Parking Lot Safety
We continue to have concerns with safety in our parking lot and bus area during arrival and dismissal. We have parents who have stepped up to volunteer, Safety Patrol leaders and many families who are following the expectations. We are very fortunate that our lot does flow pretty well when we all follow the expectations.
Our CVESD buses and vans park on the Northwest side of our campus at arrival and dismissal to pick up and drop off students. We understand that the use of transportation vans has caused a little confusion and now some of our families are parking in this area. The only vehicles that can park on this small section of the street (Northwest curb to the right of our exit) are CVESD buses and vans. When family vehicles park there, it prevents the buses/vans from being able to park, thus blocking all of the other cars that are trying to get into or out of our lot. Thank you for keeping this in mind when you are looking for a place to load and unload.
For your review, here are the traffic and parking lot expectations:
- Red Curbs – “as required under California Vehicle Code Section 21458(a)(1), a curb painted red shall indicate no stopping, standing, or parking whether the vehicle is attended or unattended.”
- The left lane in the parking lot is for traffic to move through. Parking/stopping in the left lane blocks cars from being able to exit. Students should not exit or enter vehicles that are in the left lane.
- Use crosswalks for crossing the street and parking lot. When dropping students off, please be sure that they exit the vehicle on the right so that they get out directly onto the sidewalk closest to the school building.
- Follow traffic patterns and do not double park along parking spaces.
- Right turn only out of our lot during arrival and dismissal.
Here are our Safety Patrol leaders with reminders of what their different signals mean:
If you would like to volunteer in our parking lot, please let me know at email@example.com.
YMCA Annual Campaign Is Going Strong!
Each year, the YMCA holds their Annual Campaign and Tiffany Elementary is proud to support their efforts. The YMCA does a tremendous amount of work in our community and it is more than child care. Their Annual Campaign allows the YMCA to provide many opportunities in our community including scholarships for childcare, events for seniors, memberships for unsheltered members of our community and more.
At Tiffany this year, we will support the Annual Campaign by having a coin drive. Our individual classrooms have containers where students can bring in donations that will be donated to the YMCA. The drive will go from Monday, February 12th through Friday, March 1st. The primary and upper grade class with the highest donation total will win a field day hosted by our YMCA team!
If you would like to make a classroom donation, but would rather donate via our YMCA page, CLICK HERE – write your child’s name and room number in the memo line and we will dd it to your classroom total.
The YMCA will also be selling popsicles every Friday through March 8th in front of the school. All money raised will go toward the Annual Campaign. Thank you for your support!
