Safety Reminders

It is important that our students are safe at school and on their way to and from school.  Below are reminders to make sure that our students continue to be safe in our school community:

  • NO U-TURNS on Buena Vista.  Follow the Safe Routes to School driving map for Drop Off Lane access.
  • Come to a full and complete STOP at the corners of Monserat and Buena Vista as well as Cipriani and Buena Vista.  Many of our students walk.  
  • DO NOT DOUBLE PARK on Buena Vista.  The Belmont Police Department will routinely drive by during dismissal and has informed us that they will ticket!
  • NO DOGS on school property, they must be on the public side walk at all times.
  • DO NOT CROSS IN OR NEAR DROP OFF LANE.  This is VERY dangerous.  Drivers are paying attention to drop off lane flaggers NOT you jay walking!  Please walk down to the cross walk at Monserat and Buena Vista or the corner of Palmer and Buena Vista.
  • Please do not drop students off prior to 8:10am, there is no supervision.
  • Campus is closed after school is dismissed for the safety of our childcare program.  If you are waiting for older students please stay in the flagpole/front lawn area only.  
  • Cipriani does have after care provided on campus through Footsteps.
