personnel. They are there to help this process run smoothly.

Thank you for your continuing support in making Pacifica a safe and productive environment for all.
