Dropping Off & Picking Up Students

Drop-off and Pick-up by car: When dropping off and picking up your student we ask that you drive through the lot using the route below. During pickup, for obvious safety reasons students will not be allowed to get into a car outside of the parking area unless accompanied by an adult.

Loading Zone: Please use the designated loading zone as shown on the map to drop off and pickup your children. Staff members are available after school to assist you in this area.

Kindergarten Pickup

Notices, Flyers, Posters

The permission of the Director of K-12 Education and Principal is required before posting or distributing any material on the campus. If you have a classroom related or Parent Club notice to be distributed, please submit a copy to the school secretary for Mr. Manning's initial. Please do not put anything in teacher’s boxes for distribution without prior approval. Thank you. You can see the current flyers & notices from Peachjar here.

Lost & Found

All belongings, which come to school with your child, SHOULD BE LABELED. Students often forget or misplace clothing, books, backpacks, etc. For your sanity and pocketbook, please take the time to label everything taken to school so they don’t get lost in the lost and found. In case the inevitable happens, check the lost and found barrel in the multi-use room. We will keep items for a reasonable length, and then send them on to a local charity thrift store. Students are urged not to bring valuable items or excessive amounts of money to school.

Parent University

The goal of Napa Valley Parent University is to provide parents with the tools and knowledge necessary to become more involved in their children’s education, at school and in the community.

All of our classes are offered bilingually, in English and Spanish, in the morning and evening. They are provided free and childcare is provided during all classes. We work hard to eliminate any barriers that might prevent interested parents from participating.
