Where do I go on March 28th?

Spring Break is March 21-25. When students return on March 28th, it will be to our brand new campus!  But how will they know where to go?  The school site map is below and can be found on pdf here.  The list of teachers and classrooms can be found here.  Your student was given a paper copy of the map and their schedule in class.

OK, so the kids can figure out where to go for class, but where do the parents and guardians drop them off and pick them up?  Notice on the map below (or here) that there are drop off zones on Norvell and Lawrence.  Traffic should move around the school in a clockwise direction.  Please be considerate of the neighbors and do not drop students off in front of houses or on the wrong side of the street.  Students taking AC Transit to school will be dropped off and picked up right on front of the school on Donal.
